This is definitely one of my favorite pieces on TCS. I am interested to hear your interpretation(s) of it.

No one seems to be talking about this with you, so I'll bite. It's one of my favorite songs Casey's ever written. The lyrics in the second chorus "Waiting for my soul to stir, and wake, rejoice and come alive again" just really hit me for some reason I can't explain. I think everyone can relate to this song at one time or another in their life, loosing yourself and trying to find your way back. It's such a beautiful song.

IMHO, the best song on the entire spectrum.

Antone,
Totally agree with you. For me it's the opening lyrics that really hit me "Somewhere I was lost. Off but not all gone." Something about this piece just speaks to me more than I can explain. So much so that the line I just wrote will be a tattoo soon.

I just listened to the whole TCS, and Lost But Not All Gone is such a perfect ending to this masterpiece! I'm now trying to remember where Casey wrote about the experience working with his mother and finding the incredible musical moment. It's just surreally beautiful!

OK, I found the quote I was looking for. Casey writes some wonderful notes in the booklet that accompanies the TCS Complete Collection (CDs). In his White essay, Casey writes about how he and his mother worked on the chorus:

..."we tracked 10-14 takes of her improvising across her range, without listening to the previous tracks. The result is an impromptu choir with some of the most beautiful motion, melody, and harmony I have ever heard. With the completion of that song, the White EP, and the entire Color Spectrum, was finished."


Sublime!
