Passenger

I wanted to make you stronger
Now I just want to feel strong
I wanted to make it better than this
Now it feels all wrong

I wanted you to be a mother
I wanted our daughters and sons
I wanted to make a life for them
Now they are all gone

I wanted to keep us together
Now I am dying alone
I wanted to make it longer than this
The ships aren’t sailing home

I wanted to taste the water
I wanted my heart to feel numb
I wanted the break to wash over this
Now the dark has come
