[Intro]

                   Em
Like ships in the night, 
                    C
you keep passing me by
                    G
We're just wasting time
            D
Trying to prove who's right
          Em                      C
And if it all goes crashing into the sea,
             G                     D
If its just you and me trying to find the light.


[Verse 1]

                   Em
Like ships in the night letting cannon balls flying,
              C
Say what you mean and turn to a fight 
             G
And fists fly from my mouth, it turns south, 
               D
you're down the driveway and I'm on the couch
         Em
Chasing dreams since the violent 5th grade,
            C
Trying to believe in your silent own way
               G
Cause we'll be okay, I'm not going away
                         D
like you watching at fourteen as it went down the drain
                     Em
And pops stayed the same, and your moms moved away
                 C
How many of our parents seemed to make it anyway?
            G
We're just fumbling through the grey,
               D
Trying find a heart that's not walking away.


[Pre-Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

                   Em
Like ships in the night, 
                    C
you keep passing me by
                    G
We're just wasting time
            D
Trying to prove who's right
          Em                      C
And if it all goes crashing into the sea,
             G                     D
If its just you and me trying to find the light.
                     Em
Like ships in the night,
                      C
you keep passing me by.
                      G
You keep passing me by,
                      D
like ships in the night.


[Verse 2]

                 Em
And I'm at the airport waiting on a second plane,
        C
Had to pack, you had cramps and I was late
             G
Headed to a red carpet, they won't know my name
           D
Riding in silence all that we wanna say
          Em
About to board when you call on the phone
                C
You said, "I'm sorry I'll be waiting at home."
                  G
Feels like we're learning this out on our own
                   D
Trying to find our way down road we don't know.


[Pre-Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

                   Em
Like ships in the night, 
                    C
you keep passing me by
                    G
We're just wasting time
            D
Trying to prove who's right
          Em                      C
And if it all goes crashing into the sea,
             G                     D
If its just you and me trying to find the light.
                     Em
Like ships in the night,
                      C
you keep passing me by.
                      G
You keep passing me by,
                      D
like ships in the night.


[Bridge]

Em                         C                   G    D              
  And I'm gonna find my way back to your side 
Em                         C                   G    D
  And I'm gonna find my way back to your side 


[Chorus]

                   Em
Like ships in the night, 
                    C
you keep passing me by
                    G
We're just wasting time
            D
Trying to prove who's right
          Em                      C
And if it all goes crashing into the sea,
             G                     D
If its just you and me trying to find the light.
                     Em
Like ships in the night,
                      C
you keep passing me by.
                      G
You keep passing me by,
                      D
like ships in the night.
