(1)

(2)
I'm not alone
I wish I was
Cause then I'd know
I'm down because
I couldn't find
A friend around
To love me like
They do right now
They do right now

(1)

(2)
I'm dizzy from
the shopping malls
I searched for hope
and I bought it out
it doesn't help
the hunger pains
the thirst I'd
have to drown first
to ever satiate

(3)

(4)
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
At all

(1)

(2)
And autumn comes
It doesn't ask
it just walks in 
where it left you last
You never know
When it starts
Until there's fog
inside the glass
around your summer heart

(4)
Something's missing
And I don't how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is 
At all

(5)

(6)
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

(4)
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is

(4 or 7, he's played both)
Friends check
Money check
Good times check
Guitar check
All check
All of you check
Everyone check
Having fun
Having fun

And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is
At all

(strum first chord to end the song)
