Lake: Lost By The Wayside

Oh well the Lord said come forth
But I came fifth
And I was lost by the wayside
And my dreams said don’t go
But then I did
And I was caught in a landslide

From the band’s second album, Lake II, released in 1978. Had little knowledge of the band, other than liking the vocals and production. Then finding out that Lake was a German-based band with a British lead singer, James Hopkins-Harrison, that achieved modest success over a decade or so, mid-1970s to mid-1980s.

Song written by James Hopkins-Harrison and keyboard player and guitarist Geoffrey Peacey, who also engineered the album.

Hopkins-Harrison died of a heroin overdose in 1991, the only apparent drug casualty from the band’s time. Geoffrey Peacey developed a career as a sound engineer in Hamburg.

Hanging from my bed by a silver thread
I looked myself right in the eye
