Nothing to do, turn on the tube,
With a TV guide right by your side.
You turn to the news, nothing is new
You're not really listening anyways.

You got a note in the mail,
It says that you failed,
To meet the requirements for a welfare check.
But it would mean so much less if someone would just
Take the time to come and check.

Inside every lonely life,
There's a question burning holes inside...

If I'm missing, would you miss me?
If I'm gone, would you move on?
Would you post up signs on street poles?
Would you search straight through 'till dawn?
and If the sun rose up would you search all through the day?
and Would you not give up and not lay down until I'm found?

You lay down on the bed, the sheets coloured red,
You never really liked that colour much.
If tonight when you closed, your eyes you died,
Would anybody notice?

and Inside every lonely life,
There's a question burning holes inside...

If I'm missing, would you miss me?
If I'm gone, would you move on?
Would you post up signs on street poles?
Would you search straight through 'till dawn?
and If the sun rose up would you search all through the day?
and Would you not give up and not lay down...

Every single second of our lives
Is a second that we can't just let slip by
Cause for everyone who's got someone there's a pair of lonely eyes
and If we'd just look up to meet the tears they cry...

If I'm missing, would you miss me?
If I'm gone, would you move on?
Would you post up signs on street poles?
Would you search straight through 'till dawn?
and If the sun rose up would you search all through the day?
and Would you not give up and not lay down until I'm found?

You walk in the door, shoes on the floor
A pack of cigarettes lay on the stand.
The answering machine is perfectly clean,
No one ever called.

Says Constable Leer,
"It's been seven years. How can anyone be so alone?"
He's been dead in his bed, the sheets coloured red,
and No one ever noticed...

    General CommentThis reminds me of my family. They peretty much shut me out and don't talk to me. And like this song if I went missing, I wonder if they'd care.
