Tuesday at 2 AM long after you said goodnight
I put the coffee on, strong and I bought me some time
The roses you left me were dead on the desk to my right
A subtle reminder that nothing's designed to survive

Love overcome is a battle half won
The view from both sides of the gun

I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots,
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
'Cause it's time I untied all the knots
'Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
Well that's a ship in the dock

The wind's packing up and I'm looking above for a sign
Your photograph hanging a moment just clinging to life
But I've seen the top of those trees on the opposite side
And if the grass isn't greener
Then I'll know at least that I tried

Cause I won't let myself live in this world of what ifs
But it don't get much harder than this

I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots,
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
'Cause it's time I untied all the knots
'Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
That's a ship in the dock

And I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots,
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
'Cause it's time I untied all the knots
'Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
That's a ship in the dock

I know what I'm not
And that's a ship in the dock
