tunes-DAY TUESDAY: SET FIRE TO THE THIRD BAR


So, this song has been around for a minute. I had this Snow Patrol album for a long time before I gave this song a chance. I don't know why but I skipped it for the longest. Then one day for no good reason, I listened to it and hark! the song was a delight. I hope you think it's a delight as well. 
P.S. What the heck are they going on about, though? Why are you setting fire to the third bar and not the first or second bar? I don't understand. Why are you setting fire to anything?

  3. According to wiki it's because his aunt used to have an electric heater and would allow them to light all three bars sometimes. So setting fire to the third bar is kind of like that, but with emotions or something? The explaination makes sense...I'm making a muck of it.
