It's Beginning to Get to Me
Snow Patrol Lyrics


I want something
That's purer than the water
Like we were

It's not there now
Ineloquence and anger
Are all we have

Like Saturn's rings
An icy loop around me
Too hard to hold

Lash out first
At all the things we don't like
Or understand

And it's beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what's in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get, get my point?
They're always fighting with aching joints
It's doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight's about

The answer phone
The lonely sound of your voice
Frozen in time

I only need
The compass that you gave me
To guide me on

And it's beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what's in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get get my point?
They're always fighting with aching joints
It's doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight's about

It's so thrilling but also wrong
Don't have to prove that you are so strong
'Cause I can carry you on my back
After our enemies attack

I tried to tell you before I left
But I was screaming under my breath
You are the only thing that makes sense
Just ignore all this present tense

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I'm gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I've lost

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I'm gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I've lost

This is by far my favorite Snow Patrol song and is likely my favorite song of all time. The track features a unique and rather nontraditional progression, not to mention brilliant instrumentation and an epic build-up! The actual writing in this is something to behold as well, especially with how they carry the imagery of water, coldness, and ice throughout the song. Anyway, this song is the epitome of what contemporary music should strive to be in my opinion and I can't get enough of it 😍

Keith Jones

It's definitely one of their best! I've always thought it's perfect in every way, l will never tire of it either.
