Melodic Mondays: Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

I may or may not be in love with this song, lol. It’s just... it’s brilliant and so, so pretty. I love how it expresses such love without ever actually saying the word; just the lyrics and the feel of the music breathe the emotion, and more importantly, the action, all the way through. Now, I desperately need to see a couple’s dance to this song (and I may or may not be planning a scene where two of my characters do one. Maybe).

My favorite lyric song is “Those three words are said too much. They’re not enough.” I can just imagine a music video with a boy and a girl sitting somewhere on a date and he says this to her. Then the rest of the song, they’re just spending time together, maybe going on picnics or hiking through a forest (which is weird, because I don’t think I’d actually like that) or just laying out in the grass and watching the clouds together. Proving their love not with trite words, but by being together, by always being there for each other, by becoming the best of friends. By having those moments when it’s okay for them to just sit in silence, to simply lay here, be together, and forget the world.


If I finish my first NaNo story in time, I might start a short story based on this song. I don’t know where it would go and I’ve never written pure romance before, but right now, that doesn’t really matter to me. I simply adore Chasing Cars, and I know there are stories buried somewhere in that music and those lyrics. And if things to plan, I'll get to find at least one and write it down. :)

So what’s a favorite writing song of yours? Especially one that describes a couple in your novels? How do you normally handle romance (if you have any?) or like to see it handled? Can’t wait to see you in the comments. :)
