"Velocity Girl" as written by and Quinn/lightbody/mcclelland....
Oh velocity girl
What makes you go so fast
Is it the speed you're taking
Since you gave up the drinking
Oh velocity girl

I can't keep up with you
Can't stand to be alone
Think you should be with me
Just want to stay here in your arms
Oh velocity girl

Try harder to stay put
Understand me when I say
Please don't leave today
Oh velocity girl

I don't know what I'm thinking
Since I gave up the drinking
Please just stay with me
Just want to stay here in your arms
Oh velocity girl

Can I though your hand
Can I move it here
Don't you understand?

Just want to stay here in your arms
Just want to stay here in your arms
Just want to stay here in your arms
Just want to stay here in your arms

    General CommentThis song seems like it was written about the girl in the Primal Scream song also titled "Velocity Girl," but going a bit further post "vodka in her veins"

    General CommentIt's about falling for a drug addict. I love how the note sort of lingers at the end of 'Just wanna stay here in your arms', and then when they repeat it near the end... beautiful.

    I love the way Gary Lightbody's voice goes, it turns into nearly a whisper...

    General Commentcan't get over this song. the guitars, gary's soft voice and the lyrics. this song makes me high. it's about a girl he obviously loves but can't be with her because they'll just destroy each other.

    General CommentIt's a song about a little spitfire. She moves fast... Maybe she thinks quickly or learns quickly. This guy is just dying for her to slow down and be cuddle with him. It is a really cute song.

    General CommentIt is about that kind of relationship where things went too fast, one of them was looking only for entertaiment, one searched for something deeper.
    One of My favourite Snow Patrol's songs
