Death Cab For Cutie - Passenger Seat (Demo) Lyrics

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.

Then looking upwards
I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.

"Do they collide?"
I ask and you smile.
With my feet on the dash
The world doesn't matter.

If you feel embarrassed then I'll be your pride
If you need directions I'll be the guide.
For all time.
For all time.

Death Cab For Cutie Passenger Seat (Demo) Comments
  1. Joseph Garcia

    Ben Gibbard is one of the best lyricists I've ever heard personally and I've heard alot. His word play is amazing and is just so poetic. Not many lyricist I know that can compete with him. His lyricism rivals that of a Bob Dylan's for sure, such an underrated talent it's a shame. Transatlanticism is such an amazing album, this and so many others are gems on this album.

  2. Anthony Solinas

    I so love this band at the moment, it's like someone putting their hand on my shoulder, we'll get through this. Dealing with my father in laws cancer is difficult, but this band is helping me through it, writing beautiful songs like this one. Thank you DCFC.

  3. Akira Yamaoka

    Only someone like Ben Gibbard can take a 10 second moment in time and turn it into a 3:41 long journey.

    The day my brother passed away, I got the news while driving. I felt like something was wrong in the world, like something fell out of place. On my way to work I kept feeling this strange feeling like I forgot something. I got a call as I was pulling into work, they told me you were ok and you would be alright. I rushed home as fast as I can but half way down the road I felt a loss of breath I felt my brothers last breath as if a piece was taken from me, as if I gained a piece of him. This song came on, and I felt him in my passenger seat. I will forever enjoy this work of art, Thank you Death cab for cutie. May you Rest in peace Obryan! May justice be served!

    i spent the best summers of my life riding in the passenger seat of the most amazing woman i ever met and talking about life. looking at the stars with nothing above us in her shitty convertible lebaron. i even knew it back then that those were the best times of my life. told her that over and over again. she died in 2008 driving that car. i cant listen to this song without crying but i keep doing it anyway to always hold that memory. i feel for your loss. the pain is universal. i miss you Nikki.

    “I’ll be your guide” but no one is guiding me in life that line gets me so sad and all I feel is sadness but his voice on that line is so amazing

    Jeremy Rearick

    Google Plays’s Indie Sleep Playlist brought me here. I swear, it took a while for me to find out what this song was because it’s always put me right to sleep before I could realize how nice it was and look at the song title and artist.

  13. Shyanne Vasquez

    So at first I thought this song was weird but now I think it is gorgeous. That piano, the vocals, the deep and melancholy lyrics… Truly why people are fans of this band. I don’t care if I’m a hipster.… LOL

    The More I listen To his songs the More I feel like he was a cityboy Who had a romance with a countrygirl. I had such romance and these songs cut close To the bone for me. Songs such as this, summer skin, we looked like giants and many other songs are amazingly similiar of what i experienced in the summer of 2013

    Cory Wilson

    We left our love in our summer skin

  16. David Giles

    Always wished that this was the last song on the album

  17. Jelly Bean

    Even as the tears flow down my face I cant help, but feel free when listening to this..

  18. Kelly Carr

    It makes me think of being in my grand parents car as a kid feeling safe and loved.

    "With my feet on the dash the world doesn't matter." Mom always asked me to put my feet down but nothing is like road trips with her ❤️

    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
    then looking upwards
    I strain my eyes and try
    to tell the difference between
    shooting stars and satellites
    from the passenger seat as you are driving me home
    do they collide
    I ask and you smile
    with my feet on the dash
    the world doesn't matter
    when you feel embarrassed
    then I'll be your pride
    when you need directions
    then I'll be the guide
    for all time
    for all time

    Wow, I like this song more than "Transatlanticism". I never thought another Death Cab for Cutie song could touch me as strongly.

    Anthony Solinas

    A band hasn't touched me this hard in a long time. Their music and lyrics are so comforting
