"In the Lost and Found (Honky Bach)" as written by and E Smith....
He held his breath
To hold your hand
To walk the stairsteps in pairs
Climbing up the slippery slope
I'm in love
God, I hope
Don't go home Angelina
Stay with me
Hanging around in the lost and found

He kissed her quick
Feeling weird
Lonely leeved
Disappear
This is such a simple place
Passing time
Can't erase
Don't don't go go home Angelina
Make tomorrow new

Day breaks
And every morning when he wakes
He thinks of you

I'm alone
That's OK
I don't mind
Most of the time
I don't feel afraid to die
She was here, passing by
Don't don't go home Angelina
Stay with me
Hanging around in the lost and found

    General CommentHe's in love with a girl, obviously. It almost has a childish feeling. It's that beginning love? Where it's all cute and romantic. But she's got to leave him and he's asking her not to. But in the end she does. And to me he's saying that he's alone now but it's okay because he had that perfect love. He's not afraid to die because even though he didn't get to keep it he found what he was looking for.

    General CommentI love how it goes from being all happy and stacatto and then at the bridge goes into that sadder tone, but back to the happy piano. Like, as if to say, he can get over her even if he doesn't want to.

    General CommentWow. This is such a goddamn good song. It's so cute and amazingly nice and kind of sad at the same time. I want to listen to it all the time.

    I think I might.
