I'm a sinner, I ain't a saint
I should pray as much as I complain
Oh, it's all just a lost cause

If you knew me when I was eight
I was the queen of Labor Day parades
Oh, it's all just a lost cause

Lost cause
I'm waiting for the reason for it all
Lost cause

When you work to buy some food
Then you work to turn it into
Oh, it feels just like a lost cause

And when you're marching in peace parades
But it feels just like charades
Oh, it's all just a lost cause

I'm pretty lazy, I like to sleep
You could say I am pretty beat
Oh, am I just a lost cause?

Lost cause
I'm waiting for the reason for it all
Lost cause

Lost cause
I'm waiting for the reason for it all
Lost cause

    In all these examples, i can see how the situation could be easily remedied, and so my answer when she asks if she is a lost cause is, "no, you are not. "
    Don't wait for the reason for it all, find it within yourself. :)

    it means how she and herself is a lost cause, how everything you do and all the money you have is a lost cause. you cant keep it forever.
