    Lyrics »

Given any day there's a jet flying somewhere
Oh, she bought a ticket and she vanished in the sky
How was I to know she was leaving in the morning
I never heard her go, she never said goodbye
I've learned to love the night 'cause the light's gonna get ya
Right between the eyes in the morning like a gun
Reaching out your hand and she's not there beside you
Oh, what can I say, lost her in the sun
What have I done?
Lost her in the sun
Lost her in the sun

Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun
Lost her in the sun
Oh, I lost her in the sun

Fire up your heart for the wind is getting cold now
It always gets cold for the rider's of the night
You carry that scar when you know what lonesome is
Looking for a home like a bird in flight
And what have I done?
Lost her in the sun
Lost her in the sun

Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun
Lost her in the sun
Oh, I lost her in the sun

Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun
Oh, lost her in the sun

Fabulous tune
Review written by Pete, September 2nd, 2007

This tune has been my favorite since I first heard it in 1979 on the radio. I was lucky enough to locate a Bombs Away Dream Babies album a few years later. To this day I can't believe it is not played more on the radio during classic radio shows. I have requested it several times but the DJ is only aware of Gold.

Thanks for a beautiful tune John!!!
