BALLAD OF A LOST MAN FOUND Lyrics by Steve Marshall

(Editor Note: my apologies for the formatting of this outstanding post I simply can not format the way Steve wanted it – there are 2 verses, Chorus, 2 more and Chorus. 

 

Alone in the darkness

And asleep in my bed

Dreams of my old life

Play out in my head.

How did I get here       

And when can I leave?

I’m so tired of wearing

My heart on my sleeve.

 

I look in the mirror   

  And I see in my face       

  A time when I lived        

In a fine state of grace.

How did I fall, then,        

So far from that place?

How does love disappear

Without leaving a  trace?

 

Chorus:           

God in heaven hold me

Caress me and enfold me

And keep the homefires

Burning through the night.     

I know I took the wrong  road

And now I walk the long road

Searchin’ for a way                     

Back to the light.

 

There’s so much to learn

And thoughts to arrange

And truths to be told           

To bring about change.          

I start up the ladder        

With so far to climb           

I’m doing the work     

While I’m doing my time.

 

I look in my heart           

And I finally see             

The world doesn’t rotate Only for me.                     

I’m a part of the whole 

Like a bee in a hive.             

I know what it means       

To be fully alive.

 

Chorus:           

God in heaven hold me

Caress me and enfold me

And keep the homefires

Burning through the night.              

 I know I took the wrong road

And now I walk the long road

Searchin’ for a way                    

 Back to the light                       

Still searchin’ for a way

Back to the light.
