Boats Against the Current Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I know it's over
You know it's over
We're just goin' through the motions
But we're sailing separate oceans, worlds apart
And you know it's breakin' my heart
Verse 2
I was a dreamer
You were a dreamer
But perfection is consuming
And it seems we're only human after all
And we've both been takin' the fall
Verse 0
But tomorrow
We'll run a little bit faster
We're gonna find what we're after at last
Feelings that we left in the past
There's romance in the sunset
We're boats against the current to the end
Verse 3
Maybe we're older
And maybe we're colder
So we disregard solutions
While we cling to our illusions once again
And we keep remembering when
Seasons are changing
Oh my reasons are changing
But the story isn't ending
So we find ourselves pretending one more day
And the years keep slipping away
Verse 4
[Chorus: x2]
Verse 5
Romance in the sunset
We're boats against the current to the end
To the end
