"Missing Children" as written by and Adam Teddy Thompson Rufus Wainwright....
Wake up and check the mail
Hoping to find a letter from you
But all I find
Are missing children.

Turn on the morning news
Hoping to see a resemblance of you
But all I see
Are missing children.

Tell me
Do you miss me like a missing child?

Trying to start my day
Pouring the coffee reach for the milk
And the carton says
"Have you seen these children?"

So I go to church and pray
Down on my knees when the plate comes
Please give what you can
For the missing children

Oh tell me
Do you miss me like a missing child?

And I do feel bad
For faces in my face all day
But the circumstance
Means I can't think of anything but you.
No I can't care for anything but you.

So I try to get away
Whole different place but the signs all the same
There's always more
More missing children

Then when I close my eyes
I used to dream sweet dreams of you
Now all my dreams
Are missing children.

And I miss you
I miss you like a missing child.
And I miss you
I miss you like a missing child.
