I began writing “Lost in the Night" while in an airplane, over rural Nebraska one February.
I was struck by the perfect squares of farmland that, even in winter, were visible through the snow – different colors of white, grey, brown, divided by black ice of water and flashes of evergreen. I started thinking about how our lives were like that – all different geometric pieces, like stained glass or a cubist painting.
At the same time, one of my best friends was going through a really tough break-up. She desperately wanted to cling to the possibility of her relationship, but somewhere along the way, it seemed she had lost her ability to love herself.
"Lost in the Night" came out of the melding of those ideas.
It is a song of finding hope within pain, of believing there can be love tomorrow even while in the darkest night.
