"I Will Be Found (Lost at Sea)" as written by and John Mayer....
It doesn't matter where you roam
When no one's left to call you home
I might have strained a bit too far
I'm countin' all the moonlit stars

I'm a little lost at sea
I'm a little birdie in a big old tree
Ain't nobody looking for me
Here out on the highway

But I will be found
I will be found
When my time comes down
I will be found

Somedays, I think it's all okay
Some nights, I throw it all away
I saw her face and I could tell
My ghost had left the town as well

I'm a little lost at sea
I'm a little birdie in a big old tree
Ain't nobody looking for me
Here out on the highway

But I will be found
I will be found
When my time comes down
I will be found

I'm a little lost at sea
I'm a little birdie in a big old tree
Ain't nobody looking for me
Here out on the highway

Baby, I'm a runaway train
Baby, I'm a feather in a hurricane
Maybe it's a long grey game
But maybe that's a good thing

'Cause I will be found
I will be found
When my time comes down
I will be found

So I keep runnin' 'til my run is gone
Keep on ridin' 'til I see that dawn
And I will be found
I will be found

    My InterpretationHe's just looking for love. Is that feeling you get when something's missing.

    "It doesn't matter where you roam
    When no one's left to call you home
    I might have strained a bit too far
    I'm countin' all the moonlit stars"

    This about having a place, someone to come back to. If you don't have that you just keep going, or you start to deny (even unconsciously), and looking back brings regret.

    "Somedays, I think it's all okay
    Some nights, I throw it all away
    I saw her face and I could tell
    My ghost had left the town as well"

    Now its about thinking that is okay, that one day your love will come. But weeks after saying this you are still alone, then you get sad, then you say its all okay, its a bad cicle. Then he looks bad on old love, noticing she forgot him and moved on.

    "Baby, I'm a runaway train
    Baby, I'm a feather in a hurricane
    Maybe it's a long grey game
    But maybe that's a good thing"

    Now his point of view is if it's taking that long, means when he finds the one, it will be crystal clear. He isn't picking any girl, he doesn't want to do that.

    Im kinda on the same page, this angust is something you just have to deal with it to have a good life.
