"Passing By" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Sophie Alexandra Jessica Barker....
Don't think you love me
Confusion settling in
I don't think I'll be staying
Around here, anymore

There's no question that I love you
But I'm living in my own time
And here I am debating
Whether I'm wrong, or right

Who am I
To make a judgment of
Your life
I'm only
Passing by
Passing by

All the promises I gave you
Helped me to survive
And all the times I wished you'd save me
You were the love of my life

Who am I
To make a judgment of
Your life
I'm only
Passing by
Passing by

Who am I
To make a judgment of
Your life
I'm only
Passing by
Passing by

Who am I
To make a judgment of
Your life
I'm only
Passing by
Passing by

I'm only passing by

    General CommentThe words and melody of this song beautifully touches upon a rather delicate topic - a characteristic (perhaps, flaw) of humans. We tend to judge everyone and every situation, consciously or unconsciously; the worst judgments tend to be placed on people we love the most. People who we hold on a higher level, to higher expectations.

    But who are we to judge? What capacity do we have to affect the ones we love, and to change them to act the way we expect them to act? Expect may be a poor word choice... perhaps, it's just a wish. Unfortunately, what we want from others, especially the ones we love the most - sometimes, that want just can't be satisfied. Only they can live their lives. Who are we to judge how someone else lives, just because it conflicts with our wants, our views?

    In the end, we're only passing by. There's only so much we can expect, only so much we can do; there's an unfortunate, extreme sense of hopelessness
