The video for Passenger’s “Let Her Go” is a video that shows all the preparation the band puts in before performing. Therefore, I decided to tell you all about how this song make absolutely no sense. Starting with the lyric “staring at the bottom of your glass, hoping one day you will make a dream last.” Ouch. A bit harsh, ya think? This is no longer a love song, but rather a song about how his bae is an alcoholic and has no potential. Next the lyrics: “…well you see her when you fall asleep, but never to touch and never to keep” sound as if the guy is disgusted by her! You sleep with her, but will not touch nor keep her. HA! Love it. The ending is the best, guys. “And you let her go”…perfect ending! So this is a break up song now, no longer that sappy business every other indie band writes. Twerk team, do NOT sing this to your bae of the week or play this at a wedding.
