lyrics

We tried more than seventeen times to keep this ship intact
Nothing felt as strong as us but now our hull is cracked
We tried to stay afloat and tried to make it back
Safety light was just in sight then everything went black

And now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
Is this the end or should I throw you a line?

You told me one thousand times you don't know why we stay together
If loving me’s some kind of chore you don't need to work for me baby
And every time we rocked a little you'd be the first to jump the ship
Darling it breaks me inside to know we're so ill-equipped oh oh oh oh

And now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
Is this the end or will you throw me a line?

I can't try anymore, anymore
To keep float with you, with you
I can't try anymore, anymore
When it's not getting through
When it's not getting through

Now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
This is the end darling, the end of the line
