"Going Missing" as written by Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Thomas Alexander English, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
I sleep with my hands across my chest
And i dream off you with someone else
I feed my body with things i don't need until i sink to the bottom

Don't act like it came as a surprise
don't believe me?, then look into these eyes

This can't go on so i should just regret it regret it regret it
And even though i led you on forget it forget it forget it

I'm going missing for a little while
i've got nothing left to loose
I don't listen to anything

I still remember how you move
And i taste your scent upon my lips
Well how it started, i will never know
But now i've reached my limit

Do you ever want to wear your body out?
until there's nothing left to take?
The rain began to push you away
Has midnight come too soon again?

I've got nothing in defence
I've got nothing left to loose

I sleep with my hands across my chest and i dream of you with someone else

    General CommentI think this song is about something that started out casual but she started to like him more and he knew this but didn't want anything serious but contiued on with it which is 'even though i led you on'.

    but he now sees that he did like her but is too late. he's trying to tell himself to forget it and move on and just put it down as a regret but he can't and is struggling. "I feed my body with things that I don't need, Until I sink to the bottom" seems like a reference to getting drunk to help try forget about it but its not really working. "I sleep with my hands across my chest, And I dream of you with someone else" is him thinking about her but all he thinks about is her being with someone else instead of him.

    "Going missing" is cause she is starting to consume his thoughts and he can't get over the fact he had a chance and didn't take it and just needs to get away from everything. its not going to happen so he just wants to get over her asap and sees that just doing his own thing for a while might help him do that.

    Can totally relate to this song, was in a position like the above but didn't realise i liked her til it was too late. the regret haunts me.

    General CommentRighto! The one's on the album insert are actually wrong and contain a verse which isn't in a song, and are also in the wrong order, so I've combined the lyrics by ear with the printed word.

    I sleep with my hands across my chest,
    And I dream of you with someone else,
    I feed my body with things that I don't need,
    Until I sink to the bottom,
    Don't act like it came as a surprise,
    Don't believe me? Then look into these eyes

    This cant go on so I should just,
    Regret it, regret it, regret it,
    And even though I led you on I'll,
    Forget it, forget it, forget it

    I'm going missing for a while,
    I've got nothing left to lose,
    Ooh I'll/Don't (Album insert says don't) listen to anything

    I still remember how you moved,
    And I taste your scent upon my lips,
    How it started, I will never know,
    But now I've reached my limit

    This cant go on so I should just,
    Regret it, regret it, regret it,
    And even though I left you I'll,
    Forget it, forget it, forget it

    I'm going missing for a while,
    I've got nothing left to lose,
    Don't listen to anything,
    I'm going missing for a while,
    I've got nothing left to lose,
    Don't I'll listen to anything

    Do you ever want to wear your body out,
    Until there's nothing left to take,
    The rain began to push you away,
    Has midnight come too soon again?

    I'm going missing for a while,
    I've got nothing left to lose,
    Don't I'll listen to anything,
    I've got nothing in defence,
    I've got nothing left to lose,
    Don't listen to anything

    I sleep with my hands across my chest,
    And I dream of you with someone else

    General CommentThis reminds me so much of when I went on holiday to Florida. Not many people had heard Maximo Park but after hearing this song for the first time I downloaded it. I listened to it constantly on holiday. 'Ooooooh I'll listen to anything!!'
