Sivu – I Lost Myself

Like most of his material to date, ‘I Lost Myself’ was written in a period of uncertainty for Sivu. Born in the sleepy town of St.Ives, Cambridgeshire, but moving to London to pursue music, 24-year-old James Page struggled to adapt to the capital. He worked as an administrator for a bailiff company, played a crash-course of depressing open mic nights, and then took up a permanent fixture in a call centre in Waterloo – the latter of which strengthened his work ethic, and the songwriting process itself. The Noah’s Ark apocalypse of ‘Bodies’ described that “time in my life when everything was a mess. I just loved the idea of wiping the slate clean.” New single ‘I Lost Myself’ was particularly inspired by the drug and alcohol culture Sivu became exposed to, and “the idea of getting bogged down by life, and wanting to go and destroy yourself. I found myself caught in a bit of a rut, and in social scenes which perhaps weren’t healthy for me.”

Sivu – I Lost Myself

Sivu – I Lost Myself Lyrics:
I LOST MYSELF LAST NIGHT
‘Cause I tried to forget
And all I ever wanted
Was a purpose and some respect

A LITTLE VOICE INSIDE
Ran like a river, now it’s dry
So I lost myself last night
‘Cause I tried to forget

Fall around and break my body away
Then I should go
Coming down I can tore my bones
To change the way I grow

I gave myself into goodbye
I’ll go so far you’ll never find me now
I am the water turned to bind
Tear and chewed out of my mouth
Illuminate my body

I LOST MYSELF LAST NIGHT
‘Cause I tried to forgive
Bottle those dreams I hoped to reduce
Revive and let all real smooth

A LITTLE VOICE INSIDE
Ran like a river, now it’s dry
So I lost myself last night
‘Cause I tried to forget

Fall around and break my body away
Then I should go
Coming down I can tore my bones
To change the way I grow

I gave myself into goodbye
I’ll go so far you’ll never find me now
I am the water turned to bind
Tear and chewed out of my mouth
Illuminate my body

Oh, the truth from my eyes
Keeping secrets from the sun
In the dark of the night
I see no one tired and fine

I gave myself into goodbye
I’ll go so far you’ll never find me now
I am the water turned to bind
Tear and chewed out of my mouth
Illuminate my body
My body, my body.
Sivu I Lost Myself Sivu   I Lost Myself
