about

"Missing Person" was inspired by a story of broken trust in a relationship. I tried to get inside the feeling and paint how heart breaking it can be.

lyrics

Missing Person - Red Falcon / White Lightning

I miss the way she used to sing/ While driving in the slowest lane/
Her careful ways of abandoning her troubles and all of her fears/
The warmth of her receiving lips/ And gentle contours of her hips/
I'd trace a line over double dips/ While sunlight splashed on a thin veneer/

The physical resemblance is uncanny, yes it's true/
But the person that i'm missing isn't you/
No, the person that I'm missing can't be you/

Our walks along the vacant streets/ Spilling guts and laughing endlessly/
A second sunrise at the beach, cementing what we long had known/
Her ever eager tendency/ to make me smile in spite of me/
And shining generosity, has faded down to a dull glow/

How to tell your faces apart, I wouldn't have a clue/
But the person that i'm missing isn't you/
No, the person that I'm missing can't be you/

With all of my wealth thrown into your market shares/
My future in the balance of some broker's fickle dares/
Oh

I miss your smell i cannot lie/ It's absence has me paralyzed/
But I can't forget the day/ No I can't forget the day/
I miss your smell i cannot lie/ It's absence has me paralyzed/
But I can't forget the day/ No I can't forget the day/
