Lost and found, years long gone
Like wind fled from empty sails
Lost and found
And lost again

Adrift across the hollow miles
Our fading wakes ride the waves
Lost and found
And lost again

The hunt of a hungry heart
Preys upon the past
Seeking lives unsung
And questions left unasked

From rocky shores and barren peaks
Searching back for love undone
Lost and found
And lost again

The hunt of a hungry heart
Preys upon the past
Seeking lives unsung
And questions left unasked

I gotta look back, I gotta ask why
Forty-eight frames of your precious time
Are too much to ask for free
Sitting in the dark in the cineplex
The magic of the moment our eyes first met
But you were blind and never saw me
A familiar voice in Dolby sound
But never a connection when I call your phone
The words I hear are only lines
Love expires as the credits roll
Light dies out when the curtains close
I wanted more than scripted lives

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
You’ve made it now and we’re through

Two thousand miles from a Texas town
Red carpet strolls and Versace gowns
Seduced you away from me
A soulless little yellow man
Offers absolution for a million sins
And promises to set you free
But you hide behind an entourage
Imprisoned by a magazine image
Of a glossy, public pose
Hiding out in the paparazzi pack
Feasting on you through their looking glass
I wait here in the cold.

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
I’ve made it now and we’re through

A ‘Vette dust storm through the desert heat
The windshield is our silver screen
We flee the beast into the night
Neon splattered on the valley floor
Like the glow of crime scene luminal
In the CSI’s UV light
A hundred miles an hour into the final scene
Wind swallows up our dialogue screams
The slug line never looks back
They’ll find you in my tight embrace
Like the dreams we had in younger days
We are the stars in the final act

I’ve got one thing to say to you
Remember what we came to do
The lies that we told came true
We’ve made it now and we’re through

Jet Blue jumping off runway nine
Climbing east on the last red eye
One mind’s crossed, another dreams
But nothing’s ever as it seems

Lightning spikes the midnight sky
A heartland pierced with a hundred lies
Thunder feared but never heard
Our feelings tossed in a gale of words

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

Airbus floats into a misty dawn
A final approach to a coming down
Boston Harbor blooms into view
Three thousand miles away from you.

Sometimes right, often wrong
Often lost, but sometimes found
We fell in love and fell out again

Wings without wind,
Love without sin
Never looking back behind
Racing down the centerline

I am a whirling dervish, a carousel of chaos
Spinning and twirling ‘til my thoughts uncross
The hum of darkness, soothes my restless mind
And sails me away to where our thoughts entwine

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

Without words we speak, sitting side-by-side
Everywhere and nowhere pass by on our lonesome ride
Embraced in our travels, we mean no others harm
Chasing a moment with your hand on my arm

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

Fingers of wind, running through my hair
Break my spinning spell with cool night air
Wake to the noise of a same old different day
Our dream will always be there to take me away

Apart from each other, we dream one dream
Visions linked by a lone moonbeam

I am a whirling dervish, a carousel of chaos
Spinning and twirling ‘til my thoughts uncross

The moon is bright and it shows me the way
Makes me howl to be kept at bay
Don’t wanna keep on chasing my own tail
Gotta follow my instincts, keep my nose to the trail
Knowing trouble beckons me on the other side
But a good time is the call and there’s no place left to hide
Hear me

The scent of desire is in the air
There’s a slavering lust inside, so you all should beware
‘Cause I’ve tasted freedom and I want some more
Wanna get down and dirty like I did before
You can tell that I’m up to no good
A million-dollar collar ain’t gonna change my mood
Hear me

It’s just the natural way, when two things attract
I simply can’t resist the power of the pack
The place I belong is out on the other side
The pull is so strong, like the moon on the tides
I can’t ignore their calls; the feeling’s too intense
I long to be uncaged as I gaze through the fence
Hear me
