Ships

Ships

Big Country

Look at him now
Another used man
Wearing the passing of his dignity
With all the courage that he can
He stood in the storm
Carved out in stone
He said I've worn my honesty with pride
In everything I've done
So where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
So where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
Look at her now
All tired and worn
She never thought her life
Would come to be so cold or so alone
She walked in the light
Fought bondage for love
She said I cast off the chains that I was born with
But it never was enough
And where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
Silent souls washed upon the shores
Left to walk the sands
Evermore, evermore
Oh now where were you
When my ship went down
Look at us now, just chasing our lives
Make like the saviors of the planet
We're just trying to get by
You may walk the line
Now you may see it all through
I know you cry yourself to sleep at night
Just wondering what to do
And where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
And where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
Oh now where were you
When my ship went down
Where were you when my ship went down
Where were you when I ran aground
Where were you when I turned it around
Where were you when they burned me down
