Snow Patrol – Life On Earth lyrics
[Verse 1]
The first snow
The first winter of my life
I was told it was the height of me
The first dance
Well, the first one that counted
Felt like my blood was built my from crackling lights

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Oh this ancient wildness
That we don't understand
The first sound of a heartbeat
To riot roaring on

[Chorus]
This is not love you had before
This is something else
This is something else
This is not the same as other days
This is something else
This is something else

Shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth
It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth

[Verse 2]
The first light
The first light on the silent shore
Just the ships set anchor me and you
The way home
This is always the way home
So you can rip that map to shreds, my dear

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But all we ever wanted
See miles and miles from here
In the first days in a strange new land
We could be sailors

[Chorus]
This is not love you had before
This is something else
This is something else
This is not the same as other days
This is something else
This is something else

Shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth
It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth

Shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth
It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
This is life on earth
It's just life on earth
