I'm Lost Lyrics and music composition by William Metts

I'm lost. I'm Lost. The train was gonna crash so I jumped off.
Didn't seem to matter how much I whined,
cried, railed and scoffed.
This damned ol' planet just kept on spinning
like the Dervish whirl.
So I got lost. Sooo Lost. Lost in this crazy ol' world.
I can tell you where the sun comes up
and point to where it goes down
Still sometimes I get so lost
walking round this little ol' town.
When I get stopped by some poor soul
asking which way to go
The best I can do is give a blank stare and say
"Hell if I know."
I know the way to Betty Lou's house,
I know the number on her telephone
Her favorite perfume, the color of her eyes
and why I'm sitting here all alone.
When it comes to knowing
what a woman needs,
I just ain't so smart.
I get afraid of the dark and run home scared
when I try to find the way to her heart
I put my bed with the head against the wall
so when I go to sleep at night
wake up in the morning, depending how I feel,
I can roll left or I can roll right.
Either way I may lose but whatever I choose
at least it's mine and I'm free.
Please don’t ask for advice on the path
I'll say..."Don't ask me."

I have been playing guitar and singing for nearly fifty years now. I Started with American Folk and Blues tunes and finger- style guitar. Had a run in with a Classic Rock band for 6 years or so and I sure was glad when that ended. I spent 15 years playing in nursing homes doing standards from the 30’s and 40’s. Now I mostly write. You will see a bit of all the above in my songs. I hope you like. ... more
