    Like ships in the night
    You keep passing 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 balls 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 and 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 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

    Like ships in the night
    You keep passing 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 passing me by, you're passing 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

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

    Like ships in the night
    You keep passing 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 passing me by
    You're passing me by
    Like ships in the night

    I'm gonna find my way back to your side (X2)

    Like ships in the night
    You keep passing 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 passing me by
    You're passing me by
    Like ships in the night
