"Lost"
(Morrissey/Spencer Cobrin)

 

These words are transcribed without permission the way they appear in Morrissey's "íThe Best Of!" album. Additions to the printed lyrics are in darker text while omissions are striken out.

Jet trails in the sky
leave one word behind
a hand bangs into sand
a name
and we all understand
everybody's lost
but they're pretending they're not lost
oh, lost
Jet trails in the sky
leave one thought behind
a hand bangs into sand a name
and we all understand
everybody's Lost
but they're pretending they're not lost
oh, lost
So if I see you
and I tell you
how I've watched you
I'm just Lost
So if I see you
And I tell you
how I've watched you
don't make fun of me later
'cause I'm just lost
If I see you
and I tell you
how I've watched you
don't make fun of me later
'cause I'm just lost
If I see you
and I tell you
how I've watched you
don't make fun of me later
'cause I'm just lost 1
(lost... lost... lost...
lost... lost... lost...)

 

1 On the 2000 North American and Latin American legs of the Oye Esteban tour Morrissey sometimes stretched this line to "believe me I'm lost".
