I Got Lost


Fell from grace, right through the cracks
Emotionally raw rock song written on a two string guitar

I lost my way
I lost my path
Lost my bearings
Mislaid the map
Looked for a star
But the night was black
Fell from grace
Right through the cracks

I didn’t gain the world
But I lost my soul
Not asking for your pity
Just your hand to hold

I got lost, I got lost
See that face in the mirror?
That isn’t me
I got lost, I got lost
Somewhere out there is the person
That I forgot how to be

I gave my all
I bought the shirt
I played the role
Until it hurt
I walked the walk
I towed the line
I stood for truth
And learned to lie

Thought I could save the world
And play a starring role
That dream became so brittle
And much too sharp to hold

I got lost…

Pull up the roots
And start again
Tear down these walls
They’ve been condemned
Throw every dream
Upon the fire
Don’t waste one tear
For what’s left behind

I got lost…
