Music: Ships in the Night
Artist: Ryan Montbleau
Record: Woodstock Sessions

Summer passed by before I could bat an eye
Tequila sunsets and bleak sunrises
There are no more long days now, no more prize fighting
I’ll even give up on the drinking, just please no more surprises
I see her wave to me, covered it from A to Z
With a look so heavenly that she’s no longer giving me

Ships pass by outside the window in my room
They only know where they’ve been and where they’re going to
They pass so mightily, steady in their gaze
They pass by each other without so much as a wave
Ships in the night are we, convinced we’re gonna be
Reunited come the day

My brother, how you been while I’ve been blinded by my own
Worries and stories and this sense that I’m alone
Heaven zips by a million more ships in the night
And and trillion tons of gases from a billion silly asses
And I still pray for the masses as we fight the bloody fight
But bodies cannot stop these jacked up, gakked up ships in the night

And I reach out in the darkness for some body I might hold
I reach out to the cosmos by staring at my phone
I reach a state of ecstasy, I return to despair
I remain educated, well-informed, and unaware
But my sister, my sister, I swear that I am good
Reach your arms around me and tell me that I’m understood

I can’t believe the things for which I'm forced to take a stand
I can’t believe that I’m the problem, not the plan
I can’t believe that we elected that man
Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can, yes I can
Ships in the night are we, miss other entirely
From cradle to the grave without so much as a wave

And my my, hey hey, looks like the sky is falling down
No, it's my time, it's your time, it's all just coming 'round
Run up the mountain and hide out while you can
There's a storm coming full of lonely disaffected angry men
And father time knows the way the cancer grows inside of me
And who will hold my hand when I'm in my final bed

When ships in the night are we
Ships in the night are we
Miss each other entirely
Ships in the night are we
Someone shine your light on me
Someone shine your light on me
Ships in the night are we
