"Lost at Sea" as written by and Ryan Tedder Anton Zaslavski....
I was a boat drifting out into sea.
I had nothing but pieces an thoughts of a hope that you would see me.
I was a stone thrown away from land.
With thousands and thousands of miles away from reaching your hand.

The waves have crashes upon,
The logs that you were trying to walk along.
And in my head I heard them play a song for you and me

The waves have crashed upon
The logs that you were trying to step along.
And in my head I heard them play a song for you and me

Lets get lost at sea.
Where they will never find us
The stars at night to guide us

Lost at sea
Where they will never find us
The stars at night to guide us

I was a boat drifting out into sea
I had nothing but pieces an thoughts of a hope that you would see me.
I was a stone thrown away from land
With thousands and thousands of miles away
From reaching your hand

The waves have crashes upon,
The logs that you were trying to walk along
And in my head I heard them play a song for you and me

The waves have crashed upon
The logs that you were trying to step along
And in my head I heard them play a song for you and me

Lets get lost at sea
Where they will never find us
The stars at night to guide us

Lost at sea
Where they will never find us
The stars at night to guide us

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being friend zoned or being in-love with someone who doesn’t love you back.

    “I was a boat drifting out into sea
    I had nothing but pieces of thoughts of the hope that you would see me
    I was a stone’s throw away from land
    But thousands and thousands of miles away from reaching your hand”

    ------In this part, he is talking about how he is so close to the person of interest (from this point on I’ll just assume it’s a girl) and yet at the same time, he’s still very far from that person as well. He is probably the girl’s friend and yet he wants to be more.------
    “The waves that crashed upon
    The rocks that you were trying to walk along
    And in my head I heard them play a song
    For you and me”

    ------In this part, the girl is in some sort of struggle – possibly even a bad relationship that she is trying to fix. However, the singer can only see them together. He probably believes that it’d be better if they were together.------
    “Let’s get lost at sea
    Where they will never find us
    Got stars at night to guide us
    Lost at sea
    Where they will never find us
    Got stars at night to guide us, yeah”
    ------He is saying that he doesn’t care, and that he wants to be with her no matter what. He wants them to fall in love and not have to care about anyone else. That some mystical force (the stars) will guide them.------
