lyrics

I built a sailing ship for you
I pushed it out to sea and bid adieu
Well it drifted out halfway and came unglued
Oh my ship it never stays afloat for you

I made a paper plane instead
Yeah I folded til my hands they nearly bled
And I threw it but it never flew ahead
My target was apparently misread
Cause the pilot and the crew were left for dead

My hands are getting tired
And my heart, well it's a mess
Cause I've been building all these hopes
Since I dont know when
When all you see
Are failed attempts.

I built a tiny train for you
I laid down every track until I knew
Spanned long enough to go from me to you
Derailed as soon as it went out of view
Conductor cryin' out, It can't be true

My hands are getting tired
And my heart, well it's a mess
Cause I've been building all these hopes
Since I dont know when
When all you see
Are failed attempts
