Lost in life
<br>
<br>Laying on my bed late one night
<br>Staring up into the quiet darkness
<br>I stayed awake with every beat
<br>As usual I ask myself the question
<br>Who am I and what Iíve become
<br>
<br>Chorus:
<br>Iím just lost, lost in life, my life
<br>Not you, him nor her can help me
<br>Much as youíre there, youíre not
<br>Leave, leave me alone and let me be
<br>Lost in life, lost for life, lost forever
<br>
<br>For everything that I have loved
<br>I have hurt, ruin and torture them
<br>I am so sorry for what Iíve done
<br>Wasnít meant for any harm or pain
<br>Even if you do not even know me
<br>
<br>Every night I try to think of my life
<br>What Iíve done and what should have been done
<br>Did I regret what I did, was it for the best
<br>Every choice I make, came an enemy
<br>For every crisis gone came ten more
<br>
<br>(Chorus)
<br>
<br>I have friends, lots and lots of them
<br>How many would be glad to listen
<br>Some may even say I am helpless
<br>For not wanting, getting any help
<br>Who are they and who you to say
<br>
<br>Would they still be my friend if I share with them
<br>It is a question I have to ask myself every night
<br>Thereís nothing you can do nor would you comprehend
<br>Thereís one reason why I wouldnít let you come close
<br>Cause I want keep our friendship so please understand
<br>
<br>(Chorus)
<br>
<br>Sometimes some other late night
<br>I just want to sit, sit here for hours
<br>Stare into the wall and disappear
<br>Then morning came to wake me
<br>There I am again as the day ends
<br>
<br>What do I do, what can I do
<br>Where do I go from here
<br>Where did I go wrong
<br>Why does this happen
<br>I hate it but thereís nothing I can do but live
<br>
<br>
<br>(Chorus)
<br>
<br>Grateful for all the help Iíve got
<br>Thankful for just beginning there
<br>Then again I am not worth your pain
<br>So why even try to give your help
<br>In the end it will not mean a thing
<br>
<br>Iím just lost, lost in life, my life
<br>Lost, lost in life, my life

<br>Please give me your honest truth. I would really appreciate it. I am really getting the hang of writing.
<br>
<br>It's HARD at times though...
<br>

wow, I hope this one's not all personal experience, Nelly.
<br>
<br>I was going to say at first that it may be a little long, cuz I was thinking of how radio likes their "three-minute" cuts. But, then I realized how closed-minded that was. You write what you want, how you want, no matter what. :) A 14-minute song could still grab you. ;)
<br>
<br>And I do like how you portray one lying in bed at night, reflecting on life. Sounds awfully familiar. ;)

<br>Nash...
<br>
<br>I tried cutting it short. I slept on it for a few days and finally decided to post it. But I wouldn't comment on the personal experiences though. ;)
<br>
<br>I still intend and planning to cut it down... ;) lol JUST don't really know how yet.
<br>
<br>Thanks for the comments though. Appreciate it. ;)
