Lyrics

Like two ships in the night we’re colliding and sinking
Into the black sea of our love
We navigated past the point of logical thinking
Lost sight of the stars up above

Now my heart is a mess, murder scene in my chest
Not a clue how you got through the door
But I’m glad that you came, no regret and no shame
As I’m lying here dead on the floor

I took a blind leap of faith that’s now crashing and burning
With my heart fast asleep in your bed
I got on the ground safe but with my insides turning
And a picture of you in my head

As I wandered away deep in shock and dismay
In a daze just repeating your name
Well, the fact of the matter is both our hearts shatter way too goddamn easily…

When you asked me if I’d stay forever guess you meant just for the week
We felt so good together it was way too good to be
When I left you there early that morning, my darling
I told you that I’d miss you so
I got on that plane with my soaring but now it’s falling like snow

Like two ships in the night we’re colliding and sinking
Into the black sea of our love
We navigated past the point of logical thinking
Lost sight of the stars up above

Now my heart is a mess, murder scene in my chest
Now a clue how you got through the door
But I’m glad that you came, no regret and no shame
As I’m lying here dead on the floor

When you asked me if I’d stay forever guess you meant just for the week
We felt so good together it was way too good to be
When I left you there early that morning, my darling
I told you that I’d miss you so
I got on that plane with my soaring but now it’s falling like snow
Now it’s falling like snow
