Like two ships in the night
We're colliding and sinking
Into the black sea of our love
We never get it past
The port of logical thinking
Lost outta the stars up above

Now my heart is a mess
Words sing 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
It's not matching 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 into goddamn misery

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 heart soaring
But now it's falling like snow

And like two ships in the night
We're colliding and sinking
Into the black sea of our love
We never get it past
The port of logical thinking
Lost outta the stars up above

Now my heart is a mess
Words sing 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

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 heart soaring
But now it's falling like snow

Now it's falling like snow
Now it's falling like snow
And now it's falling like snow
