John Mayer – Something's Missing lyrics

I'm not alone, I wish I was
Cause then I'd know, I was down because
I couldn't find, a friend around
To love me like, they do right now
They do right now

I'm dizzy from the shopping malls
I searched for joy, but I bought it all
It doesn't help the hunger pains
And a thirst I'd have to drown first to ever satiate

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
At all

When autumn comes, it doesn't ask
It just walks in, where it left you last
And you never know, when it starts
Until there's fog inside the glass around your summer heart

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
At all

I can't be sure that this state of mind, is not of my own design
I wish there was an over the counter test, for loneliness
For loneliness like this

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is
Something's different
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is

Friends: check!
Money: check!
A well slept: check!
Opposite s**: check!
Guitar: check!
Microphone: check!
Messages waiting for me, when I come home: check!

How come everything I think I need, always comes with batteries
What do you think it means

How come everything I think I need, always comes with batteries
What do you think it means

    To me, this song is saying that no matter how well off we are, no matter what we have, no matter how famous we are, we can still be unhappy. This song backs up the statement that 'money can't buy happiness. ' We can have everything we think we want and still not be satisfied. The reason is because we are missing the one thing that we should be striving after, the one thing that leads to true happiness, and that's Jesus. Our God loves us so much that He sent his perfect son to die a death that we deserved. When we accept this and follow Jesus with every fiber of our being, we are satisfied. We are fulfilled. There is a hole in our hearts that only God can fill, and all we have to do for eternal happiness is to let him in so He can mold us and shape us into the image of Christ.
