BEFORE WE LOST THE WAY
by Selia Qynn, lyrics 11/5/96, music 1997

How did it get so complex? I always trusted love.
Yet that imposter, lust, has led me on.
What was I thinking anyway when I wandered off with you?
To who knows where we went, we were so gone.

I guess I took it pretty hard when you told me we were lost.
Somehow I always thought you knew the way.
And I love you even though I wish I didn't anymore.
And you can't think of anything to say.

The stars have all gone out and something's wrong.
The birds have stopped singing songs.
I swear I heard an angel cry.
Liquid sorrow fills my eyes.
Nothing in the universe behaves
Like it did before we lost the way.

Bitterness brought me to this lonely place.
And hoplessness welcomed me to stay.
So, I'm waiting for a miracle, or a rebound love affair,
To get me over missing you this way.

The stars have all gone out and something's wrong.
The birds have stopped singing songs.
I swear I heard an angel cry.
Liquid sorrow fills my eyes.
Nothing in the universe behaves
Like it did before we lost the way.
