The fourth track off Snow Patrol's newest album release, A Hundred Million Suns. Snow Patrol is based out of Northern Ireland and is following up a very successful run with their Eyes Open album, which sold over 4.7 million copies worldwide.
As their leader and main songwriter Gary Lightbody put it:
This is our most complete record by far. A Hundred Million Suns sounds like the marriage of everything we learned from the Jeepster years and the Fiction years made into something new and bolder. Our spikiness and our indie-ness are coming through again with all the poppiness of the last two records. Theres a lot of melody here and you cant cloak that whatever you do with it. This album is touched by our entire history, and hopefully sounds like our future too.

If you enjoy this song, then go buy the album! An honest and outstanding collection.

The pictures are just visual filler, be sure to enjoy the music, spread the word, and leave comments! Enjoi!

Lyrics (as requested):
Hold on hold on, let me get the words out before I burst
There's no truth at all poking at the giant eyes of ancient gods
Cool heads have failed now it's time for me to have my turn
Kiss me kiss me, life is way too short to scream and shout.

Flashed up in my wildest dreams the dark red blood streams
Stretching out like vast cracked ice
The veins of you the veins of me like great forest trees
Pushing through and on and in
Gliding like a satellite in the broken night
And when I wake you're there I'm saved
Your love is life piled tight and high set against the sky
That seems to balance on it's own

Sing out sing out, the silence only eats us from the inside up
I meant no harm but I only get to say these words too late
Wake up wake up, sleeping only leads to more and more nightmares
Snap out of it you said it in a way that showed you really cared.

Flashed up in my wildest dreams the dark red blood streams
Stretching out like vast cracked ice
The veins of you the veins of me like great forest trees
Pushing through and on and in
Gliding like a satellite in the broken night
And when I wake you're there I'm saved
Your love is life piled tight and high set against the sky
That seems to balance on it's own

Send your lifeboats out for me
Send your lifeboat out

Edit: 95k hits!!! Keep it up youtube! Cheers!
