Music Prompt #13: Snow Patrol – “Run” #musicchallenge #amwriting #music 

Sorry I’m late with this prompt that usually takes place on Friday! Today’s song is from another band I likecalked Snow Patrol. I have chosen the song “Run.” Even though it starts off slow it’s a very encouraging song and I think we can all use a bit of encouragement on life. So as the lead singer says, “Light up, light up” this weekend.

“Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish-Scottish rock band formed in 1993, consisting of Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar), Nathan Connolly (guitar, backing vocals), Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), and Johnny McDaid (piano, guitar, backing vocals).After, Starfighter Pilot (1997) and losing Morrison as a band member, the band became Snow Patrol in 1997 and added Quinn to its line-up. 

Their first two studio albums, Songs for Polarbears (1998) and When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up (2001), were commercially unsuccessful and were released by the independent record label Jeepster Records. The band completed their album Eyes Open in December 2005, and this album was released on 28 April 2006 in Ireland and was released in North America on 9 May. 

While “Hands Open” was the first American single, “Chasing Cars” pushed its way onto the download and pop charts after it was heard during an emotional scene of the second-season finale of the television show Grey’s Anatomy on 15 May 2006. 

Due to the song’s surprise popularity, it was released as an overlapping single in early June and the video was re-recorded to include clips from the show. “Chasing Cars” was also nominated for ‘Best Single’ in the 2006 Grammy Awards. On 26 November 2006, Eyes Open had become the UK’s best-selling album of the year, overtaking previous leader.

 It earned the title of  the UK’s best-selling album of 2006, with 1.6 million in sales. The album reached platinum certification in the US as well, selling over 1,000,000 copies, and it maintained a spot in the upper quarter of the Billboard 200 list for over fifteen weeks, on the heels of “Chasing Cars”

Use SnowPatrol’s song “ Run” as inspiration for any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, etc.). Alternatively, If you are a musician use this as an opportunity to showcase your own work.

Who are the people you can depend on who are there for you in life? Who makes you “light up” and calms you, helping you not to worry about circumstances you cannot change? Tellmeanout or tell me about your ‘person’ the one who you depend on.

Snow Patrol – “Run”

Snow Patrol – “Run”

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go

You’ve been the only thing that’s right

In all I’ve done

*****
And I can barely look at you

But every single time I do

I know we’ll make it anywhere

Away from here

*****
Light up, light up

As if you have a choice

Even if you cannot hear my voice

I’ll be right beside you dear

*****
Louder louder

And we’ll run for our lives

I can hardly speak I understand

Why you can’t raise your voice to say

*****
To think I might not see those eyes

Makes it so hard not to cry

And as we say our long goodbye

I nearly do

*****
Light up, light up

As if you have a choice

Even if you cannot hear my voice

I’ll be right beside you dear

*****
Louder louder

And we’ll run for our lives

I can hardly speak I understand

Why you can’t raise your voice to say

*****
Slower slower

We don’t have time for that

All I want’s to find an easy way

To get out of our little heads

*****
Have heart, my dear

We’re bound to be afraid

Even if it’s just for a few days

Making up for all this mess

*****
Light up, light up

As if you have a choice

Even if you cannot hear my voice

I’ll be right beside you dear

*****
