I find it strange that no matter how hard I try to go in a different direction, I always seem to end up with the first thing that came into my head when I came up with the theme. It’s no different this week. I thought this song was maybe sideways to the theme, but chocolate is technically candy, right?
Ever since I first heard Snow Patrol on the radio, I’ve loved them. Although the video is slightly weird and I find that the lyrics have nothing whatsoever to do with chocolate, I still love it. If you stick around for the ending of the video, it’s worth it. I finally understood what the video was about, anyway, and I think it’s an important message. We don’t always have to run just because there’s a deadline or a clock ticking down, but we always seem to do it just because we should. I don’t know, it’s worth thinking about.
Anyway, even though the lyrics don’t fit the theme, I figure the title does (sort of), and that’s good enough for me.
I hope you enjoy!
This could be the very minute
I’m aware I’m alive
All these places feel like home
With a name I’d never chosen
I can make my first steps
As a child of twenty-five
This is the straw, final straw in the
Roof of my mouth as I lie to you
Just because I’m sorry doesn’t mean
I didn’t enjoy it at the time
You’re the only thing that I love
Scares me more every day
On my knees I think clearer
Goodness knows I saw it coming
Or at least I’ll claim I did
But in truth I’m lost for words
What have I done? It’s too late for that
What have I become? Truth is nothing yet
A simple mistake starts the hardest time
I promise I’ll do anything you ask, this time
