Soon As I Found It I Lost It

Down the field, through the broken fence
To the place they warned me against
Soon as I found it, I lost it
Started walking then I just kept on
Every step a new horizon
Soon as I found it, I lost it

Through the wind, through the rain
Up the hill, then down again
Through the rain, through the snow
Where it went, I no longer know
Soon as I found it, I lost it

Life's great, yeah - life's a beach
But everything slips out of reach
Soon as you've found it, you've lost it
Nothing here ever gets resolved
Like a dream, you can feel it dissolve
Soon as you've found it, you've lost it

Through the wind, through the rain
A knife's edge between love and pain
Through the rain, through the snow
What you want, you no longer know
Soon as you've found it, you've lost it

Through the rain, through the sleet
The warp and weft of the city streets
Through the sleet, the snow
Where I'm going, I no longer know
Soon as I found it, I lost it
