Life sucks
A dream dies
A child cries
A heart breaks
And there's no place
To run away and hide

Some days
All's lost
Hope fades
The game's played
The rain pours
And there's no more
Wishes to be made
Some days...

But somewhere
I know
The sky is blue
The day is new
We'll get the chance
To get up and dance
Like we don't care

Some day

Lost Me

I'm lost
Not because I wandered off
Pretty sure
I was misplaced
Set aside
Somewhere safe
Only no one thought
To remember
Exactly where
I'm out of sight
Out of mind
The dust collects
So does the time but I
Just wait
For a sign
For a sound
For someone
To find me
And clear the dust off me
Maybe even
The someone
Who lost me.
