Treasure Island

David Lessard


Lost


I can't last a day without you,
it would not be complete;
for without you, I am lost,
and wander in the street.

Going round in circles, lost,
I cannot find my way;
I'm without a compass,
and don't know how to pray.

Don't know how to live my life,
I laugh instead of cry;
I'm missing out on love,
and don't know the reason why.

Must there be a reason then?
for all my trials and trouble?
guess I'm a soul in limbo,
searching through the rubble.

Why do I doubt you Lord?
is it because of sin?
or that spectre in my face,
that knows just where I've been?

Help me in my faith Lord,
so I can tear apart this wall;
so I can see more clearly,
so I will not fall.
