Rachel Platten – 1,000 Ships lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'd go beyond our fighting borders
If you needed that from me
And I'd march with decorated soldiers
To get your pretty eyes to see
Well I would bring your morning coffee
Then I'd wrap you up in me
I'd kiss your belly and your shoulders
Cover blankets on our feet
So slow down there's some kind of blessing here
But you have missed your cue

[Chorus]
So keep your eyes set on the horizon
On the line where blue meets blue
And I bet that silver lining
Well I know it'd find you soon
Cause I have sailed a 1000 ships to you
But my messages don't seem to make it through

[Verse 2]
Well I would bring your morning coffee
Then I'd wrap you up in me (me)
Deedeedee
I'd kiss your belly and your shoulders
Cover blankets on our feet
But slow down there's some sort of blessing here
But you've gone and missed your cue

[Chorus]
So keep your eyes set on the horizon
On the line where blue meets blue
And I bet that silver lining
Well I know it'll find you soon
Cause I have sailed a 1000 ships to you
But my messages don't seem to make it through

[Interlude]
Well money and fame they are a losing game
And I know those pretty actresses are calling your name
But I'll be here waiting, I'll always be the same
If you'd let me in again

[Bridge]
Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha

Dadadadadada

Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha
Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha

[Chorus]
So keep your eyes set on the horizon
On the line where blue meets blue
And I bet that silver lining
Well I know it'll find you soon
Keep your eyes set on the horizon
On the line where blue meets blue
And I bet that silver lining
Well I know it'll find you soon
Cause I have sailed a 1000 ships to you
But my messages don't seem to make it through

[Outro]
Hahahahahaha
Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha
Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha
Dadadadadada
Hahahahahaha

    Where blue meets blue could mean where the ocean meets the sky, just another way of saying the horizon. And the phrase every cloud has a silver lining is just a way to say that every situation, no matter how cloudy/bad it may seem, there's always a bit of good that can come from it, a silver lining. So keep your eyes open and out on the horizon, you're bound to find the good in whatever you're going through.
    The missed your cue part could be that she's saying slow down, you're moving so fast through life that you don't realize that I'd do anything for you, you've missed your cue to come in and make what could be a great thing happen.

    I'm trying to find out what is meant by "so keep your eyes on the horizon, on the line where blue meets blue and i'd bet that silver lining, well i know it'll find you soon" it concerns me and I'd like to understand. The rest seems fairly straight forward, though it is not completely clear about the "missed your cue". Someone? Anyone got an idea or a place to find out? Thanks and blessings to all -may all your desires be fulfilled. C
