with every word, I live again
through the eyes of another
we'll meet at night wet from the rain
and surprise each other
with how we take away the pain
could you be the one to find me safe and sound?
love is how it's lost, not how it's found

I dont know those eyes, but I see beauty there, always
I know its wrong to love you from afar, but it's a craze
you recognize my pain
could you be the one to find me safe and sound?
love is how it's lost, not how it's found
love is how it's lost, not how it's found

you take away my pain
could you be the one to find me safe and sound?
love is how it's lost, not how it's found
love is how it's lost, not how it's found

oh, I'll take away your pain
could you be the one to find me safe and sound?
love is how it's lost, not how it's found
love is how it's lost, not how it's found

love is how I'm lost, not how I'm found...

    General Commentorenda wrote this, she's saying that love doesn't happen when you feel perfect and 'safe and sound' (like she assumes) rather it happens when you're in pain and you need it and what signifies love is not the state you're in when you meet but rather when you leave one another, in that case you should be made better by that person's love...

    General Commentmy version is different:

    with every word i live again through the eyes of another
    we'll meet at night wet from the rain and surprise each other
    with how we take away the pain..

    General Commentimagining what it would be like if the person with whom you are infatuated chose to want you back. this song has an incredible dreamlike quality, and IT sounds wet from the rain.

    absolutely stunning.

    General Commentyeah, i really only long to be found by someone. i don't think anyone cares to look. it's sad, but this song is beautiful and encompasses that feeling of being lost and wanting someone to "find you." i think really that's what everyone wants... to be found when they feel lost.
