Lost And Insecure

Jen and I are totally loving The Fray these days.  The hit song “You Found Me” is so catchy that we were hooked from the start.  And when the TV show LOST played the song for their new show promo, it really stuck with us (perfect synergy with the show and song).

Now Jen and I debated what the song could be about.  I thought it was maybe about someone feeling beaten up and left for dead.  Jen thought it was more psychological.  Turns out Jen was closer to the truth.  The song is actually spiritual in nature and the band is made up of strong believers.

Here are the lyrics:

YOU FOUND ME

I found God on the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west was all but won
All alone smoking His last cigarette
I said where You been, He said ask anything
Where were You when everything was falling apart
All my days were spent by a telephone
That never rang and all I needed was a call
That never came to the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me

In the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who’s ever known
Who I am who I’m not and who I want to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me

Early morning the city breaks and I’ve been calling for years and years
You never left me no messages, You never send me no letters
You got some kind of nerve taking all I want

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, where were You, where were You
Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me
Why’d You have to wait to find me, to find me

And here is what the lead singer had to say about the song:

“You Found Me is a tough song for me. Its about the disappointment, the heart ache, the let down that comes with life. Sometimes you’re let down, sometimes you’re the one who lets someone else down. It gets hard to know who you can trust, who you can count on. This song came out of a tough time, and I’m still right in the thick of it. There’s some difficult circumstances my family and friends have been going through over the past year or so and can be overwhelming. It wears on me. It demands so much of my faith to keep believing, keep hoping in the unseen. Sometimes the tunnel has a light at the end, but usually they just look black as night. This song is about that feeling, and the hope that I still have, buried deep in my chest.”
