about

Special Edition, digital only re-release of Eric Eckhart's critically-acclaimed 2006 Irish debut album "Lost and Found".

"In many ways, this was my first solo album. I recorded it alone with one microphone, my acoustic guitar and my Mac Mini in my small apartment in Dublin, Ireland over many months in 2005 and 2006.

My wife, Kusi Okamura, co-produced it with me and gave me a huge amount of encouragement and strength to put myself out there.

The songs all reflect my leaving America, my job, family, friends and way of life and starting all over again in Ireland.

For me, the album captures this special time in my life where I got to reset everything and begin anew.

I hope you enjoy it!"

"Lost and Found" was originally released on 17 May, 2006 in Ireland. All the original Digipak CDs have been sold and this is the first time the album has been available for digital download.

Bonus items included with your download are a photo from the Conway Pub photos session and the original 6-panel Digipak artwork.

Track Name: Bliss
One more song hurries me along
The one about regret
Same old thing happening again
I'm lost inside me, yeah

It's a shame when every sorrow feels like your oldest friend
Like this pain I had to swallow but it feels like bliss, feels like bliss
Every sorrow feels like bliss

One more day chasing back the rain
My eyes can't hide the truth
The hero's dead
It's me you get instead stripped bare in front of you

It's a shame when every sorrow feels like your oldest friend
Like this pain I had to swallow but it feels like bliss, feels like bliss
Every sorrow feels like bliss

One more song hurries me along
The one about the truth
Saved my life
Nothing left to hide
Reborn inside the tune

It's a shame when every sorrow feels like you never win
Like this pain I had to swallow but it feels like bliss, feels like bliss
Every sorrow feels like bliss
Every sorrow, Every sorrow
Every sorrow feels like bliss
Track Name: Katie's Waiting
Still I cannot find
Still I cannot find my home
And there's no place left for me
No place left where I can go
So it's one more sad goodbye
One more sad goodbye from me

And it's hard when you discover that
Hard for you to sit in my place
It's so strange
It's hard when you discover that
Hard for you to sit in my place
When Katie's waiting

Still I cannot hear
Still I cannot hear my heart
And it's crying out for me
But the distance now has grown too far
And the silence in the night
The silence just won't let me be

And it's easy when you compromise
Easier to sit in your place
It's so safe
It's easy when you compromise
Easier to sit in your place
When Katie's waiting
She's waiting
She's waiting
Katie's waiting
Track Name: Running
Wait for me
I keep running towards
Keep on running towards

Same sad dream
From the night before
From the night before

Clipped my wings
Left my body sore
Left my body sore

I'd really love to sleep
I'm finding it hard to tell you what I need

Fled my world
All I known before
All I known before

Chased my dreams
Life I'm longing for
Life I'm longing for

Filled my needs
Kept me running towards
Kept me running towards

I'd really love to sleep
I'm finding it hard to tell you what I need
I'm finding it hard to let go
Of everything I've ever known
I'm breaking it!

I'm shaking off the life I've left behind
And facing all the pain that's left inside
I'm shaking off the life I've left behind
And facing all the pain that's left inside
Track Name: I'm Trying
Words don't fly
They fade like moonlight
And break the bonds that lovers feel
I try to speak
And sound so incomplete
Ghosts and fears surrounding me

But I'm Trying
Yes I'm Trying

You must believe
And take this chance with me
Our fortune's told so long ago
I hit the rock
And it's so hard to talk
My heart is burning but can't release

But I'm Trying
Yes I'm Trying
But I'm Trying
Yes I'm Trying
All my life I've fought redemption

And I see that there's no distance now between you and me
And I fear that I might lose myself and fall at your feet
But if I stand to face myself and if I let my soul be free
Then you'll see the love, the flaws, the dreams, the hope inside of me

But I'm Trying
Yes I'm Trying

And I see that there's no distance now between you and me
And I fear that I might lose myself and fall at your feet
But if I stand to face myself and if I let my soul be free
Then you'll see the love, the flaws, the dreams, the hope inside of me

But I'm Trying
Yes I'm Trying
Track Name: Leaving Me Behind
I turn back years and begin to
To face all the dark feelings in my heart now
My heart now
My heart now
My heart now

I shed my skin and forgive me
For hiding the love buried in my heart now
My heart now
My heart now
My heart now

Standing high above confusion leaving me behind
Casting off my past conclusions
Leading down this road I fall upon

So my dreams start to free me
And break down the doors
And liberate my heart now
My heart now
My heart now
My heart now

Standing high above confusion leaving me behind
Casting off my past conclusions
Leading down this road I've come from
Leading down this road I've come from
Leading down this road I fall upon
Track Name: Rain or Shine
I don't mind
If the rain just pours
Or if the sun does shine

Cause I don't care
Where in the world you are just as long as I'm there

You will see
Just what you mean to me
Rain or shine I will always be with you

Look at me
See the day's bright sun or feel the night's cold breeze
Cause all I am is filled with love for you
I'm in the palm of your hand

You will see
Just what you mean to me
Day or night I will always be with you

You will see
Just what you mean to me
Rain or shine I will always be with you
Track Name: This Long Goodbye
I never thought this day would come
When the sky has separated from the sun
And the trees cry out their saddest melody
And this long goodbye has me driven to my knees

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face the pain

I've long since lost my way back home
And the scattered leaves hide the footpath to my soul
As the lonely waves are mourning for the sea
I will try my best to find what lies beneath

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cast in the flames
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye

This long goodbye
I know that it's over now but I can stop trying
This long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye

I know I'm a sinner for of doubt and ashamed
Long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye
Track Name: Bonus Track - "Edge of the World"
All my dreaming
Lying under stars
Staring at the moon
Has me feeling
I've no place left to run and nothing more to lose

Chorus:
I feel like everything surrounds me in this free world
Everything's colliding
But there's one hope and everybody knows
I'm calling from the edge of the world

So my heaven
Long ago I lost the faith I put in you
I can't help feeling
My luck is running out and it's time for me to lose

Chorus

I feel there's one hope and everybody knows
I'm calling from the edge of the world
I'm calling from the edge of the world
I'm calling from the edge of the world
