"Lost" as written by Premro Smith and T. Jones....
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the head of this stranger in love

Holding on given up
To another under faded setting sun
And I wonder where I am
Could she run away with him?
So happy and so young
And I stare
As I sing in the lost voice of a stranger in love
Out of time letting go

In another world that spins around for fun
And I wonder where I am
Could he ever ask her why?
So happy and so young
And I stare, but

I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the heart of this stranger in love
Holding on given up
To this other under faded setting sun
And I'm not sure where I am

Would he really turn away?
So happy and so young
And I stare
As I play out the passion of a stranger in love
Letting go of the time
In this other world that spins around for one
And I'm not sure where I am
Would she know it was a lie?
So happy and so young
And I stare
But

I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the soul of this stranger in love
No control over one
To the other under faded setting sun
And I don't know where I am

Should he beg her to forgive?
So happy and so young
And I stare
As I live out the story of a stranger in love
Waking up going on
In the other world that spins around undone
And I don't know where I am
Should she really say goodbye?
So happy and so young
And I stare
But

I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I got lost in someone else.

    General CommentWhat a fantastic to listen to in bed and dozing off to sleep. I' got lost in this song so many times - enchanting, haunting and ultimately isolating. This song has music-a-fied the feeling of being lost in yourself and the world.

    General CommentFor me it was pretty obvious the first time I heard the song. It's about giving up your dreams , sensitivity and poetry when you fall in love with a girl. it's replaced by the inner world of the girl. So he can't find himself, he's changed and lost his poetry and he got lost in the inner world of the girl.

    General CommentDefinitely the best song from the record. I found the CD at the library and that first track introduced me to one of the best bands ever. The Cure rules! :)

    General CommentI think Robert Smith has just discovered that her wife has been out with another man (this other). The all album is about this terrible fight he's got to lead in order to have her come back.

    General Commenti think this song is about not knowing what your doing anymore. like everything seems pointless. and about thinking how is was, but something changes and now your unsure.

    General Commentone of the cure best songs and it's pretty easy to play =), if you listen carefully to this song while everything is silent it really absorbs you, really it's powerful this could easily have been a succesful single
