Lost

Where the little ones dwell that's lost in the night
Be sure of your journey, beware of your plight
When love has failed you and all seems lost
The path that you choose will come with a cost

The choices you make are yours to keep
Mired in frustration, you're buried too deep
Escaping the past was your only plan
Running away from where it began

The hurt seems to follow where ever you run
Nothing can change the things that's been done
Forced to grow up before you were grown
Abandoned by love, you're now on your own

The dreams that you take move further away
They have to be earned and you'll have to pay
Though life is a gift, freedom has a cost
In finding yourself sometimes you get lost
