Gone and Found by: Mo

Lyrics:

“Gone And Found”

Hollow, old ghost
What’s the news, what’s the news
How I’ve longed to see your face again
Don’t look at me like I’m a stranger
Don’t be scared, there is no danger
We pretend that we don’t care
So let’s just take a walk and leave it there

‘Cause sometimes things just don’t turn out as you meant for
And that’s what late night city lights are there for
You asked me back then what I wanted to be
But I didn’t really know, did you?

My mama said, “Someday you are gonna shine.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
“You’ll meet a guy who’ll show you a love that’s kind.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
I’ll run away and follow a strange old sign
(Dare no others would do)
You know I am sorry I let you down
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)

What did you expect from these red lips?
Curses laughter and a tender kiss
Hours went by and you got it all
Empty walls in a hollow city
What was I to do but flee?
When all my thoughts lay far beyond the sea

(Let’s go get lost)

And sometimes life just don’t turn out as you meant for
And that’s what late night city lights are there for
So let’s go get lost, we’re gonna go
Let us do it, my old friend

My mama said, “You will be wise this time.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
“Eager to ride on the waters of your own mind.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
Dimwitted man, you know I am so [?]
(Dare no others would do)
Someday the wave’s gonna show me the way to the sand
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)

Let’s go get, let’s go get, let’s go get lost

My mama said, “Someday you are gonna shine.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
“You’ll be a woman, soft in your heart and kind.”
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
I’ll run away and follow a strange old sign
(Dare no others would do)
You know I am sorry I let you down
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)

I’ll run away and follow a strange old sign
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)
You know I am bound to be gone and found
(Don’t know where I’m traveling to)

(Dare no others would do
I don’t know where I’m traveling to)

From Me to Love

I wrote love a letter today
Explaining why we had to divorce yesterday
Pouring forth my intense anger
My unsolicited thoughts
Into a ten-page lament about love
And how love have left hearts broken
Broken hearts half the time hesitant about being in love
Scratching out every word denoting any sense of love
I used my permanent marker and scratched those words out
There isn’t passion, loyalty, companionship, tranquility
There is only angst, remorse, regret, hurt
Leaving the world starving for what it thought could heal its wounds-Love
Love has only disappointed
Playing cat-and-mouse with hearts
Taking us on a roller-coaster of uncertainties
Getting us ready for the great drop at our climatic peak to only leave us in sorrow and emptiness
Racing to try out this thing called love to only have us crash like raindrops upon the ground
Obliterating our unfulfilled love dreams
Castrating our want of love in this human-experience
Slicing away our every since of what it means to be human
A human in love, that is loved and want to have love
Love is just a thief
Snatching away dreams
And robbing away this wanted emotion
Making the world just a place of anger and madness
Oh how I wish I didn’t divorce you yesterday my love
But until I find true love I can’t just love the idea of love.

A Love Like No Other

I want to collapse within your arms
Ride upon the tidal waves of your words
Become immersed in your thoughts
Rest my heart upon yours
Lie limp while listening to your secrets
Indulge in a world that is secretly ours
Gaze upon one another
Watching one another breathe
Matching our heart beats with one another
Placing our hands upon each others heart
Feeling our bodies intertwine
Beating like drums
Racing like cars dashing down an open road
Our eyes meet
Looking within each other’s windows
Seeing fear, love, excitement and hurt
Tears racing down his face
Shattering upon my hands
Lifting his head
Wiping away his tears
Smiling
Holding onto his hands and whispering
“My love, I will never leave you. I will always be right here”
