Missing Person Afternoon (The Story)

Oh Louisa, oh my darling, It wasn't supposed to be this way Who'd have thought, after all It wasn't supposed to be this way But I was wrong, (and here is where you have to Imagine the rest) WRONG I was wrong, (It's different than words now) On a missing person afternoon It's a Monet, like a daydream Glowing in the wandering light You had an angle, I had mine Needles in the haystack But I was wrong (and here is where you have to Imagine the rest) WRONG I was wrong, (It's different than words now) On a missing person afternoon I imagine where you are, I imagine what you can see I imagine where you are, what you can see I'll remember you, but I imagine Almost in the same breath The colors fade, in the dusk You pull your sweater close around you I was wrong, (there's a mystery on the road tonight) WRONG I was wrong, (and either way it's a leap of faith) On a missing person afternoon, Missing person afternoon Missing person afternoon
