I break, I borrow, I live, I lose
I pray, I'm hollowed, I'm dead, confused
I'll find you

What is love and what's it for?
I'm stuck outside an open door,
And no one's come to get me yet.
I never got a second bet

I'm welcomed to your fantasy
If only she was make-believe
Oh, what is love and what’s it for?
Take me back and do me more
Take me back and do me more

I break, I borrow, I live, I lose
I pray, I’m hollowed, I’m dead, confused
I’ll find you

Once you’re here you’re never gone.
Once you’re here you’re never gone.
I fall from in out the cold
A piece of me that I can’t hold

I love you as I lose you more
I break outside this open door
Catch me as I wash away
Catch me as I wash away
Catch me as I wash away

I break, I borrow, I live, I lose,
I pray, I’m hollowed, I’m dead, confused
I break, I borrow, I live, I lose,
I pray, I’m hollowed, I’m dead, confused
I’ll find you

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and my favorite off the August Rush soundtrack. I think it's about losing someone, but trying to find yourself in the process of finding them.
