Passenger Seat
Passenger Seat

I roll the window down
And then begin to breathe in
The darkest country road
And the strong scent of evergreen
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.

I remember being in your car. With this song playing, I wonder now if I scoffed at the irony. I can still see the road curving through the trees and the mountains. I know where we were, I remember how you looked how you smelled how you smiled. You had driven for miles just so we could get out of town, to get away from everyone else. It was one of those days where it felt like it went on endlessly, and yet when it was done we wondered "Is that all, is it over already?"

I liked this description. You paint a vivid picture. It brought me back to the last time I was in the car and listening to music with someone special. We used to drive for hours. I had one knee tucked up to my chest, with the windows down. The air was coming in and it was like I couldn't breathe enough of it. I hope you find those feelings again.

Amazing song, fitting to be the background music to an everlasting memory and even so its a shame that it ends so abruptly on anything but a lasting note.

I was searching for a band called Passenger and landed on this post. First of all, I love "Passenger Seat" and the Transatlanticism album; the song truly transcends the typical love song and just encapsulates being with something you wholeheartedly love in a seemingly mundane, yet gorgeous moment in time. Secondly, I think what you had was a form of love. I will always remember lying in this high school baseball field staring at the stars with friends because it meant something real and happy to me. I'm not sure it's a complete love for those people, as we have grown apart in the last year or so, but kind of a recognition of life and happiness at its most pure form.

Sorry for posting on something so old, plus writing a small essay on it. I just really enjoyed what you have to say on this.
