One Passenger
(Rick Springfield/Matt Bissonette)

Undecided over destiny or fate
Undivided under sentimental ways
Undelighted with the thought of happiness
Unrequited, love will lead to loneliness
And I'd like to meet you all alone to ask you why
Why you'd change a worm into a butterfly

When I ride, falling forward on the way 
I'm just one passenger aboard this train
When I find the silver lining turns to gray
I'm just one passenger aboard this train

I'm recognizing all that's true and all that's fake
Wrecking bodies, put a flower in its place
Soul surviving, in a pool of emptiness
All this trying, couldn't fill me any less

And I'd love to see you tell me as I wonder why
How you'd chang this worm into a butterfly
When I fly, flying faster all the way
I'm just one passenger aboard this train

When I find the silver lining breaks away
I'm just one passenger aboard this train

When I die falling through a somber rain
I'm just one passenger aboard this train

Will I try holding on to yesterday
I'm just one passenger aboard this train
Will I find the silver lining fades away
I'm just one passenger aboard this train
We're all just passengers aboard this train

Undecided, Undivided
I'm just one passenger aboard this train.

Rick says: One Passenger is kind of a conversation with God, or what you believe is God in your life.  Basically it's a "why, why are we here" kind of a question in a pop song form. - Amazon.com promo video

 

According to US

I donít like the way this song starts out. At. All. Itís too fast as to how he proceeds into the actual singing/lyrics and I donít like that part about it. Also, I donít really care for the way he puts emphasis on certain words.

Other than that, I like the lyrics and the melody once it starts moving along. Enjoyable enough not to skip, but not a favorite. My favorite lyric is about turning this worm into a butterfly. Another wonderfully written song. - Amy L
