"You Won't Find This" as written by Cathy Dennis and Tom C Shapiro....
Did you check the tires?
Put gas in the car?
I don't think you'll need too much
Cause you ain't gonna get that far

Did you pack the good times?
Don't forget a map
Just encase the route you take
Isn't there to take you back

You can hold any girl that you like
Fall in love when it's easy at night
But when you wake up wonderin'
Why she ain't ever something better

When you're lost and you run out of road
Find what I already know
In the end close is all there is
But you won't find this
No, you won't find this

There' once in a lifetime
And there' once in a while
And the difference between the two
Is about a million miles

Oh, you might get lucky
While the moon is looking on
But in the truth of the morning
The stars will be gone

You can hold any girl that you like
Fall in love when it's easy at night
But when you wake up wondering why
She ain't ever something better

When you're lost and you run out of road
Find what I already know
In the end close is all there is
But you won't find this

You can hold any girl that you like
Fall in love when it's easy at night
But when you wake up wondering why
She ain't ever something better

When your lost and you run out of road
Find what u already know
In the end close is all there is

Oh, in the end it's me your gonna miss
Cause you won't find this
Oh, you won't find this.

    General CommentI don't think she necessarily was his girlfriend. To me, it sounds like they were getting to know each other and he just kind of left. They haven't talked in a while, and this is like her letter to him. She basically says he won't get too far without her, and he'll regret not even getting to know her enough. He will soon realize that whatever girl he meets, he's never going to be satisfied and probably won't know why. So here, Carrie is explaining this to him.

    The reason why I think this is about a boy she was getting to know and not dating was because of the line, "in the end, close is all there is". 'Close' refers to how close they were to finally start dating, I think. When she says "You Won't Find This", she means that this guy made a mistake he will regret, and he will never find another like her.

    Later she says "There's once in a lifetime, and there's once in a while". Once in a while is finding someone who you really like. Once in a lifetime is finding THE one, and Carrie explains how different they are. Some people do find two people; one they love and let go, and they find another and move on. But in this song, she says it isn't very likely.

    Finally, in the end, after a beautiful, yet sad song, Carrie finally clearly explains the title of the song. She sings, "In the end it’s me you’re gonna miss ". I think this song is beautiful, and it reminds me of something that happened to me.

    General CommentThis is about someone who has moved on from her last relationship, and she's telling her ex that even though he tried to replace her won't find like her. I think he was always looking for something more, or screwing her over for stupid reasons that he was looking for the perfect girl, when what they the best he'd ever find. The lines "..There's once in a lifetime, and there's once in a while, and the difference between the two is about a million miles,Oh you might get lucky, By the moon is looking up , But in the truth of the morning ,The stars will be long gone." She's saying that he can take anyone home at night but in the morning there willl be nothing like what they had. "This" is how she refers to thier relationship.

    General CommentThis is the best song from the album. Like the other person said, it's about a woman and her past relationship. She's saying it was a 'once in a lifetime' thing and he's gone and looking for something else to replace it, but he won't find it.

    General CommentI think this song is pretty straight forward. It's about a woman and her previous relationship. She knows that she was the best thing to happen to this guy and he just threw her away. The guy can go have any girl he wishes, but there won't be another just like her. She's saying that he can find one close to being like her, but not one better than her. He'll come to realize that and be missing her in the end.

    General CommentThis song = summer 07!

    This song is what got me through everything. Getting over this guy, it was hard but this song just explains everything.

    I was never going to see this guy again and I was afraid he was going to move on from me fast and I was afraid of not knowing is life anymore.

    General Commentbasically, i think that this song means that this guy and her were close but he up and left her with a broken heart and shes telling him that no matter what he does he'll never find anyone that comes close to "filling her shoes" so to speak..and shes saying that they were perfect but she doesnt know why he left but she knows that he'll never find anyone more perfect for him than her
