“Not Quite Lost” & “A Lion’s Heart” by Schaeffer Cox

Not Quite Lost
by Schaeffer Cox
copyright 2015

Verse 1:
It seems like it’s gone but it’s all around
It hides because it’s shy
It’s not quite lost and not quite found
I heard it once it made me cry

You’ll know it when you come across it
It’s never gone for long
Don’t believe it if they say we’ve lost it
Sometimes little things are strong

Verse 2:
There was a boy who had it until he lost it at school
It’s used up so fast on a crowd
He learned so much and still turned out a fool
Can’t hear quite in a world turned up so loud

Verse 3:
There was a girl who made it though she started late
Put it in the food she fed her family
She may just change the world with a pinch on every plate
Burn a little candle for humanity

Verse 4:
There was a man who killed it working day and night
He would find it anywhere it hides
But the thing he killed was in him I guess he saw the light
Felt his true allegiance now he’s chang’n sides

Verse 5:
A happy couple found it screaming in the sheets
Spicy little secrets fun to keep
Church and state is not invited when man and woman meets
Wrap an arm around her, hold her while she sleeps

Verse 6:
There was a little baby who gave it to his mother
It made her blossom like a flower
She gave it back to her son who grew up and gave it to another
It flooded all the world and drowned the Ivory Tower

Verse 7:
There was a cruel banker who said it’s time on earth was over
He made machines to change our nature
He got drunk on power but the common man was sober
He rewrote the past but couldn’t write the future

Verse 8:
I picked a wildflower with my finger and my thumb
Looked into the big blue sky
I brought it to my nose and smelled the smell of what’s to come
This will live forever even if I die

A Lion’s Heart
by Schaeffer Cox

Verse 1:
A man in his home who is ready to die
His family has gathered to tell him goodbye
Takes his son by the hand and tell him he’s proud
Then he slips from this life and he’s wrapped in a shroud

And a man with a lion’s heart
Knows how to live and he knows how to die
And a man with a lion’s heart
Knows how to fight and he knows how to cry
He’s a man with a lion’s heart
He’s a man with a lion’s heart

Verse 2:
A man torn to pieces ’cause he stood for what’s right
Buried alive in a prison where he can’t see daylight
And he cries for his children he won’t see as they grow
But a conscience that’s clear makes his darkened cell glow

Verse 3:
He leads the charge and he takes some blows
But the cost of the battle taught him all that he knows
So he stores up his knowledge for the day of its need
And he’s won half the battle because his mind has been freed

Verse 4:
A baby is born, learns to be brave from his dad
He’ll change the world later, for now he’s a lad
But a day is soon coming when he’ll live with no fear
Lift his voice like a banner that the people can hear

Verse 5:
There’s a season of life when you go off to war
And there’s a season of life when you don’t fight any more
And he knows them apart because he did them both well
And he still has his pride because he never would sell
