No Such Thing As Lost

I used to know a girl, who I felt that I should love
Together we journied a season, but it wasn't enough.
The "I love you"'s became the raft to which we clang,
And the silences became tears. The sky sang
In harmony, reflecting our inner fears.
And the storm washed us out, carried us away
Like rats stowed upon a ship, to a brighter day.

Don't fear "goodbyes", because those become "hello"s,
As we find a way to rise out of our all-time lows.
I know it hurts, I know it's hard, I know it's so uncertain,
But I believe there's always paradise, hiding behind the curtain.
So afraid to fail, afraid to live, feeling like we could die.
But some say the night is darkest, before the emerging light.

She was the morning star, she was the twine
Caught up on my ankles, while I was tripping over my mind.
The hardest part of letting go, is surrendering to fate,
But if you never try, you'll never know, so try before it's too late.
And never look back, to the dying light of yesterday,
Hold aloft your candle, and be content with your inner flame.

Don't fear "goodbyes", because those become "hello"s,
As we find a way to rise out of our all-time lows.
It's impossible to stray, as we've never been lost,
Life is all about losing, and there's no such thing as cost.
You get the day, you get the moment, and that's always a gift,
Few things are guaranteed, including every step you take, until your last breath.

I never saw her again, if I saw her at all
Down on my hands, I began to crawl
As the stars lit my way.
The sun the father, the moon the mother,
Until there's nothing left to say.
The truth, the moon, the sun,
All come out in time, when all is said and done.
