#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 one in history
Holding onto love and hope you do

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
