  • I went to the far right
    Then I went to the far left
    I've tried to recover
    My center of gravity

    I guess I'm lost
    I had to pay the cost
    The thing that hurt me most
    Was that I wasn't lost

    I came from the Midwest
    Then I went to the Far East
    I tried to discover
    My own identity

    I guess I'm lost
    I paid a handsome cost
    The thing that hurt the most
    Was that I wasn't lost
    I wasn't lost

    No, I wasn't lost
    It was a different feeling
    A mix of lucidity, and craziness
    But I wasn't lost, you believed me

    I was right
    And I've got the right
    To choose my own life
    Like a full circle

    Life is a circle, life is a circle
    Life is a circle, life is a circle
    Life is a circle, life is a circle
    Life is a circle, life is a circle

    Aquilo que mais magoa
    É que eu não estava perdida
    Aquilo que mais magoa
    É que eu não estava perdida

    Guess I'm lost
    I had to pay the cost
    The thing that hurt me most
    Was that I wasn't lost
    I wasn't lost Writer/s: Madonna Ciccone, Mirwais Ahmadzai
