The rain beats a rhythm on the glass Through these nights, the memories pass The lights they shimmer, born anew Looking through the pain from a private view Dishes in the sink and an unmade bed Yesterday’s headlines still left unread The TV is on, the volume turned down Clothes and records strewn all around These days I’m spending my time all alone But I still wish you’d pick up the phone Just wasted time, waiting for your call No one to catch me when I fall The line you crossed, one step too far The door closed, no longer ajar The motivations, not fully understood To fill this loneliness if only I could Chorus: I’m missing you. I’m missing me. I’m missing who I was and who I wanted to be. Dreams and disappointment go hand in hand So many things I don’t understand What you said, and what you did The life away that you always kept hid The line you crossed, one step too far The door closed, no longer ajar The motivations, not fully understood To fill this loneliness if only I could Chorus: I’m missing you. I’m missing me. I’m missing who I was and who I wanted to be.

about

Missing, originally recorded and demo'd close to 40 years ago. Or, Nineteen Eighty Something... about losing yourself in a toxic relationship and being lost and adrift once the realities set in. Written, recorded, and put away the original tapes sat on a shelf, then in a box through several moves until being discovered in the back of a closet during the pandemic. Time and remembrance can shift things, and there was a a bit of fear listening to the track and having completely forgotten about it. Very much of a a place and time, I felt I owed it to who I was back in the day and time I wrote it to finish it. Part of the forthcoming NINETEEN EIGHTY SOMETHING PROJECT.
