I love getting lost in a good song. In its music swells. In its lyrics. In the parallel world it creates for you to escape. A straight shot into your own Narnia. And sometimes, if the song touches you just so--if the melody penterates your senses just right--you can get so lost you become found.

"Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I'm in a cross

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserve
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I've tried to cross
And every door I ever tried was locked
Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting till the shine wears off..."

--Lyrics to song "Lost" by Coldplay
