Missing

Everything But The Girl

I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
and past your door
but you don't live there any more.

It's years since you've been there.
Now you've disappeared somewhere
like outer space
you've found some better place

and I miss you
like the deserts miss the rain.

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead of everyone.
We'd walk behind while you would run.

I look up at your house, and I can almost hear you shout down to me
where I always used to be

and I miss you
like the deserts miss the rain.

Back on the train
I ask why did I come again?
Can I confess I've been hanging round your old address?

And the years have proved
to offer nothing since you moved.
You're long gone but I can't move on

and I miss you - like the deserts miss the rain.
