Barry Manilow - Ships
Tekst en muziek: Ian Hunter
(1979)






We walked to the sea
Just my father and me
And the dogs played around on the sand
Winter cold cut the air
Hangin’ still everywhere
Dressed in gray, did he say
Hold my hand
I said, love’s easier when it’s far away
We sat and watched a distant light



We’re two ships that pass in the night
We both smile and we say it’s alright
We’re still here
It’s just that we’re out of sight
Like those ships that pass in the night



There’s a boat on the line
Where the sea meets the sky
There’s another that rides far behind
And it seems you and I are like strangers
A wide ways apart, as we drift on through time
He said, it’s harder now, we’re far away
We only read you when you write



We’re two ships that pass in the night
And we smile when we say it’s alright
We’re still here
It’s just that we’re out of sight
Like those ships that pass in the night



We’re just ships that pass in the night
And we smile when we say it’s alright
We’re still here
It’s just that we’re out of sight
Like those ships that pass in the night



We’re just two ships that pass in the night
And we smile when we say it’s alright
We’re still here
