Spectacular track, one of the best of the decade!

Unbelievably awesome. Would have been #1 for sure if ARIA had allowed it to chart. Deserved to be as well.
******
Such an amazing song!
******
Excellent Track! Deserved a much better chart run. One of my favourites from '06.

Love this song, too bad it didn't hit Top 50.
******
very good song! my fav from snow patrol
***
I certainly don't like this as much as everyone else! Ok though.
******
It's a really good track but it's one that has been killed from constant airplay!

Great song, romantic but not at the least bit sappy. and the building climax is wondrous.
***
I've never thought much of this but I don't mind listening to it. 2.5

Not a bad song, but it didn't deserve all the success it got as they have much better songs. The climax is unspectacular and the rather suicidal clip doesn't do the trick either.
**
Stupid film clip! And also I think the song is lame and boring.
****
How this didn't hit the charts, let alone hit number one the ARIA charts i will never know!
But it's only a 4 because I find it very hard to listen to these days and they have had better tracks than this.

Really nice song and one of the best of the 2000's.
*****
so nice... love it!
***
Fine, I'll admit it's okay. I'm not sure I ever need to hear it again but it's at least not too offensive and not quite as boring as I used to think. Still not a fan really but it does have some nice things about it. Truly one of the greatest examples of overplay etc. making a song near unlistenable (though this is more of a thing of the past). Regardless of my opinion of the song, it's pretty sad that due to some questionable ARIA chart rules it never charted until 2007 when it was well after its peak in popularity.

I found it okay at its time of release, but I'm finding myself to dislike it more with time.
*****
Really? This song never made top 50? Oh wow, um, gee.

A very peaceful ballad that rivals REM's 'Everybody Hurts'.
****
4 stars
******
Very nice flawless track. But overplay did ruin any chance for a 6.
EDIT: I think enough time has passed where the severe overplay it got at the time is longer affecting my opinion of this, a 6 now. Would have been a guaranteed Top 5 smash if ARIA didn't have their stupid physical rule. Was #1 on the ARIA Download Chart for many weeks, wish I could remember the exact amount, aw well. A 2000s Classic!

Great song. A pity it didn't get into the ARIA Top 50, it would have been a nice #1.
******
Amazing song. One of my all time faves. It's an absolute disgrace that this didn't chart in Australia at the time due to stupid rules not including downloads in the singles charts.
