[Verse 1]
Please don't see just a girl caught up in dreams and fantasies.
Please see me reaching out for someone I can see.
Take my hand, let's see where we wake up tomorrow.
Best laid plans; sometimes are just a one night stand.
I'd be damned; Cupid's demanding back his arrow.
So let's get drunk on our tears and...

[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young.
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run.
Searching for meaning...
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

[Verse 2]
Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy.
'Woe is me' if we're not careful turns into reality.
Don't you dare let all these memories bring you sorrow.
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer.
Turn the page; maybe we'll find a brand new ending.
Where we're dancing in our tears and...

[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young.
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run.
We're searching for meaning...
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

[Bridge]
I thought I saw you out there crying...
I thought I heard you call my name...
I thought I heard you out there crying...
We're just the same...

[Chorus]
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young.
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run.
We're searching for meaning...
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
Are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark
