Song Lyric Sunday – It’s Beginning To Get To Me by Snow Patrol

I honestly had no idea what song I was going to pick today.  The one I would have picked if I hadn’t used it already would have been Breathe by Anna Nalick.  But, I’m all about not duplicating here on the bog so I had to go search for something else.

I was so excited when I actually read the lyrics to this song.  Ever since I heard Snow Patrol for the first time, I’ve been in love with them.  There’s just something in their music that touches me in a deep way and I think their lyrics are amazing.

This song makes me think of my last marriage.  It was hard for me to be with someone whom I felt was so cold.  I felt alone all the time, even when right next to him.  I’m a pretty passionate person and the lyric in this song, “we need to feel breathless with love” is exactly how I feel about love.  I also felt like I was “screaming under my breath” just to be heard.  It was a sad existence and I’m happy I finally found courage enough to walk away.

I could not have imagined then that I would find the love of my life and finally feel that passion and peace that I’ve always longed for.

I hope you enjoy!

Lyrics found on Google Play Music

I want something
That’s purer than the water
Like we were

It’s not there now
Ineloquence and anger
Are all we have

Like Saturn’s rings
An icy loop around me
Too hard to hold

Lash out first
At all the things we don’t like
Or understand

And it’s beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what’s in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get, get my point?
They’re always fighting with aching joints
It’s doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight’s about

The answer phone
The lonely sound of your voice
Frozen in time

I only need
The compass that you gave me
To guide me on

And it’s beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what’s in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get get my point?
They’re always fighting with aching joints
It’s doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight’s about

It’s so thrilling but also wrong
Don’t have to prove that you are so strong
‘Cause I can carry you on my back
After our enemies attack

I tried to tell you before I left
But I was screaming under my breath
You are the only thing that makes sense
Just ignore all this present tense

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I’m gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I’ve lost

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I’m gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I’ve lost

  1. They are great. One of their more well known songs was my sister’s wedding song, but this one is new to me. Thanks for sharing. I am off to find something new because Anna was my only idea, but I repeated a few weeks ago.
