Snow Patrol - Chocolate
This could be the very minute
I'm aware I'm alive
All these places feel like home.
With a name I'd never chosen
I can make my first steps
As a child of 25.
This is the straw, final straw in the
Roof of my mouth as I lie to you
Just because I'm sorry doesn't mean
I didn't enjoy it at the time.
You're the only thing that I love
It scares me more every day
On my knees I think clearer.
Goodness knows I saw it coming
Or at least I'll claim I did
But in truth I'm lost for words.
What have I done it's too late for that
What have I become truth is nothing yet
A simple mistake starts the hardest time
I promise I'll do anything you ask... This time.
"Chocolate" is the third single from Snow Patrol's third album, Final Straw. The single version is slightly different from the album version. The most noticeable difference is the chime solo between the 1st chorus and 2nd verse on the single, instead of the continued guitar riff. Despite the song's comparatively upbeat tone and guitar riff, its lyrics are of desperation and solemn self-reflection. An edited version of "Chocolate" is featured on the trailer for The Last Kiss, starring Zach Braff. It also features in the Torchwood episode "Cyberwoman".
