Oh, Sleeper – Two Ships Lyrics

Two Ships Lyrics by Oh, Sleeper


I can see what scares you
I can see through every scar
Where there is no light in the pitch of the night, I’ll find you
I won’t leave you stranded
I’ve never left you alone
When you see no light in the pitch of the night, I’m beside you

Two ships pass in the night
One gilded in gold, one slowed from the cold
Then I see you counting pinpoints of light
In hopes that one might tear and give sight behind
The curtain you fight and prove that you’re right
This has all been a lie

I can see you’ve got the answers
But your fight is not with me
Your fear is becoming one of my blind and boasted sheep
Oh, I never made a coward
And I never made them sleep
I never made them damn your name
Can’t you see it wasn’t me?

Two ships pass in the night
One gilded in gold, one slowed from the cold
Then I see you counting pinpoints of light
In hopes that one might tear and give sight behind
The curtain you fight and prove that you’re right
This has all been a lie

Be the man I planted
My warrior in the sea
In your ocean, death devours but
You can break its foaming teeth
You will not be abandoned
But I will not intercede
You’ve gotta look past them, look past them
Set your sight on me
But if you never turn and face me
You’ll live adrift alone
Live your life in the night
And die with my light sitting
Right beside you
I’ve been
Right beside you
I’m always
Right beside you
