"Passenger" as written by and Ryan Tedder....
I saw your face, stuck in a crowd
Silently screaming out loud
I felt the beat echo your heart
Throw me a line 'cause it's too far

All that you want, all that you see
All that you thought that you believe

Is it enough? Do you think it's too much?
You say you only trust what you can touch

All you got to do is reach out for it

All that you want
Is standing right in front of you
All that you need
Is love.
All that you want
Is standing right in front of you
All that you need
Is love.

Up to the ledge, put out my hands
Scared to the bones of where I'd land
Trade in my fears, trade in my thoughts
They disappear behind your walls

All that I want, all that I need
All that I thought I believed
Was it enough? Sure not too much?
Now you're the only thing that I can trust

All I got to do is reach out for it

All that you want
Is standing right in front of you
All that you need
Is love.
All that you want
Is standing right in front of you
All that you need
Is love.

It's all for you
It's all for you

    My InterpretationThe first verse of the song is Ryan Tedder talking, and the second verse is the other person replying. "Do you think it's too much?" "You're not too much."

    To me, it's about someone who needed help in a situation, and when the narrator helped them, everything seemed to go away "traded my fears, traded my faults, they disappeared behind your walls". The first part of the second verse sounds suicidal too, so maybe it has some suicide meaning too.

    I've never really had a super clear understanding of what this song is about.
