Passenger Lyrics

Words Lyrics
Well the first time that I saw her
Standing in the middle of the road
Eyes as bright as Christmas lights
Wearing someone else's clothes
I did my best to ignore her
But ignoring my best pretty soon
We spent the night all tangled tight
In an armchair in my friends front room

I said darling you know
Darling you know I can't stay
Cause I've given my heart and my word to a girl far away
I felt weak as she kissed my cheek
And sighed when I heard her say
Never knew I could get my heart broken in less than a day

Oh and the next time that I saw her
Must have been a year or more
Face stained with mascara
Shivering outside my door
I did my best to assure her
But assurance isn't easy to give
If you've never been sure of anything much
And get less so the longer you live

She said darling you know
Darling you know I can't stay
Cause I've given my heart and my word to a boy far away
I spoke soft and pretended to cough
Like I didn't care either way
Never knew I could get my heart broken in so many ways

And the last time I saw her
Standing in the pouring rain
Hair a little shorter
But everything else looked the same
I could've told her that I adored her
She could've said she felt the same way
But we just smiled cause sometimes words
Aren't the right words to say
We just smiled cause sometimes words
Aren't the right words to say
