Intro (4 bars)

Verse 1
The room is great
the waters nice
there's a California chardonnay on ice
the view from here
on seventeen
looks just like a picture in a magazine
the crashing waves
the ocean breeze
makes the perfect setting here for you and me
I see two silouhettes
pass through a lovers moon
but my heart's a melancholy shade of blue

Cause the only thing I'm missing here is you
yes the only thing I'm missing here is you

I miss your face
your loving touch and your embrace
I miss your smile
I haven't seen in quite awhile
I miss your laugh
that always makes the darkness pass
I miss your voice
your point of view
I miss you

Yes the only thing I'm missing here is you
Yes the only thing I'm missing here is you

Verse 2
An old man holds
his fishing pole
working through the night beneath the lantern glow
A lighthouse stands
and shows the way
guides a vessel safely to the shipping lane
the captain blows
a warning sound
breaking up the deaf'ning silence all around
the deep and hollow tone
reflects my lonely mood
just a few more days before my work is through

and the only thing I'm missing here is you
yes the only thing I'm missing here is you

I miss you baby
