Song lyrics:

Verse 1:
I’m feeling lost, I’m feeling low
My heart is heavy and my mind is slow
I’m searching for something to hold onto
A light to guide me, a way to move on

But I know, I’ll find my way
I’ll keep on moving, day by day
I’ll lift my head and chase the sun
Until I find the strength to carry on
