Things That Stop You Dreaming
Passenger Lyrics


I've got no money in my hands or my coat or my pocket
Wont get to space cos I haven't got a rocket
But I've air in my lungs
Eyes in my sockets
And a heart that beats
Like a tap that leaks
In the night when you haven't got a plumber who can stop it
Jack in a box without a key to lock it
Well this boat may sink but I'm not gonna rock it
Cos the sea doesn't know my name
Yeah the boat may sink but I'm not gonna rock it
Cos the sea doesn't know my name

Well if you can't get what you love
You learn to love the things you've got
If you can't be what you want
You learn to be the things you're not
If you can't get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

Well I've got no ones word and no bodies promise
Not a lot to show but this book full of sonnets
And my liver may be fucked but my heart is honest
And my word is true
Like the sky is blue
In the summer time when everybody gets on it
Warm our skins and get sunburnt from it
And our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains
Yeah our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains

Well if you can't get what you love
You learn to love the things you've got
If you can't be what you want
You learn to be the things you're not
If you can't get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

Well if you can't get what you love
You learn to love the things you've got
If you can't be what you want
You learn to be the things you're not
If you can't get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

I’ve got no money in my hands or my coat or my pocket
Wont get to space cos I haven’t got a rocket
But I’ve air in my lungs
Eyes in my sockets
And a heart that beats
Like a tap that leaks
In the night when you haven’t got a plumber who can stop it
Jack in a box without a key to lock it
Well this boat may sink but I’m not gonna rock it
Cos the sea doesn’t know my name
Yeah the boat may sink but I’m not gonna rock it
Cos the sea doesn’t know my name

Well if you can’t get what you love
You learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want
You learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

Well I’ve got no ones word and no bodies promise
Not a lot to show but this book full of sonnets
And my liver may be fucked but my heart is honest
And my word is true
Like the sky is blue
In the summer time when everybody gets on it
Warm our skins and get sunburnt from it
And our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains
Yeah our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains

Well if you can’t get what you love
You learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want
You learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

Well if you can’t get what you love
You learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want
You learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming
All the things that stop you dreaming

Ok I am over 60 but I love good music, and youngin's, this is good music!

Kurt Challoner

@Josh Hoehn agree with you there👍👍

Skeptic Epileptic

There's waaay too many "I am over 60', "I'm 83", "I'm 14", "I'm 77", comments on YouTube these days!

Personally, I'm starting to think that it's just a bunch of troll accounts!

XCISCO99

@xxxXxPANDABEARxXxxx you almost definitely have good taste in music in that case 👌🏻

Krobus Koffee

@Seal Or No Deal I love my taste in music cause i do like rap, and pop, but my dad had an actually good taste in music and introduced me into shit like this; and its fire. But legit i like something from every genre.

Seal Or No Deal

Josh Hoehn Agreed. I have never understood the point of mumble rap, but apparently it is good enough for the majority of my generation to like, I ask my peers about The Beatles and most of them respond with, ‘Who are the Beatles?’ God dude, it is so irritating having to talk with people who don’t have a clue what real musical prowess looks like.
