Can't you see I'm lost and I don't know why,
No, how could I?
We were blinded by these places new to us,
You lost our trust.

For a life you were told,
Would hold a brighter future for us all,
But we did fall from grace that day
And we won't stay, no we won't stay.

So then we found ourselves alone;
You bought a house but not a home,
And all the friends we left behind
Will (They'll) never see us as we were at the time.

Can't you see I'm lost and I don't know why,
No, how could I?
From Herbert Street to Colonel Baker's field,
I lost sense of what was real.

I was saved by the sight of Smokey sleeping soundly by my side
While Jasmin cried
At the young and tender age of three,
She meant everything to me.

Dear mother please just take my hand,
And in due time we'll understand.
Don't let it keep you up at night;
I couldn't go back even if I tried.

You offered me the world but I just wished you hadn't lied,
And all my photographs wont bring them back, they only make me cry
Because the change was much too hard for me,
But I still love you so.
I just wanted you to know I do before I had to go.
