  • Lyrics
  • An acoustic guitar-led song, this is accompanied by strings and augmented by some unusual instrumentation. However, Passenger still prefers to take a more stripped-down approach to live performances. "What I love is when I play gigs it's just me and a guitar – very simple, very direct and intimate, and you hear every lyric and you hear every detail," he explained to American Songwriter. 'I think with an album, I love to do the opposite. I love to arrange these songs out, make them big, make them bold and, like you say, quite orchestral."
