Lost & Found

(david m. bailey)
Last night I saw the moon above Miami
Watched until the morning light
It began to fade as the sky began to change
From black, to gray, to a bluish kind of white
And I wondered what it could be thinking
And why it chose such a thin disguise
Did it really think I wouldn’t know that it was there
Just ‘cause I couldn’t see it with my eyes
Some say you gotta see it to believe it
I say it’s the other way around
First you must believe, then you’ll understand,
Like a dream that’s waiting in the lost & found
So here I am, sitting in this hotel
Looking out the window at the trees
There’s a ripple in the water and the palms begin to dance
I can’t feel it, but I’m sure there’s a breeze
And I wonder where it must have come from
Or if it were its final resting place
Did it really think I wouldn’t know that it was there
Just ‘cause I couldn’t feel it on my face
Some say you gotta feel it to believe it
I say it’s the other way around
First you must believe, then you’ll understand,
Like a dream that’s waiting in the lost & found
So tonight, I’ll sing again for strangers
Each song will be a kind of prayer
For those who are alone, and those who are tired
And those who have forgotten what it’s like to care
And I wonder what they will be thinking
When I take the stage and finally start
Will they really think this is a brand new song
When the truth is it’s written in their hearts
Some say you gotta hear it to believe it
I say it’s the other way around
First you must believe, then you’ll understand,
Like a dream that’s waiting in the lost & found
