Intro : G#-C#M7-G#-C#

     G#          C#M7         D#         C7/E
We walked to the sea, just my father and me,
        Fm           G#/Eb        C#M7 C#
and the dogs played around on the sand.
   D#  G#           C#M7       D#          C7/E
Winter cold cut the air hangin still everywhere,
           Fm           G#/Eb          C#M7 C#/Eb  Eb
dressed in gray, did he say, “Hold my hand”?
G#7                                C#        Cm        
  I said, “Love’s easier when it’s far away.”
Bbm                            D#
  We sat and watched a distant light.

CHORUS:
 
C#/Eb Eb  B          D#m          E(add2) F#sus
We’re two ships that pass in the night,
         B           D#m         E(add2) F#7sus
we both smile and we say it’s alright.
            B                    D#m7         EM7  
We’re still here, it’s just that we’re out of sight,
           G#m        F#          EM7 D#m/F# G#  C#M7    
like those ships that pass in the ni_________ght.
 

          G#          C#M7            D#             C7/E 
There’s a boat on the line, where the sea meets the sky,
          Fm         G#/Eb       C#M7  C#
there’s another that rides far behind.
    D# G#            C#M7        D#          C7/E
and it seems you and I are like strangers, a wide
      Fm         G#/Eb             C#M7 C#/Eb  Eb 
ways apart as we drift on through time.
G#7                               C#       Cm           
   He said, its harder now, we’re far away,
Bbm                          D#
   We only read you when you write.
(Repeat Chorus Except Last word)
EM7  D#m C#m7  D#m7
Ni ______ght
Em7   A    F          Am7         BbM7  C
We’re just ships that pass in the night,
        Dm7          Am7        BbM7   C
we both smile and we say it’s alright.
       A/C# F                    Am7          BbM7   C
We’re still here, it’s just that we’re out of sight,
      A    Dm         C           BbM7  C#M7    
Like those ships that pass in the night.
