Original Song – “Lost and Found”

Lost and Found is a fictional story about a husband who lost the love he shared with his wife and how he found it again.  He was reading the classified ads at breakfast with his wife and saw an advertisement: “It read lost and found, And in the paper, My love was found…If you want your love, Call the followin’ number…It was my own phone number…And I gave my wife a kiss, Honey I missed that tenderness, That I knew when we were young so long ago, Her touch caught my attention, She didn’t even have to mention, The love that I had found again inside…”  It’s a sweet song about focusing on what’s important in life, especially areas where we may have become complacent over time.  The moral of the song is to make sure we don’t neglect the most important things that matter most to our hearts!

I recorded my original song “Lost And Found” on Set 3 in 1996, and it tells the fictional story of a husband who finds the love he’s lost for his wife through a ‘Lost and Found’ ad his wife places in the paper for him to read. It’s a sweet song that turned out pretty well ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
