lyrics

please, don’t pass me by
please, don’t pass me by
this is better than right
and what does marriage mean
but a triple-tiered cake and some new things to break?
there’s a world of twinkling lights
and I want my share- all my body can bear

like smoking in reverse, you're twirling with me in the street
I turn away from you in sleep
and how can it be that third person has made me so weak?
I didn’t mean her to
I wanna share her with you

I need to touch your face
and examine your scars
to see where you’ve been
to know where you are
I know you’ve loved before
and I want them to watch us
as you yell out her name
it's your paper thin skin
and fresh perspiration
and your freckles like stars burn with
new inspiration

about

Landlord's Daughter Seattle, Washington

"The violin and guitar work on the album are impeccable..."
"The Passengers isn't a rock musical, per se, but the album certainly strikes that chord. In the vein of the Decemberists' The Hazards Of Love (though a little less gruesome), Landlord's Daughter are melodious, theatrical storytellers."
