    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl

A song about lost friends, lovers, fathers, mothers, brothers; surely everyone's been there in some way? I've just listened to this on TOTP2 on BBC4 TV here in the UK, and although I've always liked the melody and the timbre of this record, it's lyrics have only just touched me for the first time.

To me, it's about my old mate. We were very close, but we allowed ourselves we drifted apart. I went looking for him recently, only to find that he had passed away. What effort does a phone call, a letter, an email or a christmas card take? None - but really that's all it takes to keep in touch.

I do indeed miss him like the deserts miss the rain, as do the young family he sadly left behind.

    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl

This song could nhave been written for my brother, its lyrics are so spookily so true to life, especially the 'how could you be dead-you always were two streets ahead' then the reference to the train, (there was a railway station right behind his house). We have certainly missed him like the desserts missedthe rain!!!!! PPrecious doesn't evan begin to describe him.

Being in the military this song hits close to home, constantly moving from place to place. I'm at the point in my life where all I want to do is go home. The lyrics, and sound make this song a treasure

    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl

i can totally relate with laurie, wether it's love or a past one the pain is in some way the same it's been 7 years since he's gone..still crying for him...i can't/won't erase the pain and empty spot you left behind. He was my father when i need a real dad..if tears could bring you back just for 5 minutes i would force my tearducts to produce more tears but i know ur with my grandma right know away from all the pain, guess i took the pain and fight it... as for the love part seeing her with someone else still hurts me knowing we could have such a great future our own home and things and know you moved with him having a house and i'm dwelling in memories of a broken past as i pass your house everything comes back your beautiful long hair your sweet face i definitly miss you. knowing the fact you still love me somehow makes it even harder when i talk to your parents it's such a relieve it's like everything's on my shoulders it's killing me but it's so sweet i guess your my forbidden drugs i need...


    ------ About the song One Place performed by Everything But The Girl

Few people including EBTG fans give enough credit to this song, including myself since not long ago. But if you listen to it with an open heart, you really discover all the lightness, gentleness and beauty in it. I would like to quote this passage REAL genuine and striking:
"In the end, if you take care
You can be happy or unhappy anywhere"

    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl

In an era of facebook etc, the concept of not being able to find most people is kind of out of date. But it's even more difficult, in some ways, knowing what the person you love is doing after all these years. Seeing what I have missed and wished I could have. When I see pictures of her it just kills me. I am literally crying over my keyboard as I try to type this.

However the song is still relevant to me, since I don't know where she lives, and there's no way to reasonably find out. I know it sounds creepy/stalkerish, but I have often found myself driving around old places where we used to be together. The feeling is so intensely sad, and this song captures it perfectly.

    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl

There are so many lines on this lyrics that are painful to the heart but
"I miss you like the deserts miss the rain" will always be one of my favourites.
One of the best lines ever, and EBTG deserves to be in the history of music just because of it, if for anything else.
One of my favourite "singable" songs which i do often, with deligth on every verse...

    ------ About the song Missing performed by Everything But The Girl


I love, love this song. It describes exactly the story of my first true love... he had to moved... and tears can come to me specially to the lyrics: "the years have proved to offer nothing since you moved, you're long gone, but I can't move on"... I miss him, and he'll always be irreplaceable.
