Whispers - Passenger


The Experience: Passenger's raspy yet gentle voice tells us an emptiness, similar to his top hit Let Her Go. He knows what he can do... just not what to do. "I don't know what I'm searching for. I should know by now... I don't know what my heart is for. I should know by now." Sincerely, a lot of us find ourselves in the same questions.



Music Video: Passenger sings softly, with split-screens of his music studio. 

The meaning of Passenger's single Whispers isn't wondering what he is, but who he is, and what he's for. Science tells us what this world is, biology tells us how we work. Nobody tells us "what my heart is for." Once upon a time people used to "know what I'm searching for." Society gave up on that a while ago. So society invented a storm of images and sounds to block off thinking. Passenger complains, "Everyone’s filling me up with noise, I don’t know what they’re talking about." His soft voice fades out, begging us to give him the answers to questions he can't even name. "All I need's a whisper, in a world that only shouts."

Ask Yourself: "I don't know what I'm searching for. I should know by now..." What am I missing?

LYRICS:
I’ve got open eyes,
And an open door,
But I don’t know what I’m searching for.
I should know by now.
See I’ve a big old heart,
This I know for sure,
But I don’t know what my love is for.
I should know by now.

Well, I’ll wait in line,
So I can wait some more,
‘Till I can’t remember what I came here for,
But I can’t leave now,
Cause I’ve a light that shines,
And a love so pure,
But I don’t know what to use them for.
I should know by now.

Well I spent my money,
I lost my friends,
I broke my mobile phone,
3AM and I’m drunk as hell,
And I’m dancing on my own,
Taxi-cabs ain’t stopping, 
And I don't know my way home,
Well it’s hard to find a reason, 
when all you have is doubts,
Hard to see inside yourself 
when can’t see your way out,
Hard to find an answers 
when the question won’t come out,

Everyone’s filling me up with noise, 
I don’t know what they’re talking about
Everyone’s filling me up with noise, 
I don’t know what they’re talking about
Everyone’s filling me up with noise, 
I don’t know what they’re talking about

You see all I need's a whisper 
In a world that only shouts.
