Lost



She lost her find and now she's sad
She lost her mind
and now she's mad

He lost his fight and now he's meek
He lost his might
and now he's weak

She lost her smile and now she's lown
She lost her style
and now she's down

He lost his flair and now he's auld
He lost his hair
and now he's bald

She lost her touch and now she's numb
She lost her crutch
and now she's dumb

He lost his wife and now he's wan
He lost his life
and now he's gone
