Ship in The Dock - Kate Voegele

Tuesday at 2:00 a.m. long after you said goodnight
I put the coffee on strong and I bought me some time
The roses you left me were dead on the desk to my right
A subtle reminder that nothing's designed to survive

Love overcome is a battle half-won
The view from both sides of the gun

CHORUS
Well now I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
Cause it's time I untied all the knots
Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
Well that's a ship in the dock

The wind's picking up and I'm looking above for a sign
Your photograph hanging, a moment just clinging to life
But I've seen the top of those trees on the opposite side
And if the grass isn't greener, then I'll know at least that I tried

Cause I won't let myself live in this world of "what if"s
But it don't get much harder than this, oh

CHORUS
I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
Cause it's time I untied all the knots
Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
Well that's a ship in the dock

Oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h yeah
Oh-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h oh-h-h

CHORUS
I'm so afraid to be ready
To change all these locks
To disconnect the dots
And I just can't take the pain
Although make no mistake
Cause it's time I untied all the knots
Cause if there's one thing I know that I'm not
Well that's a ship in the dock, oh-h-h-h yeah

I know I'm not ... and that's a ship in the dock
