Everything But The Girl - Missing Lyrics



I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door
But you don't live there anymore

It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead
Of everyone
We'd walk behind while you would run

I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout
Down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you -
Like the deserts miss the rain

Back on the train
I ask why did I come again
Can I confess
I've been hanging around your old address?

And the years have proved
To offer nothing since you moved
You're long gone
But I can't move on

And I miss you -
Like the deserts miss the rain

I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door
I guess you don't live there anymore

It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you -
Like the deserts miss the rain

And I miss you -
Like the deserts miss the rain (deserts miss the rain)

    "I've got a fever and the only prescription is more COW bells!!!"
    The original and best version.
    ....and yet, still to this day with all the social media...I still can't find him....

  2. rayna eu

    One of the best songs of 90s
    Thumbs up if you're still listening in 2019..

    Anon Mous

    rayna eu it’s 2020 now... I listen to it on repeat lol

  3. Leonardo de Sousa Cordeiro

    This is a beautiful and haunting song and yet everytime a hear it I can only thing of one thing.

    MORE COWBELL!!!!!!!

  4. Jimmy Heard

    90s gold , even the video show the simplicity of the decade people were more real and less flashy
    "I've got a fever and the only prescription is more COW bells!!!"

  5. Lalo Lalo

    Reminds me of tapu Nyack and partying in the 90s in NYC... beautiful days to remember!

  6. Roald Shakleton

    More cowbell! Great song.

  7. Joao Pereira

    Rio de Janeiro ok!

  8. Robert M. Mungia

    In the 90's if someone moved and you didn't have their info.. they were just gone forever
    One of the best songs of 90s

  9. Julie McLagan

    Miss the 90's when i'd fall asleep with MTV on because they played only music videos at night. Big tech difference between then and now is the prevalence of high speed internet, smart phones and search engines. Big differences between then and now outside of tech are too many to mention.

  10. Renner

    betwen 10 betters of the 90's easy

  11. SassySophi55

    ....and yet, still to this day with all the social media...I still can't find him....

    The original and best version.

  14. Anne A. Pederson

    90s gold , even the video show the simplicity of the decade people were more real and less flashy
    In the 90's if someone moved and you didn't have their info.. they were just gone forever

  15. Ana Lasseter

    That case when the reimix is more known than original.
    Back when there’s no social media to know where this person might be.
    Some songs just can't never be forgotten!

  16. Alfredo José Gonçalves Dias

    londres nesta epoca deveria ser maravilhosa de visitar e morar, jah hoje com 666 no taliban refem do mundo eh muito sarro.

  17. The Real BAZOOKABUBBA

    I wish Everything but the Girl and Swing Out Sister switched the male producers in the group the new ones would be called Watt's with the new Sister and Andy's Thorn in his side!

  18. Paul Scotty Frewzy Frew

  32. Igor Kocjančič

  33. steve conn

    This band also misses food.

    Anon Mous

    steve conn I think it would be wise of you to look up Ben Watt and his illness before judging .

  34. dips 7_840

    MASTERPIECE PURE CLASS AND TALENT

  35. Dirk van der Merwe

    Such an unforgettable tune...

  36. Bridget Weiser

    This band is the greatest 👌🏻

  37. Bigtime1998

    Is it me or did popular music somehow go horrible wrong in the late 90's and haven't really recovered since?? Some great music has been made and is around since then, but not played on the radio. You gotta dig to find the good stuff these days.

    Anon Mous

    Bigtime1998 in my personal opinion, it started going downhill by 2007 but still listenable until about 2013 - 2019. Might still be too early to know yet for this year lol

  38. Paul Green

    Miss Meowmix you probably continue to eat them all instead of giving them to us skinny people.

  63. Don LeDoux

    Please,please,please.. make more music for all of us!!! ❤️❤️

  64. Order in Chaos

    2:51 "You've found some better PRACE"? Why didn't they fix it to say PLACE? Low budget? Don't tell me it's a Chinese version; that would be racist!

  65. Order in Chaos

    Thumbs up if you're listening in 2035

    Meat Hook Sodomy by Cannibal Corpse...and this

  72. Malcolm Lagares

  73. Steeve Daw

    Everything,but,the girl?? Music to breakdown on your own to.

  74. Ali Rose

    God this gave me chills. I loved and still love this song. The 90s had some good and terrible music and this was definitely the first.

  75. Do it Dex

    I moved to Chicago in my early 20s and I remember walking downtown and you were able to find something fun to do somewhere. No social media everything was word of mouth or on fliers pinned to some building. This song brings me back to those days.

  76. Loopy Gaming

    Love how that one vid called "I miss you like the deserts miss the rain" has about 15m more views than the official vid..

  77. Cielo Terra

  86. Colorfun608

    I remember this song as if it was yesterday

  87. Angela DeMartino

    I just heard this the other day in Home Depot from all places. It put me right back into the 90ies, when I lived another life and on another continent. It filled me with this old desperation I have no reason to feel.....One of the best songs back then.

  88. Silvio Benitez
