"Lost and Found" as written by and Laurent Mazzalai Frederic Moulin....
So you've got your own little story to tell
Some girls they ask to put them on your knees
Slowdown, it's hard enough to get along
Slowdown, we'll never ever get along
That ain't what you had in mind
No that ain't what you had in mind
You don't know what you're doing

Let go
It's so hard to fill me in
You'd better run as fast as you can
When your eyes are getting low
Tomorrow'll say if you're lost and found

Walking around thinking the same again
To get to you I'll go down on my knees
Last night I swear it wouldn't be the same
Last night I swear it never was the same
Two is for a while but then one has got to leave
That's it! I ain't lying and I won't ask you please
I'll tell you what I have in mind

Let go
It's so hard to fill me in
You'd better run as fast as you can
When your eyes are getting low
Tomorrow'll say if you're lost and found

I'll tell you what I have in mind
It's so hard to fill me in
You'd better run as fast as you can

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who acts like she wants a guy, but then changes her mind and she gets confused about what she wants. Meanwhile he has sort of fallen for her, and just wants her honesty, what's best for her, and for her to figure herself out, but knows that even though she's been the more powerful personality... he's the one that actually knows what's going on. She better run as fast as she can, because she's not the type that handles her truths well. or something.

    General Commentit seems to be about a female lover refusing to let her lover break down her boundaries. she's scared, therefore making the relationship limited by her own "selfish little story" as if her lover does not have a story to tell as well.

    General Commenti love how he kinda laughs 'hmm'.. and then the line 'you don't know what you're doing' bleeds into that beautiful all-band jam... i love this band. their music is infinitely catchy, and their lyrics kick ass.. period.

    General CommentI love the lyrics of this. It's a shame that most people don't appreciate good music, like Phoenix.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song has always been about a break-up and the singer is not only trying to come to terms with but trying to let the break-up settle (with the "two's for a while but then one has got to leave, that's it. I ain't lying and I won't ask you please") it seems that the he or the other person is somewhat resistant of the break-up ("slowdown, it's hard enough to get along, slowdown, we'll never ever get along") and then he eventually says that the other person shouldn't want him back anyway ("let go, It's so hard to fill me in, you'd better run as fast as you can")

    There's definitely another meaning to this song, but this was sort of my interpretation of it.
