Light Up


In a previous post, we highlighted an abridged version of the song Run. Here's the original by Snow Patrol. Composed by frontman Gary Lightbody (the singer in the vid) after he was seriously injured falling down a flight of stairs (after some binge drinking), the lyrics can be read as a farewell bid or reaching out from 'the realm of angels'. From the chorus:

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice

Yes, light up as if you have a choice - and even if you do not have a choice.
