Phone call at 4 am, they said you were missing, I threw on my coat, grabbed a flashlight, and ran outside into the dark night. I knew search and rescue was hot on your trail but none of them knew you, so how could they know where to look or where to start.
So I ran out into the forest, to the dark place I knew you'd be. Just followed the trail that you left me, of broken branches and broken lives. Broken hearts and broken minds.
The path took me deep into the heart of the woods. It took me far deeper than I'd ever been, until I was miles from all that I knew, and that's where I found you. I found you in the forest.
Here we are, alone at last, surrounded by the dark, the past and I don't know which way I came. My lights went out, maps burst in flames. So here I am, as lost as you, don't know if anything is true so lay with me in the trees. Don't mind the rain, try not to freeze. Now that I have rescued you, please tell me who will rescue us.
