TITLE. LYRICS

TV version

She's lost control

Confusion in her eyes that says it all, she's lost control
And she's clinging to the nearest passer-by, she's lost control
And she gave away the secrets of her past and said "I've lost control again"
And of a voice that told her when and where to act, she said "I've lost control again"

And she turned to me and took me by the hand and said "I've lost control again"
And how I'll never know just why or understand, she said "I've lost control again"
And she screamed out, kicking on her side and said "I've lost control again"
And seized up on the floor I thought she'd die , she said "I've lost control"
She's lost control again, she's lost control

Well I had to phone her friend to state my case and say she's lost control again
And she showed up all the errors and mistakes and said "I've lost control again"
But she expressed herself in many different ways until she lost control again
And walked upon the edge of no escape and laughed "I've lost control again"
She's lost control again, she's lost control
