Chasing Cars

"If I lie here, if I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?"
Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars

All it takes is a moment, for the universe to rob your solid ground below when you are busy chasing other things which seem so important, that next deadline, that next meeting, that next exam. When you are so busy chasing other things, life could just suddenly vanish before your eyes and all you are left with will be flashes of memories of times when you last laughed together, when you last cried together and when enough time passes you by, you forget the sounds of those memories and no matter how much you try to call out, the silence only becomes louder. 

"Interviewer: Why can’t you be alone without Yoko?

John Lennon: But I can be alone without Yoko, but I just have no wish to be. There’s no reason on earth why I should be alone without Yoko. There’s nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. Both of us could survive apart but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love for any whore or any friend or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night and neither of us want to be. and you can’t fill a bed with groupies. It doesn’t work. I don’t want to be a swinger. I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have someone you love hold you."
