"Missing" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Lacey Nicole Sturm and Kirkpatrick Seals....
I saw your queen
Swam out below her star on sea beneath
Though I lifted up my hands to her
She never lifted me

Oh something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone
Found something sweet
On the island with the daughters of eve
But through thick and thin they've gone away
And only left their grief

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me

Down here love wasn't meant to be
It wasn't meant to be for me
All is vanity underneath the sun (It wasn't meant to be)
All is vanity

Something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me

    General CommentI know this could be a wrong interpretation but im basing it off how it relates to me.
    I pretty much agree with everyone else but when she says

    "I saw the queen
    Swam out below her star on sea beneath
    Though I lifted up my hands to her
    She never lifted me"

    I think of it as confiding into Mary the mother of God. ( I once heard a priest say if God didn't answer his prayer he would go to Mary to ask her since she was more motherly? or something like that)

    And basically she asked Mary for a kind of love on earth.(thats what i did)

    For
    "Oh something's missing in me
    I felt it deep within me
    As lovers left me to bleed alone"

    And for that part i pretty much agree with it
    i interpret it as
    A: Even when we find love, theres still that feeling of something missing you like a longing( thats God)
    B: Just the fact that she wants find an actual love(as in a realtionship) but no-one right really came?
    I agree more with A

    well now that i actually break it down i see that i think everyone was right except at the queen part i think she's talking about Mary.
