I Love You But I'm Lost

Album: Rule The World (2017)
  • Lost in the maze of the back streets I struggled
    Fighting my way through a whole lot of trouble
    Too many people were talking without moving their mouths
    Smell the gaze, smell the lights, ever wondered
    'bout the lies that have stolen my thunder
    In the haze of my mind all the wires were crossed
    I love you but I'm lost

    Complain to the spark of an ember
    To a fire on the 5th of November
    We are straight from the light
    Now we count the dots
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost

    Look at the marks on your arms of colors, how you like to make them pay (how you like to make them pay)
    These are the reasons why your life is not quite what it was
    In a dream, at the edge of a river
    Where they swam, and I watched you shiver
    Came to life in my arms and then turned to dust
    I love you but I'm lost

    Complain to the spark of an ember
    To a fire on the 5th of November
    We are straight from the light
    Now we count the dots
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost

    All we needed was some time
    All we needed was some time
    All we needed was some time
    All we needed was some time

    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost
    I love you but I'm lost

    I love you but I'm lost
