Passenger – David (Music Video) lyrics

Passenger cu piesa David (Music Video)

Versuri (lyrics):

Well I met him outside a hostel door
He said I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours
I know you think it’s shifty for a man in his fifties to be Sleeping in a hostel dorm
But I used to be a welder by trade
Used to work by the water where the ships get made
But no ship yard will take me now
My hands are too shaky now
Spend all my money before I get paid

And I said David, don’t you think it’s strange
While you were in a dark room
How the world went and changed
Looking in your eyes  
I think you know
David, we lost you
Lost you a long time ago

He leans his head against the hostel wall
Said I have an ex-wife that doesn’t hear me
And a kid that doesn’t call
And every month I’m … short
With my fu**ing child support
And the court says that I’m reckless and irresponsible

Cos it was never part of the plan
To be a middle aged man
To be sat outside a hostel, shaking strangers hands
But I’ve drunk away my wealth,
I’m a picture of bad health
And I’m a shadow of a shadow of a former self

And I said, David, don’t you think it’s strange
For years you’re walking and how the world went and changed
I hear it in your voice
I think you know
David we lost you,
Lost you a long time ago

And I said, David, don’t you think that it’s strange
While you were sleeping
How the world went and changed
Looking in your eyes,
I think you know
David, we lost you,
Lost you a long time ago
