I Think I Lost Something (Finch)

I think I lost something you gave to me
But I don't remember what it was
There's an empty spot that could be filled
And I can't seem to fill it

If you tell me what I'm looking for
I'll look closer than I did before
And I'll try harder than I did before
To make the picture complete

Describe its shape and size to me
Was it something I carried around?
Was it like a book or radio?
Or was it alive and breathing?

I don't want to look like I'm foolish
But I don't want to care, either
I might be a little misguided
But I know something's gone

I wish that I could take away
This gnawing sense of loss
Boundless freedom can't erase
This trap I've drawn around me

I worry over nothing
And ignore what's really important
I know I'm a little excited
But that's just what I mean
