Where have I been stranded, Excuse me sir, do you have the time? I'm lost here, been abandoned, I'm just one of those who are left behind. Then I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home, I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home alright. A sign to alert me, Excuse me sir, but do you know why? A sign that is working To point me there, to get me by. Then I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home, I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home alright. Where have I been stranded? Excuse me sir, can you tell me why? Then I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home, I see this sign on the road And I pray a little more that I will get home alright.

Coffee Girl 02:53
I spoke to the coffee girl Without a sound Said that I could not afford This luxury I found I smiled at the coffee girl And my eyes looked down To see a pocket full of change That I owe to her now If one thing's for sure I'm never gonna make it home If I spill what I think out of my head If one thing's for sure By the time that I get home I will turn around and go right back again... I smiled at the coffee girl She said with her eyes "Well here's your cup of joe, No, I don't have time" So I'll go to the coffee shop Just to say 'Hi' I hope they do not mind it When I pass them by If one thing's for sure I'm never gonna make it home If I spill what I think out of my head If one thing's for sure By the time that I get home I will turn around and go right back again...

Get Lost 03:29
I would get lost in the grass and mud And dirty up my shoes Wandering around on days With nothing else to do Following the stream right to the pond, That's where it ends, And I would always find my way Back home again. I would poke a stick in to the ground That nobody ever claimed Make friends with the passersby And give them a name I was always running from the creatures Hiding from me then And I would always find my way Back home again. Step inside this world that lives alone All on it's own Others call it wilderness But I would call it home So beware of a box of things That I had buried there I found my way back home And left it bare. So if you find a box I left behind Buried in the ground I found my way back home, All safe and sound...

I've got a question for you, Is that what I'm suppose to do Or am I just doing wrong? Well, I pictured your face today Once I thought about your name And I'll think of you all night long. I don't feel so good (I don't feel so good) About the things that you said I should. I just feel so good about you, Feel so good about you... I will never understand how You caught me in your hand, But at the end of the day, you do. You do it without words, You do it without sound And you're pulling me in too... Is it such a crime (Is it such a crime?) To be the next one to fall in line? And, keep falling into you, Keep falling into you. Well, I'll keep you in mind The next time that I can find The courage to pretend. I just cannot be the one that you see As only just a friend. Is it such a crime (Is it such a crime?) To be the next one to fall in line? And, keep falling into you, Keep falling into you. Yeah! I don't feel so good (I don't feel so good) About the things that you said I should. I just feel so good about you, Feel so good about you... (yeah)

I know it's not what you expect of me And I wasn't thinking clearly, To act this out of line I guess I'm glad you're here to fix this mess. And it was all okay, thanks to you! I had you, you had me. I know it's not what you expect of me To put on a show that's all for free Well I drank a bit too much by now I should have seen it anyhow And it was all okay, thanks to you! I had you, you had me. I know it's not what you expect of me (repeat) I know it's not what you expect of me I wasn't thinking clearly I drank a bit too much it seems Now I can't seem to fall asleep It was all okay, thanks to you! I had you, you had me, It was all okay, thanks to you! (La De Da's)
