Lyrics for Nearly Lost You by Screaming Trees:

Verse 1
Did you hear the distant cry?
Calling me back to my sins
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

Chorus
I nearly
I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Let's try to sleep now

Verse 2
Drag me far enough to know
I'm blind every mile that you burn
There's a rider that's fallen and
It's clear there's no time to return

Chorus
I nearly
I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well, let's try to sleep now

Verse 3
Did you hear the distant lie?
Calling me back to my sin
Like the ones you knew before
Calling me back once again

Chorus
I nearly
I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well, let's try to sleep now

Outro/Chorus
I nearly lost you there, I nearly lost you
I nearly lost you there, I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you there
Oh yeah, I oh, I nearly lost you there

Song Facts

Said by the band itself: “It’s basically about being on acid and how you can lose control of your mind. I stopped using drugs a long time ago, but there’s this place you get if you do the right kind or the wrong kind or too much, where you really feel like you know what an insane person feels like — where you see demons and hell and just fucking crazy shit. Basically, I was referring to that point where you’ve gone too far and then you make it back somehow.”
