"Lost" as written by Katie Tunstall and Martin Terefe....
Following my nose
A detective with no lead
Only my dreams know
What's got into me
I run by your side
But I'm out of breath
Lower than the sea
And it's killing me
And it's killing me

[Chorus]
If I choose to go with the way I'm feeling
Does it really mean that's the way it is
Is it just a trick that my eyes are playing on my mind
Following the passage of least resistance
Following the pack just to pass the gate
It's a little late for a change of plan
Don't you think

I got lost following you
Following you

There's a camaraderie
In a number for my chest
Do this and do that
And forget the rest
But as the tide retreats
It's showing me the shore
There's danger going deeper
But I can't be here anymore
Can't be here anymore

[Chorus]

I got lost following you
What did I do that for
Am I an idiot
What did I do that for
Am I an idiot
What did I do that, do that for

I run by your side
But I'm out of breath
And it's killing me
And it's killing me

[Chorus]

I got lost following you
Time could have stopped
And I never knew
I got lost following you
Following you

    General CommentLove this song, I kept going back to it 'cause of the lyrics. I think its about following someone in life cause you're so attached even if it hurts you. Eventually you're so blinded that you're Lost from following them around. Pretty deep lyrics

    General CommentI have no idea why this song has such few comments.
    To me, this is KT's highest point of her compositions, this song is so beautiful and so emotional and so well played and written and planned. It's a definite masterpiece and it makes me want to cry all the time I listen to it, just because it's so beautiful.
    That being said, to me the lyrics speak about a harmful relationship, wether love or friendship. It's about being with a person that is always testing you and expanding your ideas or danger, loyalty and the ability of hurting you without you leaving. To me, she wrote this about the same relationship she talks about in "Difficulty".

    General CommentGetting in way too over your head...

    Could be a destructive and/or abusive relationship, an addiction gone too far, or a mental illness not being dealt with (such as, in my biased case, an eating disorder). Or your biggest goals and dreams starting to seem meaningless and disappointing. Disillusionment.

    You're so "comfortable" with the convoluted insanity of what you've been doing that you don't know how to stop, or whether you should, or if you even *would*.

    While a small part of you realizes it will inevitably end in death (addiction, mental illness, abuse) or irreparable damage to your body, your mind, your future...it's like you're afraid to change it because you're so used to it. Can't tell reality from what you *want* to be reality.

    Can't understand how it got so wrong.
