Lost

Tags: 

Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

I love Elizabeth's lyrics and have enjoyed collaboration with her a few times. These lyrics, which she originally envisioned as a punk rock song called out to me.

I've been MIA the past couple of weeks, so I'll try to make up some of that lost time soon.

THANKS Colleen! Always an honor to have my words put to your lovely music!!! - Liz

PS and yes when I wrote this in my head I totally wrote it as a punk rock song and now after hearing Colleen's music I think what was I thinking!!!!!

Lyrics: 

V1
Torn fabric
Ragged threads
Worn heartstrings
Bleeding red

Lost gardens
Heavy stones
Paths ending
Growing cold

PC1
Bleeding red
Growing cold
Love grows old

C1
Waterfalls cascade
Turbines churn
Shadows are cast
Love clings to past

V2
Dark corners
Hidden wrongs
Thick cobwebs
Sunlight gone

False doorways
Secret rooms
Damaged souls
Broken truths

PC2
Sunlight gone
Broken truths
Love ends too soon

C2
Black clouds billow
Cyclones turn
Life spins too fast
Love can not last

B
Trying to hold on
Through winds of change
Trying to stay warm
In pouring rain
Trying to believe

Trying to find love
After you have gone

And ends too soon
Love ends too soon

C1
Waterfalls cascade
Turbines churn
Shadows are cast
Love clings to past

C2
Black clouds billow
Cyclones turn
Life spins too fast
Love can not last



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I love to sing along - not out loud, that would be cruel, but in my head I harmonize quite well with you. LOL
A very tender melody and as always, your vocals are outstanding, as are kahlos' lyrics.

A very touching song. I can't imagine this getting the punk treatment. It needs to be sung - well, like this. The multiple references to turning - cyclones, turbines, spin - make me think there's hope for the protagonist. Everything comes around eventually...

A very pretty new song you should both be proud of! colgoo has created a beautiful melody and sings it so awesomely! Liz's lyrics are nothing short of superb! I just love, Love, LOVE those short but profound lines and very interesting to have two different choruses! I especially love this sentiment, "Love clings to past"! Congrats to you both on an excellent collaboration!

Yes, it's the biggest cliche, but I like how simple yet effective this is. I like the PC's, how words are repeated there, works so well. Nicely done you both!

Concise, powerful lyrics and heartfelt performance. Love "Trying to stay warm in pouring rain"! Beautiful song of heartbreak and loneliness.
