Lyrics
Lost and Found Ac 2009 by Joe Kretschmer

Where you been hiding? Where'd you go?
Thought you were with me all along, but you were laying low
Everybody knew it, everyone but me
Couldn't see the forest behind a lonely tree

I just kept on movin', living day to day
Goin' off to work, comin' home to play
Gathering cheap memories, then throwing them all away
And the cost--the time I'd lost--was 'way to much to pay...

[Bridge 1]
Life has a way of slipping by
Years fall through your fingers, and they don't say "good-bye"
...good-bye...

[Bridge 2]
Well, I traveled back in memory and found some dreams of mine
Things that I wanted to do when I was in my prime

So I found my old life, I'd lost long ago
And I'm gonna live it, every day, 'til it's time for me to go
A lifetime isn't measured by hours in a day,
When you add it up, we fill the cup, with what we do and say...
And those we meet and love along the way...
