Chasing Cars

I first saw this song on a bereaved parents site and the title intrigued me.  It's interesting how so many songs that are probably written about star-crossed lovers fit so well into a bereaved parent's grief.

William loved cars.  He would sit on the floor and play with cars for hours on end.  Or drive around in the power wheels police car.  He really loved getting to touch the Lightning McQueen car when we went to Disney World.

Anyway, that was what first drew me to this song.  As I listened to it, it really made me think about the busy-ness of life.  So much hustle and bustle.  My favorite times with William (and I believe his, as well) were times I spent just lying next to him in the bed, reading or singing or talking about nothing, really.  I would love to have a wall to wall bed and just lie down with my whole family and forget anything else exists.  What a nice dream...

Lyrics:
We'll do it all, everything
On our own
We don't need anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say how I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden
That's bursting into life

Let's waste time 
Chasing cars around our heads
1
I need your grace to remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden
That's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes
They're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things
Will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?
