Burn the ships that take us to the past. Addictions, bad memories, wrong relationships, etc.
Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don’t you look back
So long to shame, walk through the sorrow
Out of the fire into tomorrow
So flush the pills, face the fear
Feel the weight disappear
We’re comin’ clean, we’re born again
Our hopeful lungs can breathe again
Oh, we can breathe again
Love this song by the band for KING & COUNTRY – burn the ships (Official Music Video)
The lyrics are inspired by the story of the singer’s wife who got into an addiction. One day, she just decided she didn’t want anything to do with it. She flushed all the pills and never looked back.
Here’s the music video:
