Song Lyrics Sunday: “Adam Levine – Lost Stars”

Lyrics:[Verse 1]
Please don’t see just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me reachin’ out for someone I can’t see[Pre-Chorus]
Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demandin’ back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears and[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning, but are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?[Verse 2]
Who are we? Just a spec of dust within the galaxy
Woe is me if we’re not careful turns into reality
Don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears and[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning, but are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?

I thought I saw you out there crying, ooh
And I thought I heard you call my name, yeah
And I thought I heard you out there crying, oh
Just the same, oh, yeah

[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning, but are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?

[Bridge]
I thought I saw you out there crying, ooh
And I thought I heard you call my name, yeah
And I thought I heard you out there crying, oh
Just the same, oh, yeah

[Outro]
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

Heavy Shadows

hidden truths,

hidden secrets,

a burden on my soul.

heavy shadows,

coals in a Christmas stocking

buried in the corners

of my subconscious.

heavy shadows,

hidden truths,

hidden secrets,

left unopened,

left buried,

left unspoken.
