about

"Sometimes even though that ship has sailed, you'd still like to catch a glimpse of it from time to time."

This song's had quite a few stories attached to it already. I could not have brought it to a close without Kylee Henke.

Thanks to Kiore, Chell, Andrew, James, and AF for their top pledges!!
And thanks to everyone for making this possible.

lyrics

I’m building ships in bottles
ships all long sailed and sank
i’m hiding out again to
turn real life away.

I waste time on these models,
on dreams hat won’t come true
i’ll curse the ones that sunk them
but never mention who.

nobody’s gotta know
what never was.
nobody’s gotta know
what never will be.

nothing more than just antiques

I'm building ships in bottles
They'll stay there till they break
I'm building ships in bottles.
Storing thoughts away,

but i’ve tried
to bottle it all up inside
knick-knacks n the back of my mind

I'm building ships in bottles
I'm building ships in bottles


I’m building ships in bottles
all lined up for display.
hobbies like these are novelties
and too cliché.

I break mastheads embedding.
my crafts are just pastimes.
I get to steps i dread and
scrap these bad designs.

I'm building ships in bottles
They'll stay there till they break
I'm building ships in bottles.
Storing thoughts away,

but i’ve tried
to bottle it all up inside
knick-knacks n the back of my mind

I'm building ships in bottles
I'm building ships in bottles

and if i close my eyes i’m on that sea
and in the open skies i feel that breeze,
you and me, could scheme full-scale
getting hung up on the fine details
no, we never strung up sails.

I’m building ships in bottles
ships all long sailed and sank
i’m stuck here wishing things
had gone a different way.
