Song Lyric Sunday – Pass Slowly by Seether

I’m not a huge video person. I didn’t really plan it that way. I just never even think to pull up a video to a song. Probably because YouTube drives me crazy. I wish it was easier to find the “official” video to songs, but you usually have to wade through a bunch of posts before locating it; or you never actually do, which probably means the band didn’t post one.

Anyway, my point is, I had two different songs picked out for today and I was going to sit down and pick one by watching the video. I honestly knew the songs were on the slow side and the lyrics were poignant, but watching the videos had me sobbing like a baby and I’m still torn about which one to post. I suppose that means that you’ll be crying with me for two weeks in a row because the other one is going up next Sunday.

So, rolling the dice, you’re getting Pass Slowly by Seether. Yet another band I have seen with Adelle live in concert, although I have to say that I didn’t much enjoy them live. It didn’t make me like them any less, though. I still love their music and this song gets me every time, even without the video.

I honestly thought of a lover and how if you don’t see them very often, you want them to pass slowly when they are here so you can eek out every ounce of happiness that is possible before they leave again.

I love all the lyrics to this song, so nothing to point out as a favorite line.

I hope you brought some Kleenex for this installment of Song Lyric Sunday. As always, feel free to read the rules below and post your own. Everyone is welcome here.

Pass Slowly by Seether
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

I think it’s time for a change
Cause things feel out of touch
And I watch you walk away, again

Well this feels like too much
(Can you take it away?)
And things won’t go my way
Now I’ll have to fade away, my friend

So pass slowly
And carry me down
And render me lonely
When you’re not around

I need to shake off this pain
But courage takes too much
So I have to walk away, again

Oh God I miss your touch
(Can you take it away?)
The way that you keep me safe
I won’t let you fade away, my friend

So pass slowly
And carry me down
Remember me only
When you’re not around

Oh yea, can’t you stay awhile longer?
Oh yea, won’t you stay?
God please stay
And pass slowly
(It’s time for a change)
And whittle me down
(Cause things feel out of touch)
And render me lonely
(I’ll watch you walk away, again)
When you’re not around

So pass slowly
(This feels like too much)
And let me down easy
(And things won’t go my way)
Render me lonely
(I’ll have to fade away, my friend)
When you’re not around

  2. Oh I’m so jealous you saw them live :-). I usually look that I sign up to a bands or singers YouTube channel. There itsceasier to find if they have an official video published. Have a great day
