If not me
Find someone who loves you
And if not me
Find someone who knows who you are
They're just memories
They can get so mean
Little sacred things
Floating out to sea

I once knew a girl
She once knew me
We had our own world
My life was free

I loved someone
I set them free
They haven't yet come back to me
But if they do
I'll surely be
More lucky than anyone could be

An empty house
A sacrificial mouse
A head full of lead
Weighing all the things that she said

But I digress
My tunnel vision
Make me pay
I know what i'm missing

I once knew a girl
She once knew me
We had our own world
My life was free

I loved someone
I set them free
They haven't yet come back to me
But if they do
I'll surely be
More lucky than anyone could be

So won't you please
Find your way back to me
My one and only
Find your way back to me

I once knew a girl
She once knew me
We had our own world
I like what's free

I loved someone
I set them free
They haven't yet come back to me
But if they do
I'll surely be
More lucky than anyone could be

And if not me
Find someone who loves you

    General CommentGreat song. Sad it's a bonus track though, I haven't been able to find it anywhere except a filesharing site online.

    General CommentAnyway, this is my take:

    "It's not me
    Find someone who loves you
    And if not me
    Find someone who knows who you are"

    There's this girl who is completely taken by him. Though, he doesn't reciprocate, it's possible they're both strangers at the time. Maybe not even strangers - he just feels they don't know each other well enough. So he's telling her to find somebody else.

    "They're just memories
    They can get so mean
    Little sacred things
    Floating out to sea"

    "They're" might be everything she bases her love for him off of. Reasons, I guess. Though his reasoning is, "Oh, you just took them all the wrong way. You think they're really important, but look. There they go. Drifting away."

    "I once knew a girl
    She once knew me
    We had our own world
    My life was free"

    He's delving into his own past now.. this verse is self-explanatory, really.

    "I loved someone
    I set them free
    They haven't yet come back to me
    But if they do
    I'll surely be
    More lucky than anyone could be"

    Obviously it didn't work out with the girl he was remembering, but this is all recalling an old saying. "If you love something, set it free, if it comes back it's meant to be". Maybe it's a tad cynical..

    "An empty house
    A sacrificial mouse
    A head full of lead
    Weighing all the things that she said"

    Maybe they lived together at one point. Weighing all the things that she said, maybe he didn't do that when he was supposed to, back before they broke up.

    "But I digress
    My tunnel vision
    Make me pay
    I know what I'm missing"

    Looking back, he regrets not listening when he should have.

    "So won't you please
    Find your way back to me
    My one and only
    Find your way back to me"

    Self-explanatory.

    "And if not me
    Find someone who loves you"

    Basically, "If I can't have you anymore, be with someone who will at least treat you right." It makes you wonder if the girl in the beginning of the song is the same one he lost.
