Tim Kasher – There Must Be Something I've Lost lyrics

I've become obsessed with my high school yearbook
Teenagers peering with wondrous eyes
Through the lens of what they'll become
Their unfulfilled lives of marriages, mortgages.
Maybe I am become too marginalized
When I was young I believed in love
But hey I also believed in God
I know I know I know I know I wanna believe
Believe I love you again
I believe in a suburban heaven blissfully ignorant

I know I know it's not so bad
I should just settle down and settle down
And settle and settle down and settle down

I wanna have s** with all my old girlfriends again
I swear it's just the familiarity I miss
Aww fuck it, it's just typical male conquest
You know the world don't revolve around your prick
Just ask your old girlfriends

We were so earnest we were damned
If we could just have one more chance
I know I know I know I know we've all got lies of our own
Cats and kids and husbands and homes so won't you just please let go
I know I know I know I should but I know I won't
I know I should but I know I won't, yeah I know I should

Those drunken nights passed out on the laptop
Looking up old acquaintances there must be something I lost
Something I forgot that keeps me digging up these corpses,
Some midlife death wish
Won't you leave those poor girls alone?
They don't need you anymore
I know I know I know I know but still
I wonder if they ever feel empty like something is missing,
They don't, they don't, they don't, they don't, they don't, they don't.
