Missing Part

A fleeting glance, a gentle touch
Feel something there, don't know how much
You pull me close, it never breaks
Make me promise that I'll always stay

Your voice it echoes, constantly
Head is aching, can hardly breathe
And even though you keep lookin' at me
As the work man says, might take forever to see

But I still love you
With every inch and ounce of myself
You are my missing part

And even more than that
The love I have runs deeper for you
It makes up the threads of my heart

Life is simple, but it's not that long
And it often feels that every choice you make is wrong
So if something makes you happy, then just hold on
'Cause at any moment, it could all be gone

So though I wish that my heart was closed
It's forever open, guess that's just how it goes
You may not know how much joy you bring
Gotta keep on holding, and that is why I sing

That I still love you
With every inch and ounce of myself
You are my missing part

And even more than that
The love I have runs deeper for you
It makes up the threads of my heart

A laugh so endless, a smile so bright
Exchanging stories throughout the night
It's 4am now, sun's about to rise
You say it's time for me to go, and all I do is sigh

The moonlit interstate, it breaks in two
And I think we both know this is what we gotta do
But if the map I'm looking at is filled with truth
Then in time, my road will bring me back to you

'Cause I still love you
With every inch and ounce of myself
You are my missing part

And even more than that
The love I have runs deeper for you
It makes up the threads of my heart
