Stranded

You searched for love – turned every stone

You tried to find perfection now you’re all alone

The fading light – within your eyes

Reflects a cold moon rising in an empty sky

 

You’re on an island of pain - and you feel

Stranded - between the dreams you thought you knew

And what the world has made of you

You watch your life just sail away - and leave you

Stranded – like the shipwreck on the shore

Or all the hopes you knew before - Will you just let them slip away

 

Behind those tears – you used to know

How love becomes the doorway into every soul

You closed the door – and turned the key

And nothing on the outside can ever set you free

 

You’re on an island of pain - and you feel

Stranded - between the dreams you thought you knew

And what the world has made of you

You watch your life just sail away - and leave you

Stranded – like the shipwreck on the shore

Of all the hopes you knew before - Will you just let them slip away

 

Beneath the pain you feel a spark from the love you tried to find

You hear it call from deep in your heart where it’s been waiting all this time

 

Stranded - between the dreams you thought you knew

And what the world has made of you

You watch your life just sail away - and leave you

Stranded – like the shipwreck on the shore
