I Wasn’t Looking For you

When I left my home in the valley, I left everything that I knew
I lost my way through the wicked and strange while I wasn’t looking for you

Only Time knew that I’d be here, feeling the summer breeze in the fall
I dropped to my knees like the densest of leaves while I wasn’t looking for you

My heart’s a carousel, yours is a silver bell
Both hold an enchanted tune
That sings like a lullaby, chills like an autumn night
Leaves us refreshed and renewed
You were a light I never thought that I’d find
‘Cus I wasn’t looking for you

I struggled to find resolution, the weight was unbearably cruel
I trudged along singing simpler songs while I wasn’t looking for you

If I could forgive the faults of my childhood, I’d never gasp at the salted beach air
But the sting in my eyes it was never a surprise while I wasn’t looking for you

This here’s a chapter, it’s not ever after
But someday it will turn into
A handwritten history book, well placed upon a shelf
Gracing the entire room
You were a light I never thought that I’d find
‘Cus I wasn’t looking for you
