​Ships In A Bottle

This song is by Butch Walker and appears on the album Sycamore Meadows (2008).

Everybody sleeps
But I haven't done that in the last few weeks or so
And yeah, I know the remedy
But they ran out yesterday, I can't refill anything
Especially my heart, especially my brain
If I could bottle up this mess I would do it all again

And I don't want to know if there's another part of me
Don't want to feel if I'm alive
Don't want to smell the bed where you used to sleep
I'm gonna miss it again, miss it again
I just wanna walk away from the ashes and take the fact that I got burned
And baby let you know I'm still standing
And if you miss it again, miss it again, I'm around

And you, you live down the street
And I watched you through the windows draped with sheets so white
And yeah, he looks a lot like me
Is it a comfort or coincidence, coincidence that's everything
Especially my eyes, especially my clothes
Does he move you inside out? Baby, I don't want to know

And I don't want to know if there's another part of me
Don't want to feel if I'm alive
Don't want to smell the bed where you used to sleep
I'm gonna miss it again, miss it again
Just wanna walk away from the ashes and take the fact that I got burned
And baby let you know I'm still standing
If you miss it again miss it again

All the times we fought about
You never said a word about
How we would just become the ships inside of a bottle
Breaking down, sails falling off.
Trying to stay afloat inside a place we can't survive
Are we breaking down

And I don't want to know if there's another part of me
Don't want to feel if I'm alive
Don't want to smell the bed where you used to sleep
I'm gonna miss it again, miss it again
I just wanna walk away from the ashes and take the fact that I got burned
And baby let you know I'm still standing
And if you miss it again miss it again, I'm around
