Greg Masiello / Darden Smith

What is it that I had when I was a child
I would talk to the moon I could make him smile
I knew what made the sun shine and the green grass grow
Some things you don’t have to learn some things you just know

I think it’s soul
I think it’s soul

What is it about a song that makes you want to cry
What is it that makes me think that I know how to fly
What is it makes a man get paper and a pen
And write down all the darkest secrets that he holds within

Sometimes I think that I must’ve lost my way
I can’t find the feeling I had back in the day
I miss the curve of a woman and her hand upon my neck
I miss the way her smell would hit me and make my life a wreck

So what is it I’m missing, what is it I need
Could it still be hiding somewhere inside of me
If I look a little deeper beyond this great divide
What is it that waits there, what could I find?
