I prayed heaven today 
Would bring its hammer down on me 
And pound you out of my head 
I can't think with you in it 

I dragged all that I owned 
Down a dirt road to find you 
My shoes worn out and used 
They can't take me much farther 

Something always takes the place 
Of missing pieces 
You can take and put together even though 
You know there's something missing 

The sun burned a hole in my roof 
I can't seem to fix it 
I hope the rain doesn't come 
And wash me down the gutter 

She rides in a car like a queen on a card 
And the guns of her mind aim a line 
Straight at mine to a heart that was broke 
Tried to feel but got choked in the smoke of 
A desert 
A beach with no leisure a night that's so blue 
Feed the aching in you and the background 
Birds take a flight from the earth 
Where the bonfire burns and the night 
Current turns on a lifeboat floating 
Down a river of sleep 
I can't see her hollow eyes 
I'm walkin' along with my boots full of rocks 
I can't believe these tears were mine 
I'll give them to you to put away in a box 

Something always takes the place of 
Missing pieces you can take and put 
Together even though 
You know there's something missing 
Something always missing always 
Someone missing something
