Passenger – Travelling Alone

Passenger - Travelling Alone

Australian man, Scandinavian town
Kicking stones around the square
Sat for a while and carved out a smile
As if someone would care

Said I’m a long way from the gold coast
Furthest I’ve ever known
Oh and this just ain’t my home
It was my wife’s idea but she’s no longer here
She left me travelling alone

I never heard silence
Ring out like a bell
I never heard silence like last night in my expensive hotel
Well I’m loving a shadow, I’m trying to catch the rain
But I never heard silence, ’til I heard it today

She walked out of the hotel
I could still smell the smoke, of a burning heart left inside
She said men are all assholes and life’s a bad joke
She laughed and started to cry

See, 10 years with this man and a life time of plans
Oh and I loved him to his bones
Now I’ve lines on my skin and he’s traded me in
He left me travelling alone

Well, I never felt silence
Hit me like a train
I never felt silence
Like blood coursed through my veins
Well, I’m loving a shadow
And I’m trying to catch the rain
I never heard silence
‘Til I heard it today
I never felt silence
‘TiI I felt it today
