From the recording What We Really Mean When We Say Love
When You Found Me
© 2017 Michael R. J. Roth
They should’ve named a ghost town after me.
I could've been a hero
On a black and white TV,
Where I just stood my ground
While every falling star just fell
Like ashes all around.
Yeah, that was me.
And when you found me,
the ruins of my life lay all around me.
And when you came to me
I saw an angel walking on a troubled sea.
You reached into my heart
and rescued me.
In a cafe, in Santa Fe, New Mexico,
The dust and sweat of a working day
Falling off my clothes,
You walked up to me
With just a cup of coffee
And the music of a radio.
That’s all I know.
When I saw you in the morning light,
I knew the reason for the morning
and the meaning of the light.
When you kissed me in the dark,
I understood without a doubt
the reason for my heart
Was in your smile.
