Good Old War - My Own Sinking Ship Lyrics

What will be your story now
Today it's something far inside
Hurts your body close your eyes
And I'll bring you back to here

You are my own sinking ship
'Cause everyday the current shifts
And I picked apart your wasted lies
to get you back to here

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Oh it's the last try to break apart
You are not to blame

Why can't I just be all right?
Why cant I invade your mind?
Somedays we're just so far off
But I want you back right here

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Yeah, it's the last try to break apart
Sayin you are not to blame

Can't remember your last smile
I think I made it happen though
Then I took you off to work once more
But I just want you, I just want you,
I just want you here

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Yeah, it's the last try to break apart
Sayin you are not to blame

    No that's Kenny from The Starting Line in Vacationer

    Brent Hnatiuk

    Kenny is doing stuff with his band vacationer. Check them out they're pretty dope. Feel good music

  9. CarolsVideos

    This isn't the same singer as Vacationer is it? They sound identical!!

  10. Ryan Walsh

    Keith has such strange arm movements/dance moves while he sings. It's funny but great at the same time cause it shows he puts emotion into his songs.

  11. Drew Clemens

    Main singer looks like Charlie Day. ;3 I love it! Good Old War is perfect and will forever remain one of my favorite groups.

  17. neoman1994

    My friend was bugging me about listening to these guys because they`re ``hipster music`` To which I said that I listen to them because they're awesome. Not because they're indie. But for 5$ extra in spite, I ordered the vinyl edition of their album :3

  18. Jack McGarry

    That Guild.

  19. earlyearl _

    Gänsehaut. Wunderschön.

  20. Tim Doran

    The guy on accordion came out onstage very drunk during Maps & Atlases show in Chicago the other night and played a snare but couldn't seem to figure out how it worked. Entertaining as hell. And now I'm here.

    Brian Dubya
