#MusicMonday REACHING OUT TO YOU - Snow Patrol & The Saturday Songwriters

 


Monday means music! Thanks to Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek who hosts this weekly chance to share a favourite song or video - come join in the fun!

This week I've chosen Snow Patrol again but with a difference! Throughout lockdown, Gary Lightbody started hosting a weekly songrwiting community via his Instagram and I have to say it was the highlight of my week! We'd all come together on a Saturday evening, picking chords, throwing lyrics his way and after an hour he'd create a song!  This carried on for 11 or so weeks and was just brilliant to be part of! And what is even more amazing is that now some of the songs we all created have been put out as an EP to raise funds for The Trussell Trust. The EP is out now so if you want a copy click here.

This video was made by a fan that just sums up the saturday evening process and it is so much fun to watch back!


God I wish that you could see me See my soul and my desire Yeah I wish that you could hear me Through the sound of all these fires If it feels like I could hate you 'Cause the silence can't be hacked Know I'm screaming out forever Please come back, come back, come back All of those nights before this They're not like nights ahead It's like there's space between us Of things that won't need said Words like, "God I miss you" For I'm still reaching out to you Through these deranged horizons The things we always knew What the Hell are we still doing In the shadows of the night? Let the light and all the grace you have Just obliterate me right Know the last time that I saw you Is not the last page of the book Yeah maybe I can hear the thunder But all I need is just one look All of those nights before this They're not like nights ahead Inside there's space between us Of things that won't need said Words like, "God I miss you" For I'm still reaching out to you Through these deranged horizons The things we always knew Afraid to fall without you, so I'll wait Sweetest of my sins, the world create Holding onto love and hope you do[?] I see it in your eyes, the memories Love me like no other history Holding onto love and hope you do[?] [Instrumental Break] All of those nights before this They're not like nights ahead Inside there's space between us Of things that won't need said Words like, "God I miss you" For I'm still reaching out to you Through these deranged horizons The things we always knew Through these deranged horizons I'm still reaching out to you
