I felt like a runaway
When I stood outside Jim's house
I thought that
Maybe with all of this I had been overreacting
Or maybe
You save me

And if I die
(If I die)
Waiting for my ship to come in
I just hope her ship comes in
And I'll be sorry for wasting your time

She finished the book and laid down in her bed
She was lonely, reading comics, feeling lost in her head
And I'd break through any window and save her if I could
I would run through any fire and I'm thinking I should

I should just cut all my losses and resign to the truth
This whole time I've been searching, I've been searching for you
And I discovered something I should never ignore
I now know what I'm here for

Last night she slept alright
She turned down the boy, she turned off the lights
She never expected he would put her back in that place
But maybe
She's crazy

And if I die
Waiting for my ship to come in
I just hope her ship comes in
And I'm sorry for wasting your time

I should just cut all my losses and resign to the truth
This whole time I've been searching, I've been searching for you
And I discovered something I should never ignore
I now know what I'm here for

I had to write a song
I had to let you know
They don't make girls like you anymore
They don't make kids like me anymore
So let's go get it while it's good
