If There's a Rocket Tie Me To It
Snow Patrol Lyrics


Two weeks later like a surplus reprieve.
I found a hair the length of yours on my sleeve,
I wound it round and round my finger so tight.
It turned to purple and a pulse formed in sight,
And I knew the beat 'cause it marched your own beat.
I still remember that from our chest to chest then feet to feet.
The easy silence then was a sweet relief to this hush,
Of ovens airplanes and of distant car points.

A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry,
A pulse, you're pulse, it's the only thing I can remember.
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, the cracks and the barks like primal music.

I said I knew the beat 'cause it marched your own beat.
It's become my engine my own source of heat.
The sea between us only amplifies the sound waves,
And every hum and echo in crash paints my cave.

A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry,
A pulse, you're pulse, it's the only thing I can remember.
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, the cracks and the barks like primal music.

A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry,
A pulse, you're pulse, it's the only thing I can remember.
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, the cracks and the barks like primal music.

“ Two weeks later like a surplus reprieve
I found a hair, the length of yours on my sleeve
I wound it round and round my finger so tight
It turned to purple and a pulse formed inside
And I knew the beat 'cause it matched your own beat
I still remember it from our chest to chest and feet to feet
The easy silence then was a sweet relief to this hush
Of ovens, aeroplanes and of distant car horns
A fire, a fire
You can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse
It's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't
I was always set to self-destruct though
The fire, the fire
It cracks and barks like primal music
I said I knew the beat 'cause it matched your own beat
It's become my engine, my own source of heat
The sea between us only amplifies the sound waves
Every hum and echo and crash paints my cave
A fire, a fire
You can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse
It's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't
I was always set to self-destruct though
The fire, the fire
It cracks and barks like primal music
A fire, a fire
You can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse
It's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't
I was always set to self-destruct though
The fire, the fire
It cracks and barks like primal music “

I've read the entirety of the Snow Patrol lyrics, and in my opinion is Gary an excellent lyricist, one of the finest I've known.

I even saved the Snow Patrol lyrics page on AZ LYRICS website.

Noah Otten

Snow Patrol is so amazing; they can make the most vague and abstract lyrics mean the most straightforward and meaningful things. It requires a little perception, but I've found that all of their songs can mean something to someone. The experience is worth it :)

I think it's about a dog
