"Pass Me By" as written by and Peter Warlock....
The words you never cared to say
I want to find a better place
When we rely on something more than this
And even as I try to sleep
I'm looking for my best friends
I'm tired of all the people
I'm seeing through
(The) same idea
It makes me wonder why I'm here
And even when I try to sleep
Still looking for my best friend
When we rely on something more than this
The words you never cared to say
"I want to start a family"
I'm tired of all the people
I'm seeing through
(The) same idea
It makes me wonder why I'm here
Watch me now
Try
Couldn't walk down that line
Just pass me by
Just passing by

    General CommentI think the song is about caring about someone but not getting what you want from the relationship like they are your friend and you want more, or they aren't as serious about the relationship as you are and you hate it.
