If you were here beside me instead of in New York
If the curve of you was curved on me
I'd tell you that I loved you before I even knew you
Because I loved the simple thought of you
If our hearts are never broken and there's no joy in the mending
There's so much this hurt can teach us both
And there's distance and there's silence, your words have never left me
They're the prayer that I say every day.

Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.

The lone neon lights and the heat of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all, from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps, me in two.

If you were here beside me instead of in New York
Of the arms you said you'd never leave
I'd tell you that it's simple and it was only ever thus
There is nowhere else that I belong.

Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.
Come on, come out, come here, come here.

The lone neon lights and the heat of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps, me in two
Just give me a sign, there's an end with a beginning
To the quiet chaos driving me back
The lone neon lights and the warmth of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to go out.

Definitely one of my favourite Snow Patrol songs ever. Mr Lightbody did it again, perfect lyrics.
I have to agree with that sentiment after a shitty week of toil, this has just lifted me on this Friday evening.

But then Snow Patrol frequently lifts me, it's just a pleasant surprise.
Perfect at this moment. Thx
I have this album and don't really remember this track. I shall be revisiting it soon - it's rather catchy...
