Intro: Riff

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Gbm                         D                   A    E              
  And I'm gonna find my way back to your side 
Gbm                         D                   A    E
  And I'm gonna find my way back to your side 


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