Are these sentences all natural? (I couldn't believe you said that....) You got me lost for words./ You left me at a loss for words. You struck me dumb/ I was really struck dumb with your words. You left me speechless, word failed me. You really made me have nothing to say.

1. I CAN'T believe you said that. (Unless you are narrating a story that happened in the past. Then you say "couldn't".) You leave me at a loss for words. I am lost for words. Words fail me. You leave me speechless. I am struck dumb (BY what you say). All of these can be used in the past tense.
