What Happened?
words and music by Stephen Barling

what happened
my thoughts
all slip away
fallen into drops
fallen into pools
gather in my soul
and I am swimming
ripples on the beach crash softly
but the tide does not remember
wipe the tears from eyes the waves carry
to shores we may know never

we're lost
between a past we cannot find
and a future that is never mind
living only steps behind
we stay lost
all we have is now
all we are is here
if we make the moments ours
then all time disappears
and in the now I know I love you
and the future forgets all weakness
we'll leave the past and rise above you
and we'll share in the glory
of birth
and life
and light
and love
