I think I lost it in the fog somewhere along the way, but not sure where

It might have been lost when I shaved off the last of my hair

Could have fallen from my pocket and slipped down the back of a chair

Or simply eroded away through a complete lack of care...

 

Who knows what actually happened to the damned thing?

Did it get covered in too much soap and slip off like a ring?

Maybe it vanished when I was pre-occupied with a minor thing

Or someone sat in my seat and stole it when I got up to sing...

 

It could possibly have got lost when my  mind was pre-occupied with nookie

Or gambled away the last time I paid a visit to the bookie

What if I thought I was Han Solo and it was robbed by a wookie

Or maybe I had my fortune and let it crumble like a cookie...

 

What if it disappeared in somebody else's thoughts

Got lost in the lines between the crosses and noughts

Was taken from me by frowning judges in the courts

Or pick-pocketed by street urchins in dirty trainers and shorts...

 

I suppose it may never have been there in the first place

Went when I was sprinting for the line but in the wrong race

Or got lost like a satellite drifting through space

Packed the fucking thing in the wrong fucking case...

 

I think I lost it in the fog somewhere along the way but not sure where

Dropped it when I stopped to light a cigarette for us to share

It could have been stolen whilst camping by a grizzly bear

It's quite possible I am actually looking for something that was never really there...
