Lyrics and music by Maggie Walton, Curtis Stith

Lyrics

You’re a shipwreck in a bottle
Completely self contained
For fear that someone on the outside
Could be a witness to your pain

And no i’ve never been an anchor
And i’ve never calmed the sea
I let my knees fall to the ground
And pray that someday you’ll be free

And I keep waiting, and watching
Hoping that someday you’ll come around
And i pray that when this ship sinks
You’ll trust in something that won’t let you drown

But I assure you, it won’t be long
Until someone breaks the glass

You make up all kinds of good reasons
And you have every right to fear
You listen to the shouts of demons
As angels whisper in your ear

And I keep waiting, and watching
Hoping that someday you’ll come around
And i pray that when this ship sinks
You’ll trust in something that won’t let you drown

But I assure you, it won’t be long
Until someone breaks the glass

And I keep waiting, and watching
Hoping that someday you’ll come around
And i pray that when this ship sinks
You’ll trust in something that won’t let you drown

But I assure you, it won’t be long
Until someone breaks the glass
