The band, Passenger, is one of the most amazing bands in existence. Out of a lot of beautiful and amazing songs they have produced until now, this one is utter honesty.
“Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low”
The quote that tells us that we never know what happiness is until we’ve suffered pain. We’ll never know what the gain is until we’ve gone through loss. This has been so beautifully explained in the song. The way the song begins and proceeds, it is amazing to learn the truth of life this way.
“Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last”
Hope is what keeps us alive. They say it so beautifully, once again, that we keep staring at the bottom of the glass and hope that we’d make a dream last one day. We often forget that when the glasses are full, we don’t take the effort to understand what it takes to make a dream last. By the time we realize it, the glass goes empty.
“Dreams come slow, and they go so fast”
Forming a dream, realizing it, getting passionate about it and falling in love with it is a such a huge process which we ascertain step by step. We often tend to forget that the moment we lose hope, we lose our strength, we lose the dream as well. The dreams take a lot of time to come to us, but not as much to lose. We are the reason why we lose our dreams.
“Same old empty feeling in your heart”
The happy vibes that we often feel are something that doesn’t come back to us the same way, but the pain, it repeats itself. It comes back over and over again to make us feel hollow, to make us feel empty. The feelings that return from the past, the same and old empty feelings are the reasons why we often lose hope.
“You dived too deep”
We often go beyond the boundaries for the ones we love. The boundaries that are meant to keep things happy. We often cross them to only regret them later. We do dive too deep looking for coins that exist only as deep as death and often kill something or the other in the process.
“Only know you love her when you let her go”
We are all aware that whatever we fall in love with. Is the one most special and important thing to us. Once we fall in love with someone, they are the ones meant to be. Another thing that true love teaches us is that whatever would we ever love, it would be real if only we are ready to give that up for its own benefit. Unless we are ready to give up our own happiness for someone else’s, we mustn’t think of ourselves as someone who knows what true love is.
