Ships In The Night by Mat Kearney
-----------------------------------------------------

Capo 7



Intro/chorus

                  Bm
Like ships in the night
                    G
You keep passing me by
             D
Just wasting time
          A
Trying to prove who's right
          Bm                     G
And if it all goes crashing into the sea
            D
If its just you and me
          A
Trying to find the light



Verse 1

                  Bm
Like ships in the night letting cannonballs fly
             G
Say what you mean and it turns to a fight
          D
Fists fly from my mouth as it turns south
                A
You're down the driveway

I'm on the couch
             Bm
Chasing your dreams since the violent fifth grade
          G
Trying to believe in your silent own way
                D
'Cause we'll be okay, I'm not going away
                    A
Like you watched at fourteen as it went down the drain
          Bm
Your pops stayed the same and your moms moved away
                G
How many of our parents seem to make it anyway
           D
We're just fumbling through the gray
                 A
Trying to find a heart that's not walking away




Pre-Chorus

         Bm
Turn the lights down low
           G
Walk these halls alone
       D
We can feel so far
      A
From so close




Chorus

                  Bm
Like ships in the night
                    G
You keep passing me by
             D
Just wasting time
          A
Trying to prove who's right
          Bm                     G
And if it all goes crashing into the sea
            D
If its just you and me
          A
Trying to find the light
                  Bm
Like ships in the night
             G
You're passing me by
             D
You're passing me by
              A
Like ships in the night




Verse 2

           Bm
I'm at the airport waitin' on the second plane
       G
Had to pack, you had cramps,
                            D
And I was late heading to a red carpet

They wont know my name
          A
Riding in silence

All that we wanna say
         Bm
'Bout to board when you call on the phone
            G
You say I'm sorry I'll be waitin' at home
                 D
Feels like we're burning this out on our own
                   A
Trying to find our way down a road we don't know




Bridge[x2]

Bm, G, D, A [x2]

Bm                   G
I'm gonna find my way
                    D           A
Back to your side (Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh)
