Lyrics

Pass Me By by Ileana Burdine

I stop still in my tracks
I stop to listen
And wait with baited breath for the roar to die down
Not even my heart will make a sound
It's just a chance for me to look around
Not even my heart will make a sound

It's ridiculous to wonder
To think about the end
It's a momentary panic, nerves to settle down
Not even my breath will make a sound
It's a chance for me to check to look around
Not even my breath will make a sound

As the thirty seconds pass me by
All I can do is wonder why
I am so possessed to sit and cry about it
That my heart won't make a sound

I start to catch my breath
With a foolish grin to show
Or nerves with uncertainties that I didn't want to know and
Not even my heart will make a sound
Good fortune to have been there and I haven't gone
So my heart can make a sound

As the thirty seconds pass me by
All I can do is wonder why
I am so possessed to sit and cry about it
That my heart won't make a sound
