I sat by the ocean
And drank a potion
Baby, to erase you
Face down in the Boulevard
Yet I couldn't face you
There ain't no use in crying
It doesn't change anything
So baby, what good does it do
Your friends, they all sympathize
Maybe, I don't need them to

Imagine I'd be your one and only
Instead I'm the lonely one
You, me and a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night

There's nowhere to run away, said:
"Boy if you want love,
You'll have to go and find it with someone new"
"Do you know who you really are
Are you sure it's really you"
Lies are a funny thing
They slip through your fingertips
Because they never happened to you
Time wounds all the heals
As we fade out of view

Imagine I be your one and only
Instead I'm the only one
You me and a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night
You me and a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night

End to the night, left with nowhere to hide
Closer and closer
We're crashing ships in the night
