Your daddy was a good man.
Had a smile that weighed a ton
There was nothing in that man but life.
It's all I hear from everyone.
The time I should have been there to see the hero or the clown.
But I don't it seems like sometimes
Somethings are best left lost, then found
He grew up on the ocean and loved the open sea.
He must've felt alive out there alone and strong and wild and free.
Even cold and tired, lost and looking for the ground.
He should have figured soemtimes the best things in life are lost, then found.

Always say the best is lost, then found.
Whatever it is you're going through the best things in life are coming around.
The futures just a worry, the past is just a dream.
This isn't my opinion, it's only what I've seen.

He grew into a soildier and he faught in many wars.
The wars at home and wars with songs, the forgetten war before Vietnam
And I wonder what it felt like when they handed him a gun.
I wonder if he killed a father, I wonder if he killed a son.
He tried to be preacher and sort of almost was.
But he couldn't find his place in faith he faught with teachers and faught with God.
He never took it easy, he never settled down.
He never realized sometimes the best things in life are lost, then found.

Always say the best is lost, then found.
Whatever it is you're going through the best things in life are coming around.
The futures just a worry, the past is just a dream.
This isn't my opinion, it's only what I've seen.

The plain truth is my father died in jail.
I wonder what that room was like,
I wonder how his busted body felt.
And I'll never get to know those things unless I get that far down.
I guess that's why they say sometimes the best things in life are lost, then found.

Always say the best is lost, then found.
Whatever it is you're going through the best things in life are coming around.
The futures just a worry, the past is just a dream.
This isn't my opinion, it's only what I've seen.
It's only what I've seen.
It's only what I've seen.
