"Only Passing Through" as written by and Stephen Duffy....
Only passing through
Only passing through
We own this stuff briefly
You can't take it with you

You can't own the houses
That will outstand you
Only passing through
These houses and these streets

McAllister O’Farel
California Clay
Green Greenwich
Chestnut Bay

Only passing through
Only passing through
We own this stuff briefly
You can't take it with you

As I walked out this morning
Before the sun was up
Everyone was sleeping still
The curtains all were shut

The world I found was wealthy
More than we can afford
And all that is offered to us
A miserly reward

Only passing through
Only passing through
We own this stuff briefly
You can't take it with you
