Some lyrics for him

I think I lost it

Let me know if you come across it

Let me know if I let it fall

Along a back road somewhere

Money can't replace it

No memory can erase it

And I know I'm never gonna find

Another one to compare

Give me some love to fill me up

Give me some time give me some stuff

Give me a sign give me some kind of reason

Are you heavy enough to make me stay

I feel like I might blow away

I thought I was in heaven

But I was only dreamin'

I think I lost it

Let me know if you come across it

Let me know if I let it fall

Along a back road somewhere

Money can't replace it

No memory can erase it

And I know I'm never gonna find

Another one to compare

I just wanna live the life I please

I don't want no enemies

I don't want nothin' if I have to fake it

Never take nothin' don't belong to me

Everything's paid for nothing free

If I give my heart

Will you promise not to break it

I think I lost it

Let me know if you come across it

Let me know if I let it fall

Along a back road somewhere

Money can't replace it

No memory can erase it

And I know I'm never gonna find

Another one to compare

Money can't replace it

No memory can erase it

And I know I'm never gonna find

Another one to compare

    Homelessness breaks my heart. NOWHERE TO CALL HOME. Think about it as it applies to you. The "what if" in these times, is very much closer.

    This evokes such a feeling of compassion and empathy ("There but for the grace of God go I"). It fits well into the Loneliness theme. Very eloquent.
