Mat Kearney – Ships In The Night lyrics

Like ships in the night, you keep passing me by.
Just wasting time.
Trying to find who's right.
And if it all goes crashing into the sea, if it's just you and me.
Trying to find the light.

Like ships in the night.
Letting cannonballs fly.
Say what you mean and it turns to a fight.
Fists fly from my mouth as it turns south.
You're down the driveway and I'm on the couch.
Chasing your dreams since the violent fifth grade.
Trying to believe in your silent own way.
'Cause we'll be okay, I'm not going away.
Like you watched at 14 as it went down the drain.
And pops stayed the same and your mom's moved away.
How many of our parents seem to make it anyway?
Just fumbling through the gray, trying to find a heart that's not walking away.

Turn the lights down low, walk these halls alone.
We can feel so far, from so close.

Like ships in the night, you keep passing me by.
Just wasting time.
Trying to prove who's right.
And if it all goes crashing into the sea if it's just you and me.
Trying to find the light.
Like ships in the night, you're passing me by.
Passing me by, like ships in the night.

I'm at the airport waiting on a second plane.
Had to pack and you had cramps and I was late.
Headed to a read carpet, they wont know my name.
Riding in silence, all that we wanna say.
About to board when you call on the phone.
You say, "I'm sorry I'll be waiting at home."
Feels like were learning this out on our own.
Trying to find our way down a road we don't know.

Turn the lights down low, walk these halls alone.
We can feel so far, from so close.

Like ships in the night, you keep passing me by.
Just wasting time.
Trying to prove who's right.
And if it all goes crashing into the sea, if it's just you and me.
Trying to find the light.
Like ships in the night, you're passing me by.
Passing me by, like ships in the night.

And I'm gonna find my way.
Back to your side.
Whoa-oh-oh-oh.
Whoa-oh-oh-oh.
And I'm gonna find my way.
Back to your side.
Oh-oh-oh-oh.
Oh-oh-oh-oh.

Like ships in the night, you keep passing me by.
Just wasting time.
Trying to prove who's right.
And if it all goes crashing in to the sea, if it's just you and me.
Trying to find the light.
Like ships in the night.
You're passing me by, passing me by.
Like ships in the night.
