Rick Springfield “Our Ship’s Sinking” – LIVE Rehearsal from Rick Springfield on Vimeo.


by Rick Springfield & Matt Bissonette

Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!

If I’m the one who caused
your ship wrecked life
Then hold my hand
right to the fire
And I’ll bear this cross of love
enough for you, enough for me, yeah
Even though the waters all around climbing higher

Though our ship’s sinking
I’m rowing and I swear
I won’t give up
And I won’t let go
So don’t start thinking you’re going anywhere
Cuz I’m not ready to let you go

I booked a passage on a ship of fools
I led the lamb right to the slaughter
We survived the storm some how
I missed it then
I see it now and
It’s a wonder why I’m not laying
face down in the water

Though our ship’s sinking
I’m rowing and I swear
I won’t give up
And I won’t let go
So don’t start thinking you’re going anywhere
Cuz I’m not ready to let you go

Though our ship’s sinking
I’m sending out a prayer
And 10 good reasons you can believe
So just stop thinking you’re going anywhere
Cuz I’m not ready to let you leave

Bruised sky
I can hear the thunder
These chains would have
dragged me under
It’s a wonder I’m not laying
face down in the water!

Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!

Though our ship’s sinking
I’m rowing and I swear
I won’t give up
And I won’t let go
So don’t start thinking you’re going anywhere
Cuz I’m not ready to let you go

Though our ship’s sinking
I’m sending out a prayer
And 10 good reasons you can believe
So just stop thinking you’re going anywhere
Cuz I’m not ready to let you leave

Our ship’s sinking!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!

Though our ship’s sinking!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!

Our ship’s sinking!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!

Though Our ship’s sinking!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Whoa! Oh! Oh!
