Lost It In The Sun
   ------The Gathering Field

Guess I was not thinking about anything
I guess I was just coasting along
Don't know how I ever let her get away
I guess that I just lost it in the sun

Sorrowful, my heart is like a desert plain
I'm a nomad drifting alone
Broken hearted's looking like my middle name
I guess that I just lost it in the sun

I took a plane from Worcester back to Pittsburgh
Memories in my head like bullets in a gun
On the sea of love we ran into an iceberg
Through our anchor down then lost it in the sun
Lord have mercy

Spectral visions danced upon the cabin wall
And showed me all the things I'd done
Got sidetracked by an honest woman thin and tall
Saw Jesus hand then lost it in the sun

We made love to guarantee our emptiness
And after she said, "Least that's done."
I could have sworn she had a knack for tenderness
I guess that she just lost it in the sun

I took a plane from Worcester back to Pittsburgh
Memories in my head like bullets in a gun
One the sea of love we ran into an iceberg
Threw our anchor down and then lost it in the sun

We lost it in the sun
And only ones are only temporary
You can place the blame on me
Lasting love is over rated
Guess I circumnavigated all that once meant anything to me
Neath the blue sky we did run
Least until we lost it in the sun
Lord have mercy

I guess I was not thinking about anything
I guess I was just coasting along
I don't know how I ever let her get away from me
I guess that I just lost her in the sun . . .
