1. Lost Life

From the recording Of Love and Loss

Michael: "I had this chord progression playing through my delay pedal. It brought me to tears before I even wrote the lyrics or the bridge. Jason was coming over in an hour for practice, so I just had a go writing verse/chorus so we'd have something to work on. The bridge came last. I know what it is and where it came from. The whole thing is DCFC-inspired: one of Summer's and my favorite bands. We saw them in NorCal on my b'day in 2009 - one of the best days of my life. The bridge is the sound, the interval of notes I know I'll hear when get there -The Other Place, ya know? - I can picture her pulling up in her banged-up blue Prius at the celestial kiss n ride and taking me home at last. It wasn't any kind of an accident finding those notes..."


I still remember the day that we met I'm still not anywhere over it yet I remember the day that you died I only wanna be with you on The Other Side And somehow Someday Somewhere Some way It was a beautiful life that we had And I miss you, now, baby Oh, so bad. The Light's gone out And I ache like thunder I still need you And I just wonder if... Somehow Someday Somewhere Some way... Ah! Life's so lonely without you But I bet I haven't even seen the worst of it yet All the love inside you It saved me And I know That wherever you are now sweetheart Is where I must go So, somehow Someday Somewhere Some way Ah!
