“Missing” by Bruce Springsteen (1996)

Lyrics:

Woke up this morning, was a chill in the air
Went into the kitchen, my cigarettes were lying there
Your jacket hung on the chair where you left it last night
Everything was in place, everything seemed all right
But you were missing
Missing…

Last night I dreamed the sky went black
You were drifting down, couldn’t get back
You were lost and troubled so far from home
I reached for you, my arms were like stone
I woke and you were missing
Missing…

I searched for something to explain
In the whispering rain, the trembling leaves
Tell me baby where did you go
You were here just a moment ago

There’s nights I still hear your footsteps fall
Your key in the door, your voice in the hall
Your smell drifts through the bedroom
I lie awake, but I don’t move
