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 passing me by
You passing me by
Like ships in the night

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, 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 watching at fourteen as it went down the drain
Your 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 gray
Trying to find a heart that’s not walking away

I turn the lights down low
Walk these halls alone
We can feel so far
From so close

I’m at the airport waiting on the second plane
Had to pack you had cramps and I was late
Heading to a red carpet, they wont know my name
Riding in silence, all that we wanna say
Bout 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 our way down a road we don’t know

And I’m gonna find my way
Back to your side
And I’m gonna find my way
Back to your side
