Beck - Missing lyrics

Song: Missing

Artist: Beck

Album: Guero

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
