The Place Where Lost Things Go

  • Do you ever lie
    Awake at night?
    Just between the dark
    And the morning light
    Searching for the things
    You used to know
    Looking for the place
    Where the lost things go

    Do you ever dream
    Or reminisce?
    Wondering where to find
    What you truly miss
    Well maybe all those things
    That you love so
    Are waiting in the place
    Where the lost things go

    Memories you've shed
    Gone for good you feared
    They're all around you still
    Though they've disappeared
    Nothing's really left
    Or lost without a trace
    Nothing's gone forever
    Only out of place

    So maybe now the dish
    And my best spoon
    Are playing hide and seek
    Just behind the moon
    Waiting there until
    It's time to show
    Spring is like that now
    Far beneath the snow
    Hiding in the place
    Where the lost things go

    Time to close your eyes
    So sleep can come around
    For when you dream you'll find
    All that's lost is found
    Maybe on the moon
    Or maybe somewhere new
    Maybe all you're missing lives inside of you

    So when you need her touch
    And loving gaze
    Gone but not forgotten
    Is the perfect phrase
    Smiling from a star
    That she makes glow
    Trust she's always there
    Watching as you grow
    Find her in the place
    Where the lost things go Writer/s: Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman
