Passenger - Scare Away the Dark

I recently purchased Passenger's Whispers album and the song Scare Away the Dark really spoke to me. We're all so "screen-obsessed" these days and this song is a reminder to get away and live in the moment.

He performed it on the Today Show this morning and it reminded me that I wanted to share it with you:



well sing
sing at the top of your voice
and love without fear in your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark

we wish our weekdays away
spend our weekends in bed
we drink ourselves stupid
and work ourselves dead
and all just because
that’s what mum and dad said we should do
but we should run through the forests

we should swim in the streams
we should laugh we should cry
we should love we should dream
we should stare at the stars

and not just at screens
you should hear what i’m saying
and know what it means to sing

sing at the top of your voice
and love without fear in your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark

well we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter
we wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters
we want something more not just nasty and bitter
we want something real not just hashtags and twitter
it’s the meaning of life and it’s streamed live on youtube
but i bet gangnam style would still get more views
and we’re scared of drowning and flyers and shooters
but we’re all slowly dying in front of fucking computers so sing

sing at the top of your voice now
oh and love without fear in your heart
can you feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
well sing

sing at the top of your voice
and love without fear in your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark
