about

Melody and idea from the lyric 'Lost and Found' by Ryan Tedder. Written in 2008 by Justin Justice.

lyrics

You see me in shadow
As a figure
In darkness
In a cloudy fog
An apparition
A ghost of your past

What you know
You don't believe it
You won't receive it
You'd pay the highest cost

A lapse in judgement
A passing laugh

When fortune and fate collapse
I will be gone
And which lesson will you learn
To swim alone in the dark
To fall from pillars of stone

And for now, and for always
You'll be struck by a terror so blinding you can't seem to begin to escape
And for now, and for always
You'll be struck by a terror so blinding you can't seem to begin to escape

You see me in shadow
As a figure
In darkness
In a cloudy fog
An apparition
A ghost of your past

What you know
You don't believe it
You won't receive it
You'd pay the highest cost

A lapse in judgement
A passing laugh

When fortune and fate collapse
I will be gone
And which lesson will you learn
To swim alone in the dark
To fall from pillars of stone

And for now, and for always
You'll be struck by a terror so blinding you can't seem to begin to escape
And for now, and for always
You'll be struck by a terror so blinding you can't seem to begin to escape

And for what was the reason?
And for what was the reason, yea
Now, for what was the reason
For what was the reason yea
And for what was the reason
For what was the reason yea
And for what was the reason?
