Passion Play
William Fitzsimmons Lyrics


I should not have hid where my heart can't follow
'Cause this grace gets so far and too hard to swallow
I've been running from Saul, he's been giving chase
When I look in his eyes, all I see is my face

You're still on my back after all these years
Chasing me out of hell and my nice veneers
I don't know how you stand when you've got no floor
Or how you can breathe with your hands on boards

I just want to be not what I am today
I just want to be better than my friends might say
I just want a small part in your passions play

Do you hear when I call in the midst of wrong?
Do you hear these here words while I sing this song?
Are you caught up in me like I heard you say
Or just some big cashier that I'll have to pay?

Just want to be not what I am today
I just want to be better than my friends might say
I just want a small part in your passions play

I should not have hid where my heart can't follow
'cause this grace gets so far and too hard to swallow
I've been running from Saul, he's been giving chase;
When I look in his eyes, all I see is my face

You're still on my back after all these years
Chasing me out of hell and my nice veneers
I don't know how you stand when you've got no floor
Or how you can breathe with your hands on boards

I just want to be not what I am today
I just want to be better than my friends might say
I just want a small part in your passions play

Do you hear when I call in the midst of wrong?
Do you hear these here words while I sing this song?
Are you caught up in me like I heard you say
Or just some big cashier that I'll have to pay?

'Just want to be not what I am today
I just want to be better than my friends might say
I just want a small part in your passions play

I remember listening to this for the first time in my bedroom's closet, just sitting there and crying. It's been 6 years since I've listened to the song, but it's still as beautiful as ever

Maggie Tapa

Have just discovered this artist and I can't believe how amazing this song is

Brandon Miller

7 years and only 1M views. That's sad. Beautiful song. Makes me feel a way no song has.

mads mikkleson

Celeste B

Hang in there, listen to his later albums.

That def resonates with me. I agree with the theory that consumer capitalism is the cultural cause, because it intentionally fosters self-dissatisfaction and cultivates inferiority complexes in individuals from birth. But thinking about that crap is so abstract, it doesn't really resolve anything for you psychologically as an individual, in my experience. It's been difficult to accept how others have seen me. I'm 28. This has caused me a lot of problems - a lot of neuroses. But I'm finally stating to accept how others perceive me. There is a truth there. A tough truth, but a truth nonetheless.
