Story

My dad always said he chased mom until she "caught" him. Many times it takes a change in perspective to truly see.

Lyrics

At the age of two, he didn’t know the word “escape” But when he found the playpen had a missing slat He calmly climbed outside and ambled down the street ’Til his frightened mama pulled him to her side: He didn’t know he was lost until she found him Didn’t know how far away he strayed Didn’t know he was lost Didn’t know he was lost He didn’t know he was lost until she found him Coming back home from a camping trip He was glad the town survived The big storm, the fire, the flood last night Searching for his dad he was startled to be Wrapped up in his sobbing father’s arms He didn’t know he was lost until he found him… Her blue-eyed smile and tender, thoughtful ways Led him down a long-forgotten trail He was surprised by the tears in his eyes When he saw her behind the wedding veil, He whispered, I didn’t know I was lost until you found me Didn’t know how far away I strayed Didn’t know I was lost Didn’t know I was lost I didn’t know I was lost until you found me Until you found me.
