Let Her Go is one of my favorites that All The little Lights has to offer. Hindsight is a beautiful thing and the ups, downs and quirks of it are wrapped up nicely in the insightful lyrics of this track, which is layered on the sounds of acoustic guitar and melancholy violin. This is one of those songs that really makes you contemplate life. And just when you start feeling the emotion of the lyrics, the next track Staring At The Stars strums joyfully into your ears along with some humorous and cheeky lyrics.
Passenger is a sublime artist, lyricist and musician and has all goodness wrapped up in one neat little package being All The Little Lights. Enjoy!

Passenger - All The Little Lights - Official Tour Video
All The Little Lights' is the much anticipated 3rd official album release from continent hopping troubadour Passenger (AKA Mike Rosenberg). Recorded at Linear studios in Sydney and co-prodcued by Chris Vallejo over the Autumn of 2011 this is an album that has the sound of an artist coming of age. As always, there's a certain element of the youthful Cat Stevens in the tenor of Mike's voice that tells you the emotions that drive his songs aren't very far beneath the surface. Recorded again in Sydney, for the new album, All The Little Lights, Mike was joined once again by a core Australian band that included Boy & Bear drummer Tim Hart, jazz bassist Cameron Undy, who also played on Flight Of The Crow, and keyboards player Stu Hunter, from Katie Noonan & The Captains. If there's a theme to be drawn from the album it's not just the usual stock-in-trade of the travelling troubadour - love - but the love of life itself. It's been a remarkable journey for Rosenberg, a journey that has inspired some of the finest songwriting you'll hear anywhere, whether on a street corner, a sweaty rock'n'roll room or a concert stage. Listening to him, whether on record or in performance, you can tell he's having the time of his life, and it's all there on his new album, All The Little Lights. And the most exciting this is you just know there's plenty more to come.

Passenger - All The Little Lights Lyrics | MetroLyrics
From the album "All The Little Lights" available on:
Lyrics: one went out at a bus stop in edinburgh one went out in an english park one went out in a nightclub when i was fifteen little lights in my heart
one went out when i lied to my mother said the cigarettes she found were not mine one went out within me now i smoke like a chimney its getting dark in this heart of mine its getting dark in this heart of mine
we're born with millions of little lights shining in the dark and they show us the way one lights up every time you feel love in your heart one dies when it moves away
one went out in the backstreets of manchester one went out in an airport in spain one went out i've no doubt when i grew up and moved out of the place where the boy used to play
one went out when uncle ben got his tumour we used to fish and i fish no more though he will not return i know one still burns on a fishing boat off the new jersey shore on a fishing boat off the new jersey shore
we're born with millions of little lights shining in the dark and they show us the way one lights up every time we feel love in our hearts one dies when it moves away
we're born with millions of little lights shiny in our hearts and they die along the way till we're old and we're cold and lying in the dark cos they'll all burn out one day they'll all burn out one day they'll all burn out one day they'll all burn out one day
