I was lost, and I looked

I fell, and no one caught me

Time after time

I was searching

No one was waiting

I was falling, ain’t nobody care


I was lost, and I looked

And I finally saw me

I was standing right there

Needing no one beside me

I searched and saw

I could be everything I need be

A somebody

For whom I cared


But then I found you

And I finally knew

what safety could look like

but damn if it ain’t still ghostlike

time after time
