The Town Pants – Ships Made Of Wood lyrics

I won't lead you won't follow
Come on up here and stand beside me
We'll just keep doing what we're doing
And the world will come around you'll see
Ain't no use in worrying about
How much more work we can do
And I know if I'm the last one standing
I can look around and I'll see you

There are ships made of wood
And there are ships that sail the sea
But the best ship is the friendship
That there is 'tween you and me
Its sailed through stormy weather
Navigated foreign seas
And you know if you're the last one standing
You can look around and you'll see me

I'm happy where I am these days
Still frustrated in so many ways
I know a breeze is blowing
But I feel no movement for so many days
I can see the stars
But how long from here to there I can't say
But I can take some solace
Knowing I'll have you to talk to along the way


Sometimes we all forget
It's the journey and not the destination
That makes all the difference
When you finally pull into the last station
Its not what you do it's who you know
And I am very glad that I know you
Its been my mistake not to
But I hope it's not to late for me to show you
