  • Lyrics
  • Thundering news hits me like a snowball
    Struck in my face and shattering
    Covering me in a fine powder and mist
    And mixing in with my tears

    And I'm fifty seven but I could be seven years old,
    Cos I will never be able
    To comprehend the expansiveness
    Of what I've just learned

    But you, have disappeared
    You have been released
    You are flecks of light
    You are missed

    Somewhere, spinning round the sun
    Circling the moon
    Traveling through time
    You are missed

    Walking through unfamiliar streets
    And I'm shaking unfamiliar hands
    And I'm hearing unfamiliar laughs
    And lovely language I don't understand

    It's late October in Copenhagen
    The skies are grey, the snow is falling
    I see my breath outside, I'm freezing
    I'm motionless, I'm disbelieving

    But you, have disappeared
    You have been released
    You are flecks of light
    You are missed

    Somewhere, spinning round the sun
    Circling the moon
    Traveling through time
    You are missedWriter/s: LUCINDA WILLIAMS
