Leo Sayer – Lost Control lyrics

Writer: Al Kooper

You were out there
And I thought that you were
For the asking
I've never been unfair
But I was looking for a love
That would be everlasting

Three years of taking
Anything that I could find
A one night stand -- you understand
Wasn't what I had in mind
Believe me that I lost control
I wanted you and that was
All that really mattered
Oh, I lost control
I couldn't tell this whole world
Had shattered
Lover, I could see
Was what you whipped on me
And I lost my control

Now he was your man
He had his faults
But you done your best to stick by him
But then one day
Bam! bam! he shot you down
Without anyone around who
Would try him

Three years of taking
Anything that he could find
A one night stand he didn't understand
It wasn't what you had in mind
And I believe you
Lost control
You ran to me and it felt
Like a whole new feeling
You lost control
You had an open wound
And I was so good at healing
But all you could see
Was the good side of me
And you lost control

No consideration
We couldn't help ourselves inside
It was a sorry situation
And he came to me one night
And he cried
He said you cut me worse -- ow!
Than any woman ever hurt a man
I said, my man, I'm real sorry
But that was not my plan
And I just believe

(you see this is what really happened)

I just lost control -- that's what I did
I just lost control
My whole world had turned around
And you were runnin' free
When you came to me
Oh we tried -- we tried our best
