I'm an old lady and not much for romanticism in prose and lyrics, but I think the phrase we'd share each other like an island is just a beautiful expression of intensely romantic and physical love.
I don't think that I would feel so sad when hearing this song if not for the female voice...

Best song I ever heard In my life
Amazing, beautiful, heartbreakin g . . . .
What an incredibly beautiful song.
Martha Wainwright is the female singer. Not familiar with her work, but I do like her in this.
I'm miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground
I pray that someone picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms...
=_) awww
amazing song, such a beautiful tone
This song is in a movie and I can't put my finger on it ... Fml lol

I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! she has an amazing voice that just works so well with his!
Crazy Real there!
Such a pretty tune
Great complimentar y pairing of vocals.
I love this song! Just love it! The background vocals need credit, she brings an ominous element which would otherwise be lacking...da m m n i t ! I LOVE IT!!!!
The girl singing back up vocals sounds great(& isnt Kate Bush & if u don't like Kate U have both mental problems & no taste when it comes to what is good music & who are good singers!)! This is my favourite Snow Patrol song thus far as they,like many artists just keep getting better as they go!

it's Martha Wainwright

The girl singing isn't Kate Bush
I hate Kate Bush. Hey, why doesn't Pandora play Chasing Cars?
Im not so sure about the girl singing in the background.. . otherwise i really like them
if there is "no peace that you've found so far" - you haven't tried Bikram's Yoga
Sounds like Kate Bush singing.
Snow Patrol's most powerful song, along with "Make this go on forever" Haunting, and the buildup is great!

I thought that was Dolly too, Laura!

Powerful and deeply moving. Such building power...Snow Patrol was a total surprise to me and this coupling with Martha Wainwright just shows that they are far more than just another vacuous over-produce d pop band.
i thought it was dolly parton when the girl started to sing
poloinsigh
Kate Bush didn't come to mind but its Martha Wainwright. Snow Patrol are brilliant - they grow on you and I think they have a bright future. The little island of Ireland does it again...

best song ever. its so emotional, i just love it. its in the new dear john trailer :)
I love this song!
wow everything i've heard from snow patrol so far was terrible pop but this.... this is actually good. this sounds so different from the snow patrol i know and i love it!
Wow, I thought it was Kate Bush as well.
I don't feel alone in my ignorance ...
i thought the same.
Thanks for that! I thought it was Kate Bush. Loudon and Rufus are the bomb. Quite a family.
I thought the same thing with Kate Bush as well.

Ah, Martha Wainwright, thanks. It kind of sounded like a young Kate Bush. Great song.
It's Martha Wainwright
I wish someone would tell me cause set the fire to the third bar is an amazing song
