"There Must Be Something I've Lost" as written by and Tim Kasher....
I've become obsessed with my high school yearbook
Teenagers peering with wondrous eyes
Through the lens of what they'll become
Their unfulfilled lives of marriages, mortgages
Maybe I am becoming too marginalized

When I was young I believed in love
But hey, I also believed in God
I know, I know, I know, I know

I wanna believe, believe I love you again
I believe in a suburban heaven
Blissfully, ignorant.

I know, I know it's not so bad
I should just settle down
Settle down and settle down
Just settle down, settle down, settle down...

I wanna have sex with all my old girlfriends again
I swear it's just the familiarity I miss
Ah, fuck it; it's just typical male conquest
You know, the world don't revolve around your prick
Just ask your old girlfriends

We were so earnest, we were damned
If we could just have one more chance
I know, I know, I know, I know
We've all got lives of our own
Cats and kids and husbands and homes
So won't you please let go?

I know, I know, I know, I should
But I know I won't
I know I should but I know I won't
Yeah, I know I should

Those drunken nights passed out on the laptop
Looking up old acquaintances
There must be something I've lost
Something I've forgot
That keeps me digging up these corpses
Some midlife death wish

Won't you leave those poor girls alone?
They don't need you anymore
I know, I know, I know, I know
I wonder if they ever feel empty like something is missing
They don't, they don't, they don't, they don't
