#SongLyricSunday #RocktoberMusicFest : Lost




Time again for Song Lyric Sunday! 


The Idea was formed by Helen @ This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time. She has presented us with the word prompt of LOST for this week.


With this in mind, for today’s #RocktoberMusicFest song selection, we’re going to take a step back into the 70s and hear from and English Rock Band, 10cc

Wikipedia tells us this about 10cc:

10cc are an English rock band founded in Stockport, England, who achieved their greatest commercial success in the 1970s. The band initially consisted of four musicians – Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme – who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the name "10cc" in 1972. 10cc featured two songwriting teams, one "commercial" and one "artistic". Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-songwriters, who created most of the band's accessible songs. By way of contrast, Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematically inspired writing.

Every member of 10cc was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer and producer, and the writing teams frequently switched partners, so that Godley/Gouldman or Creme/Stewart compositions were not uncommon. After Godley and Creme left the band in 1976, Gouldman and Stewart were the main creative forces behind 10cc. Stewart left the band after 1995 and Gouldman continues to lead a touring version of 10cc.

I struggled to find more information about today’s song choice, but pretty much all I can find is that it was released as the B-side to “Welcome to Paradise” in 1992, but it was not released on either the Meanwhile or Mirror, Mirror albums.

"Lost In Love"

A far bit beyond this place
All the stars have been cast
You may try to resist the pace
But it's happening too fast
The desire is so strong
Yeah you got to concede
There's no way to escape from the trap
We are slaves to our needs

And we're lost in love
(Y'say) We're lost in our love and we can't find a way
And we're lost in love
(Say it) We're lost in our love and we're destined to stay together
Whoa, heart to heart, forever
Whoa, heart to heart, together
Whoa, heart to heart
Heart to heart

The stage has been set tonight
And the die has been cast
Curtain up and the music begins
Oh the audience cares???
Tragedy is feelin'
For the rest of your days
Nothing will ever compare to the thrill of the stage

And we're lost in love
(I'm sayin') We're lost in our love and we can't find a way (baby, baby)
Lost in love (no, no)
(Sayin') We're lost in our love and we're destined to stay together
Whoa, heart to heart, forever
Whoa, heart to heart, together
Whoa, heart to heart
Heart to heart

Curtain will fall at the end of the day
Guardian angels will kill for their pay
Impossible dreams have to end
Let the crowd disappear, we've got nothing to fear

We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we can't find a way
We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Lost in love
Lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Lost in love
Lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Lost in love
Lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Together, whoa
We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we can't find a way
We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Together, whoa
We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we can't find a way
We're lost in love
We're lost in our love and we're destined to stay
Together, whoa
[Repeat to fade]

Writer(s): Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman

    1. If I'm being honest, it was new to me as well. I'm more familiar with 'I'm Not in Love' and 'The Things we do for Love'.

  2. I didn't know this song but I thought I had heard of 10cc so I looked up some of their other stuff. I'm Not In Love is the one I know. Good pick for today. Thanks!

      Yeah, this one was new to me as well. But I like learning about new to me stuff so it's all good :)

  3. Great song... not quite as ethereal as "I'm not in love." Has a Pink Floyd vide to it. Good choice!

    1. I can see how they were struggling to keep the band together. This was one of the more recent tunes. It was interesting to learn more about the band.
