lyrics

I was Afraid
I was lost,
Now I’m scared
I’ve been Found.

And the
air up
here’s
soft so
I’ve kept my ear
to the
ground.

Well I've been lost for a while
and now that I’m found I’ve
been looking for you and to me that’s profound.

It’s like,
“where
have
you been?”
Well I’ve been there too.

and,
“where
you
been since?”
I’ve been waiting for you.
I've
quite
thought of leaving,
but I believe
I’ve been left
and my beliefs
are
deceiving but
I’m deceived
by
what’s left.
I haven’t quite gotten the patience just yet for waiting around for you, now I’m hopeless. It’s been three times back and then forth... camp and then back, and so this is my fourth. If this telegram gets to you, I'm probably done, but I've left something else for you in the middle of the sun. I wanted to come down and tell you what I’ve found but I think I’ll just let the words talk for themselves now.

I'm just trying to do the right thing with the tools that I'm given. My thoughts are like lightening in this storm that I'm living. Sometimes I have a mission to guide in the children. Sometimes I know that I'm just a face in a crowd of millions. I don't know anyone who's not like me, and I can't think of someone who's exactly the same. I have a name that makes me different but remember I'm gifted with life, love, and expression.
