I lost my wallet
I lost my wallet
And I'm lost dear
I swear I had it
I had it on me
When we got here

Let's go to Vegas
Let's get a karaoke backroom
I'll never find it
I wanna shout into the vaccuum

That nothing's ever
Lost forever
It's just caught
Inside the cushions
Of your couch
And when you find it you'll
Have such a nice surprise
Nothing's ever lost forever
It's just hiding
In the recess of your mind
And when you need it it will
Come to you at night

Ho!

I miss the yellow
I miss the yelling
And the shakedown
I'm not complaining
I got a better set of knives now

I miss my drummer
My dead stepbrother
And the pit crowd
And Chuck and Matty
If they could see me
They'd be so proud

But nothing's ever lost forever
It's just caught
Inside the cushions
Of your couch
And when you find it you'll
Have such a nice surprise
Nothing's ever lost forever
It's just hiding
In the recess of your mind
And when you need it it will
Come to you at night

The wake is over
We gotta leave
Because they said so
I want to tell you
I want to tell you
But you're dead so

Golden light so
Way up high so
Wave goodbye

Tonight you'll find that
Nothing's ever lost forever
It's just caught
Inside the cushions
Of your couch
And when you find it you'll
Have such a nice surprise
Nothing's ever lost forever
It's just hiding
In the recess of your mind
And when you need it it will
Come to you at night

No one's ever lost forever
When they die they go away
But they will visit
You occasionally
Do not be afraid
No one's ever lost forever
They are caught
Inside your heart
If you garden them
And water them
They make you what you are
No one's ever lost forever
When they die they go away
But they will visit
You occasionally
Do not be afraid
No one's ever lost forever
They are caught
Inside your heart
If you garden them
And water them
They make you what you are
