AL KOOPER lyrics - Lost Control

"Lost Control"

You were out thereand I thought that you werefor
The askingI've never been unfairbut I was looking
For a lovethat would be everlasting three years of
Takinganything that I could finda one night stand
- you understandwasn't what I had in mindbelieve
Me that I lost controlI wanted you and that wasall
That really matteredoh, I lost controlI couldn't
Tell this whole worldhad shatteredlover, I could
Seewas what you whipped on meand I lost my control
Now he was your manhe had his faultsbut you done
Your best to stick by himbut then one daybam! bam!
He shot you downwithout anyone around whowould try
Him three years of takinganything that he could

Finda one night stand he didn't understandit
Wasn't what you had in mindand I believe youlost
Controlyou ran to me and it feltlike a whole new
Feelingyou lost controlyou had an open woundand I
Was so good at healingbut all you could seewas the
Good side of meand you lost control no
Considerationwe couldn't help ourselves insideit
Was a sorry situationand he came to me one
Nightand he criedhe said you cut me worse -
Ow!than any woman ever hurt a manI said, my man,
I'm real sorrybut that was not my planand I just
Believe (you see this is what really happened) I
Just lost control - that's what I didI just lost
Controlmy whole world had turned aroundand you
Were runnin' freewhen you came to meoh we tried -
We tried our best
