I sat by the ocean and drank the potion, baby, to erase you.
Face down in the boulevard, yet I couldn’t face you.
There ain’t no use in crying, it doesn’t change anything,
So baby, what good does it do?
Your friends, they all sympathize
Maybe I don’t need them too.

And I could have been your one and only,
Instead I'm the lonely one.
You, me, and a lie.
Silence is closer,
We’re passing ships in the night.

There’s nowhere to run away.
Said, “Boy if you want love, you’ll have to go and find it with someone new.”
Do you know who you really are? Are you sure it’s really you?
Lies are a funny thing;
They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you.
Time wounds all the heals, as we fade out of view.

And I could have been your one and only,
Instead I'm the lonely one.
You, me, and a lie.
Silence is closer.
We’re passing ships in the night.

You, me, and a lie.
Silence is closer,
We’re passing ships in the night.
End to the night, left with nowhere to hide.

Closer and closer,
We’re crashing ships in the night.
