Cold Chisel – Missing A Girl lyrics

Looking through the tarmac rain
At the rows of giant birds
They're all feeding at the gates,
There are tails from all over the world

A million people in between
Hurry by the TV screens
And I just sit here missing a girl

Cuppa coffee, airport bench
Carry on, and me
Something messed up my connection
To where I want to be

Something happened, the line dropped out
Something she don't wanna talk about
And I just sit here missing a girl

Overhead the speakers tell me
One more delay
I hear the numbers
But my heart's a million miles away

She made it clear we could still be friends
But she won't be there to meet me at the other end
And I just sit here missing a girl

She made it clear,
I try to see it through these tears
I know it's true
And I just sit here missing a girl
