Top 10 Songs of the 21st Century
The Contenders: Page 16
This song captured what many families were going through during the first decade of this century and beyond with loved ones going off to war.
You are the cancer spreading its wings
So selfishly unaware to the things
Resistance is fuel into my well-being
I feel my heart leaking
(You! ) Start as a fissure, a crack in the skin
(You! ) Become an ulcer permeating
If I had known about you to
Would it be soon, what I do to you?
I don't want to hate you, but how could I not?
You killed off so much I held dear in my heart
Take away every single pain (single pain! )
That infects each and every day (everyday! )
I will bury you once and for all
You're a monster, you're built to fall
You're built to fall!
This song is amazing. This list kind of does not satisfy me. Many good songs are not included in it. Well, talking about this brilliant piece of art, it was composed and sung by a critically acclaimed alternative rock band Snow Patrol. The song was nominated for a 2007 Grammy Award for "Best Rock Song" as well as for a 2007 BRIT Award for "Best Single". And as of 8 January 2012, the single has spent 108 weeks on the official UK Top 75 Singles Chart and 154 on the Top 100 and has sold 816,877 copies in the UK.
