New TFF Song – I Love You But I’m Lost

So normally I reserve music posts for Helen Vahdati‘s weekly Song Lyric Sunday prompt but I just had to give you all a bonus track this week that has nothing to do with SLS or last week’s theme.

On October 6th, the British synthpop duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith known as Tears for Fears released a brand new song; their first one in 13 years. It’s totally awesome so I just had to share it.

Lost in the maze of the back streets I struggled
Fighting my way through a whole lot of trouble
Too many people were talking without moving their mouths

So many days so many nights ever wonder
By the lies that have stolen my thunder
In the haze of my mind all the wires were crossed

I love you but I’m lost

From a flame to the spark of an ember
To a fire on the 5th of November
We escaped from the light now we count the cost

I love you but I’m lost
I love you but I’m lost

Look at the marks on your arms all the colours
How you like to make them pay
These are the reasons why your life is not quite what it was

In a dream at the edge of a river
Where we swam where I watched you shiver
Came to life in my arms and then turned to dust

I love you but I’m lost

From a flame to the spark of an ember
To a fire on the 5th of November
We escaped from the light now we count the cost

I love you but I’m lost
I love you but I’m lost

All we needed was some time (x4)

I love you but I’m lost (x7)

Helen, please don’t shoot me for doing a song lyric post on Tuesday! I just had to share this. As with a lot of TFF’s material, this song just shook me to the core with its lyrical and musical composition. I hope you all enjoyed this song as much as I did.

  1. This is such a cool song! They need Roland’s voice back, though (or if he’s still with them, it needed to be a bit stronger?), but it’s so refreshing to hear them going so strong after all these years! They’ve still got it! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😁

    • Honestly, I’m not sure which of the two sang the lead on this one. Roland sings much of the falsetto Curt used to now because he still has his top end in his older age; Curt not so much. Alas, Roland does still have his power in his “chest voice” as he did back in the day.

      And Roland never left TFF. It was Curt who parted ways with the band in 1991 and came back in the early 2000s and has been there ever since.
