"You're Not There" as written by and Pierce Ray Pettis....
The presence of your absence follows me
On trains and at the movies sitting next to empty seats
I wouldn't mind you going
If the emptiness would leave
But the presence of your absence follows me
(you're not there)

The silence of your voice deafens me
The sound of no one answering every time I speak
the overwhelming quiet
So loud I cannot think
The silence of your voice deafens me
(you're not there)

Heaven and earth could not make your stay
I'm damned by your memory that will not go away
The softness of your touch
The toss of your hair
Sometimes I even reach for you
But you're not there

The thought of your love tortures me
Left to my own devices sleeping with the enemy
The unexpected flashbacks that I don't want to see
The thought of your love tortures me
(you're not there)

(CHORUS)

(You're not there)
The presence of your absence follows me
(You're not there)
The silence of your voice deafens me
(You're not there)
The thought of your love tortures me
You're not there
