Owl City

Owl City - Captains And Cruise Ships

rate me


I am stuck in L.A. through the week and cant get away<br>

And you're alone on the pier in West Palm Beach on your holiday<br>

Stormy nights, re-awake the stomach ache <br>

That I've acquired, from feeling down<br>

Things look grim and I'm so sick of being tired<br>


Apartment lights go dark and its depressing<br>

But what can I do?<br>

The midnight streets feel dead<br>

When I am so used to driving with you<br>


Brighter lights fill the night<br>

And bluer skys reflect in your eyes<br>

As I inspect and analyze<br>

All of these dreams I don't recognize<br>


If you're still up when the ships in the port prepare to set sail<br>

Comb the beach and put those blue flowers up in your ponytail<br>

Inside my head your voice is still resounding but what can I do?<br>

The empty rooms feel cold when I am so used to being with you<br>


Count the stars, watch the waves absorb the summer sun<br>

And think of me when you explore hidden coves <br>

And tiny island chains throughout the sea<br>

Can you still, hear my voice<br>

When I'm outside, from over the phone?<br>


For what it's worth, darling dear<br>

I wish you were here, 'cause I feel alone<br>

When you were home we'd sing <br>

But since you've left I dont hear anything<br>

Though I feel so sad<br>

I can't believe things are really that bad<br>


Old captains and brand new cruise ships<br>

Sailing over the briny sea<br>

When I crashed my beloved desk job<br>

And swim through the debris<br>


I'll cut loose leave this mad house<br>

Bound for the Atlantic blue<br>

I'll stroll down your treelined driveway<br>

And sail the ocean with you<br>
