ships in the night lyrics – mat kearney

“ships in the night”

like ships in the night
you keep p*ssing me by
we’re 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 letting cannon b*lls fly
say what you mean and it turns to a fight
fist fly from my mouth as it turns south
you’re down the driveway… i’m on the couch

chasing your dreams since the violent 5th grade
trying to believe in your silent own way
cause we’ll be ok… i’m not going away
like you watched at fourteen as it went down the drain

and pops stayed the same and your moms moved away
how many of our parents seem to make it anyway
we’re just fumbling through the grey
trying 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 p*ssing me by
we’re 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 p*ssing me by
you’re p*ssing me by
like ships in the night

and i’m at the airport waiting on a second plane
had to pack and you had cramps and i was late
headed to a red carpet they won’t 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 we’re learning this out on our own
trying to find a way down the 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 p*ssing me by
we’re 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 p*ssing me by
you’re p*ssing me by
like ships in the night

and i’m gonna find my way
back to your side
and i’m gonna find my way
back to your side

like ships in the night
you keep p*ssing me by
we’re 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 p*ssing me by
you’re p*ssing me by
like ships in the night
