"Something's Missing" as written by and John Mayer....
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 my joy but I timed 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
No I don't know what it is

When 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

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

I can't be sure that this state of mine
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 I'm ever gonna fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
I don't know I don't know I don't know
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 sex
(Check)
Guitar
(Check)
Microphone
(Check)
Messages waiting on me when
I come home

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

    General CommentI love this song on Heavier Things, but I love it even more on Try! In the beginning of the song on Try! John says,
    "It ain't your TV,
    though it's fun to laugh at people sometimes
    It ain't your computer,
    though it's nice to spend a whole night online
    It's not your movies,
    I see the same damn story line
    It's only music now, it's only music now."

    I love that!
