    "things that you lack"

    hi,

    I think I have heard this expression in/on a television show.
    I'd like to know if it actually exists, please.
    If so, does it mean "things that you don't have"?
    thanks.

    Re: "things that you lack"

    I've just googled for this phrase. It seems that it is part of a song, at least I came across many lyrics containing this phrase.

    You are right with your suggestion.

    It means things that you don't have.

    Also:

    They continue to lack a certain warmth in commucation with other people.

    The pupils were showing a lack of interest in this subject.
