Testo della canzone A Thousand Matches (Passenger), tratta dall'album Whispers II (Deluxe Version)

A Thousand Matches - Passenger

Lying on a mattress cos my friend's crazy sister took my bed away
Sleeping she looked like an actress
In theory and in practice
I said there's got to be a better way
She said
You light a thousand matches
When you finally set fire well you run away
So why'd you go and do it
When you knew that you would go and i would stay

I hit the wall in frustration the conversation had been circling for days
She said
Don't take it out on him
For the wall has always been
Supportive in the best of ways
We were laughing and crying like mad men dying in the snow
For just one second it was funny
That she would have to stay and I would go

I said love you know
I love you so
And when you love someone
Well you've gotta let them know
She said
Nothings changed
I love you the same
But when you love someone sometimes
You've gotta let them go

She handed me a stone in the perfect shape of a heart
She said
I'm gonna take this home
For I know you'll only lose it somewhere after dark
In some faceless hotel room
Where you seem to lose everything you own
She didn't mean it how it sounded
What she meant was she would stay and i would go

And she said
Love you know
I love you so
And when you love someone
You've gotta let them know
I said
Nothings changed
I love you the same
But when you love someone sometimes
You've gotta let them go

Sometimes you tear it all apart
To see the wood from the trees
Sometimes you break your own heart
To set yourself free

I walked her to the station hesitation in our movement and our tone
And words finally left after realising how uncomfortable they'd grown
See what you want and what you need well they seldomly succeed to grow
We reluctantly agreed when you love some one you've gotta let them go
