about

The first track on our debut Memories EP, entitled “Reruns,” is intentionally written from a first-person perspective using “we.” The whole audience is included from the get-go: “We need a night with the ones we love, let’s get out, get out, get out, and hit the city.” The lyrics simply invite the crowd to take it easy and enjoy a night with good friends, which is hopefully the experience each one will take away from a show with The Passport. Then, when it is appropriate, a different light can be cast lyrically, such as in our song “Telegram,” which talks of moving on from a heartbreak. The protagonist promises to “send my love in a telegram, send it on the wire. Played my heart like a Theremin, say that I’m a liar, but you’re playing with fire, baby.” The key thing about the message of each song is that it has a time and a place. Overall, we aim to be realistic and hopeful with our songs, to spotlight those greatest elements of being human.

Track Name: Reruns
We need a night with the ones we love
Let’s get out, get out, get out
And hit the city
‘Cause we’re the type who could do too much
Who could work without a break

In my dad’s van
Hit the theatre

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
It’s all about the reruns
So live and let it play again

We need a night where it all goes black
‘Cause we’re going, going, going too fast
There’s a place where they know our names
And I’m dying to go back
Pile in, yeah
When we get there
Seen the movie
But we don’t care
We’re gonna remember the good times
We’re gonna remember the good nights

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
It’s all about the reruns
Come on, come on
Come on, come on

Track Name: I'm With You
We’ve come so close to calling it off
I’ll admit I’ve had my second thoughts
Bend in the road don’t look the same
When a headlight’s out and I see your name
Light up my cell phone
I know I shouldn’t but I gotta know
What’s on your mind

So tell me about it
I’m with you
Even when you’re miles away
Tell me about it
I’m with you
You know I’m always with you baby

We’ve come a long way since the start
Even though the road is winding
I’ll find my way to where you are
So take your time, and tell me
What’s on your mind

Tell me about it
I’m with you
Even when you’re miles away
Tell me about it
I’m with you
You know I’m always with you baby

The small things
All the little victories
I hear your voice and then I’m home


Tell me about it
I’m with you
Even when you’re miles away
Tell me about it
I’m with you
You know I’m always with you baby
Track Name: Running Out
Left you in a hurry but I don’t wanna bury
The time we spent looking better
For each other in the mirror
Woa-oh
Seven in the morning
Have you seen my wallet
I don’t know
How do you do it
Better find it, where’d you leave it

Are we losing track of the little things ‘Cause I’m
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock it
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock me out

Woa-oh oh woah oh
Woa-oh oh woah oh

Sipping on a latte
Running through the replay
Better days when we didn’t ever
Have to think about it
Woa-oh
Roll to the runway
Put away your cell phone
I love you
But I know that I’ll forget it
Never send it
Woa-oh

Are we losing track of the little things

‘Cause I’m
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock it
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock me out

Woa-oh oh woah oh
Woa-oh oh woah oh

The little things are the big things
The little things are the big things
The little things are the big things
And I don’t wanna forget

Oh oh oh oh No-oh-oh
And I don’t wanna forget
And I don’t wanna forget
Oh oh oh oh No-oh-oh
And I don’t wanna forget
No-oh

I’m running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock it
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock me out
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock it
Running out of the door without
Keys in my pocket
Praying you don’t lock me out

Woa-oh oh woah oh
Woa-oh oh woah oh
Track Name: Trigger
I ain’t seen a lot of peace in the days I’ve traveled
Woah, Woah
I’ve got blood on my teeth from the latest battle
Woah, Woah
And I swore to you I’d never hold another gun
But my finger’s on the trigger
And I’m coming undone
I swore to you
I’d never do what I done

Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
I’m trying
And you know I’ve fallen down
Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
To balance my promises
Balance my promises without falling down

I ain’t seen a lot of hope in the days I’ve traveled
Living on the edge of a shotgun barrel
And I swore to you I’d never go too far
But the bullet’s in the chamber
In the back of my car
I swore to you
I’d never go this far

Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
I’m trying
And you know I’ve fallen down
Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
To balance my promises
Balance my promises without falling down

Been looking back over my shoulder
But now I’m laying my arms down

Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
I’m trying
And you know I’ve fallen down
Woah
Baby, don’t you know I’m trying
To balance my promises
Balance my promises
Balance my promises
Balance my promises without falling down
Track Name: Telegram
I been writing letters
You never check your mailbox
Trying to forget ya
Getting tired of the ticking clocks
And I been running ‘round
The edges of my teenage town
Every day a little older
But I’m never getting over
The way you played around
You think I need you You think I need you
You think I need you

Send my love in a telegram
Send it on the wire
Played my heart like a theremin
Say that I’m a liar
But you’re playing with fire, baby

I been growing tired
Of going nowhere fast
Packing up my suitcase
And never looking back
You and I were never right
And I should’ve known
You’re cold to the touch
With a heart of stone

You think I need you You think I need you
You think I need you

Send my love in a telegram
Send it on the wire
Played my heart like a theremin
Say that I’m a liar
But you’re playing with fire, baby

Send my love in a telegram
Send it on the wire
Played my heart like a theremin
Say that I’m a liar
But you’re playing with fire, baby
Send my love in a telegram
Send it on the wire
Played my heart like a theremin
Say that I’m a liar
But you’re playing with fire, baby
