"Lost & Found" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It was intended to be on her fourth extended play (EP), After School, however it was later scrapped. This song has not been performed live or officially released.

The full song was leaked on October 10th, 2021.

Theme

The song is about the aftermath of a relationship where if you are "lost" or let go of something, even if you fall down deeply, you will still get up and continue your track. Though you must cope, and apply what you've learned throughout your continuation. Loving is a risk and there are many possibilities that might happen. You may be frightened, or too weak to continue, but never be afraid to try to focus and move on along with your own self, and your past wounds. After all, you will be able to find your "found one".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
All you do is complain
'Bout the things you lost some years ago, babe
Step on all those memories 'cause they're deadweight
But absorb the message, apply the lesson
When we die we take no possessions, no

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You know it's hard when you hold me like that
Fall in too deep and it brings you right back, oh-oh
If they were the lost one, maybe I'm the found one
You'll never catch a rainbow focused on an old storm

[Chorus]
In the lost and found, in ​the lost and found
You'd be surprised, but you would find
Somеone's trash is another one's gold prize
Love is a risk, they are combined
Why deny the rhapsody in our eyes?

[Verse 2]
Pick up the pace
Eyes off all your losses and the past pain
Don't be scared of holding onto new things
I know you're jaded and love frustrated
Not everybody will treat you like they did

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It must be hard not to act like that
How you gonna trust when you never learned that? Oh-oh
"If they were the lost one, maybe I'm the found one"
You'll never catch a rainbow focused on an old storm

[Chorus]
In the lost and found, in ​the lost and found
You'd be surprised, but you would find
Someone's trash is another one's gold prize
Love is a risk, they are combined
Why deny the rhapsody in our eyes?

[Bridge]
Romanticizing short encounters is a coping mechanism
For past wounds
Fear infested the marrow of your body-y
Ooh-ooh

[Chorus]
In the lost and found, in ​the lost and found
You'd be surprised, but you would find
Someone's trash is another one's gold prize
Love is a risk, they are combined
Why deny the rhapsody in our eyes?
