ryan montbleau LYRICS 

LOVE AND LOVE LOST

 

Kept, like a reason to live

There but unthought of

Taken for granted, strong, but unheard of

Folded away in the depths of each day

Lost, like patience on Friday

Like a star behind the moon

Burning and beautiful and looked at too soon

I’ve thrown it away in the interest of time

And this dream of mine

Dreams, they happen out of order

Nothing is real but the tick, tick, ticking of the clock on the wall

Fall to the ceiling, jump to the ground

Hope or hope not that you will wake up someday soon and be found

 

Oh, that frightening light will come again

Just like the moment you came out of your mom

And you cried and you longed for that familiar darkness

So now you’re holding it down, drinks at the bar

Fresh faces and friends, opportunities abounding

Who knows how long, how far this night will go

And who’s she, and which way, and which bar

And my, my, how time flies by with these long nights on the rocks

How time flies when you’re alone and jaded

 

Will you make it alone?

Will you discover yourself?

Will you give it away to someone else?

And will they understand, will they understand

 

You’re just a bundle of love

You’re just love and love lost

 

Gone, like the fool in the park

Who scares all the children

And laughs out loud to himself of what he once was

This is your love

This is your love

Well, that fool was once something so beautiful

Something alright, something upstanding

Now disheveled and frightening

This is your love

This is your love

 

His head spins around but his heart beats on

Looks to the air, through the crowd, to the ground

Everywhere for something to feed on

This is your love

This is your love

 

You’d like to think that you can pass it on by

But you can’t, no, no, this is your love

Person to person, past to past

This is all you have

This is all you have

 

Will you make it alone?

Will you discover yourself?

Will you give it away to someone else?

And will they understand

Now that you understand

That you are not a lost cause

And you are more that what was

 

You’re just a bundle of love

You’re just love and love lost

You’re just love, you’re just love and love lost

And that’s all you are

So much love to give

So much baggage to carry it in now

You’re just love and love lost
