about

Originally written for the stage musical "Under The Greenwood Tree", LOST IN THE WOODS is based on the character Rosalind from William Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT.

lyrics

The virgin creek washes the blame
The infection of my father's name
Far away from city lights
The dark of night is very bright

Oh the things you gain when there's nothing left to lose
The chances you will take when there's no choice to choose
The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods

Sagging sun, behind the trees,
Set beside my memories
Let them fade through evening's end and
Wash around the river bend

Oh the things you gain when there's nothing left to lose
The chances you will take when there's no choice to choose
The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods

I'm the far straying branch, stretching since birth
For some sweeter sky towards to roam
I'm digging my roots in alien earth
Cause where I come from is surely not home

The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods
