Thursday's Lyrics for Thought: The Avett Brothers

Find my Love
by The Avett Brothers (The Gleam, 2006)

What makes it easy to treat people bad?
Some things you say and you can’t take ‘em back
What makes it easy to run from the past
Like a child runs from the dark?

Which is the poison and which is the wine?
The scent and the colors are so much alike
And how much of each will it take to decide
When you’re at the table alone?

Where do you go when it’s perfectly clear?
You might find your way, but you won’t find it here
What makes it easy to sound so sincere
When you know that you don’t care?

Love gets lost
Love gets lost

Find my love
Find my love

How can you tell when goodbye means goodbye?
Not just for now, for the rest of your life?
How can you stand there with love in your eyes
And still be walking away?

Love gets lost
Love gets lost

Find my love
Find my love

Find my love
Find my love
