Back Catalog Song-O-Day: Island of Lost Things

The Island of "Lost Things is from my "Nostalgia Kills" record. Below is a live version of the song from WFUV. The late great Rita Houston hosted the show. And below the lyrics is the album version. Has anyone seen my car keys, by the way?

I lost my keys, I lost my heart I lost my car in the parking lot Lost my voice, but can her sing From the Island of Lost Things Island of Lost Things I lost my phone, I lost my way Lost the hours of the day Grandma's ring swirled down the drain. To the island of lost things Island of Lost Things I lost my shirt, I lost my aim I lost the person I could blame. I wish I could recall his name The Island of Lost Things My mom was not a hoarder She threw everything away My 45s, my favorite toys The shoebox full of Polaroids. Plastic on the good couch Everything was always clean A vacuum bag of treasures In the island of lost things I lost my wallet , my ID Is someone else becoming me My girlfriend's somewhere on the seas To the Island of Lost Things Island of Lost Things I'd like to book a trip there Maybe I could find Traipsing through the ruins The dream I left behind I'd put it in my pocket And I'd clip its wings So it could never fly again To the Island of Lost Things I Lost my pop, I lost my fizz Oh the wonder that I miss I miss the taste of your sweet kiss The Island of Lost Things The Island of Lost Things And if you ever go there Call me if you find What happened to my true love The one I left behind Is she underneath a palm tree Staring out to sea Spinning my old records On the Island of Lost Things lost my keys, I lost my heart I lost my car in the parking lot Lost my voice, but can her sing From the Island of Lost Things Island of Lost Things
