about

Simply a snapshot of the many emotions I felt when someone went missing. Thankfully, our missing person was safe, sound, and found.
Written by Maria Cahill

lyrics

I'm feelling a little fragile now
something in me got broke somehow
that's how it is when you look
for what doesn't want to be found

now my heart's okay, but my min won't allow me
to forget the loss of innocence or the gain of doubt
now my faith in God is long since dead
and my faith in man's just hangin' on by a thread
so when you called up from Washington
it was much too late to right the wrong things done

It's the wrong things done you can never take back
no one's gonna help
when you need to pick up the slack
so to hell with the rest of us, it's all about you
but that kind of thinking's bound to backfire soon

You were famous for your walkabouts
infamous when you walked out
but we thought there might be a chance
to find your body among spring's plants
so at six in the morning
we gathered to plan our search's scope
to find the worst possible end of our hope
all we could find at the close of that week
was fear and sadness, loss and sympathy
so when you called up from Washington
it was much too late to right the wrong things done

Every time the rain came down
I wondered whether it might pound
your lonesome body out there
I figured you were dead or unaware
and tonight the raindrops will fall again
but you are home and safe from them
how can I be safe from you
and all the harm that you might do
because with that single selfish act
you changed what we all know to be fact
so when you called up from Washington
it was much too late to right the wrong things done
