Lost
Jerry Butler Lyrics


I was a sad and lonely girl
All alone in this big world, baby, baby, baby
(Hey, baby)
Lost in a state of misery
Not a soul to comfort me, baby
(Hey, baby)

I couldn't find no help
Didn't know what to do with myself
Oh, I was standing in confusion
So badly disillusioned
When you wrapped your arms around me
I knew love had found me

I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
Oh, I was lost

I thank the Lord that you
Are the one who came to my rescue, baby
(Hey, baby)
Thanks for me and this heart of mine
You came just in time, baby, baby
(Hey, baby)

I couldn't find my way, ooh
Don't you hear what I say, yeah?
Well I was standing in confusion
So badly disillusioned
When you wrapped your arms around me
I knew love had found me

I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost, yeah
(So lost)
But found in the nick of time
Well, I was out here in desperation
No means of communication
Just looking for a sign
Then you threw out your lifeline

Lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost, yes I was
(So lost)
But found in the nick of time
Well, I was out here in desperation
No means of communication
Just looking for a sign
Then you threw out your lifeline

Oh, so lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost, yeah
(So lost)
But found in the nick of time

Could you post more Jerry Butler? Moody Woman or What's the use in Breaking Up or stuff he did for VeeJay. In the meantime, thanks for posting. I've been enjoying all of the Chicago soul you're playing.
