If I'm lost at sea,
Tell my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother,
My friends and my foes, and all my past lovers,
That I will miss them so.
But lord, I had to go.

Sorrows, to the sea,
We're headed to nowhere, but nowhere is somewhere to me.
Take these broken things,
Turn them to something, but please don't follow me.

If I'm lost at sea,
Tell my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother,
My friends and my foes, and all my past lovers,
That I will miss them so.
But lord, I had to go.

Imagine emotion that moves like the ocean,
You're mind is the current that moves with the notion.
And everyone, everywhere,
Is taking their time, but going nowhere.

I can't live my life on their time,
I just had to run, away.

If I'm lost at sea,
Tell my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother,
My friends and my foes, and all my past lovers,
That I will miss them so.
But lord, I had to go.

    In almost all of his songs, chris talks about him running away. Sometimes he says he wants to go home, sometimes he said hes glad he left, sometimes hes talking about the process of running away. But, in this song, he is talking about how everyone wants him to live like them by their rules. He loves them, but he had to go or else he would loose his mind and beautiful heart. However, he doesn't want them to leave to because they are happy where and how they are. Ignorance is bliss.

    Tsk! Tsk! Chris.. Whats with the mental breakdown hun? :( this song.. Is very sad yet.. Ahmazing.. He wrote this when he was alone at home and whenever he says hes "lost at sea" its basically means hes losing his mind... And if he loses his mind just for everyone to know that he.. Well.. Will miss them so x3 this has gotta be one of the most intense never shout never songs.. Yet its terribly good ;) yes it may be different then his usual happy-go-lucky love songs.. But this goes to show that not all of his songs are about girls.. His songs are ahmaziing and this has to be one of the greatest :)

    Chris wrote this when he was having a "mental breakdown. " he wrote it when he was home alone; no one was around. He didn't know what else to do, so he grabbed my guitar and wrote this song. Whenever he says lost at sea, it's a metaphor for when he loses his mind. Like, if he loses his mind and never came back the same tell everyone that he'll miss them, but he had to go. Pretty depressing, but at the same time a pretty cool tune.

    Came from nevershoutnver's facebook i just changed it up a bit using he, his, and him
