SOMETHING MISSING

Kelly Dorsey

"Something Missing" is a song from the new musical, The Comics Code, which had its first public reading on April 23 2023 before a packed house at Plummer Park, West Hollywood.

Kelly Dorsey performed "Something Missing" - a song about a damaged girl considering whether to accept a date from the young and charming Stan Lee - and she electrified the room with the power of her performance.

The lyrics are below, and we submit the song for consideration by the Hollywood Independent Music Awards.

SOMETHING MISSING

Music and lyrics: Fletcher Crossman

I MIGHT AS WELL,

AND IF YOU KISS ME I WON'T TELL

BUT DON'T EXPECT THE QUEEN OF HEARTS

ONE ROOM, ONE DOOR

WHAT INTROVERT COULD ASK FOR MORE?

COZ WHEN YOU STEP OUTSIDE

THAT'S WHEN THE TROUBLE REALLY STARTS

WITH MY WORDS I TELL YOU YES

BUT IN MY SOUL, I MUST CONFESS

THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING,

SOMETHING MISSING

SOMETHING MISSING THERE I GUESS,

MAYBE I SHOULD STAY AT HOME ON MY OWN

 

BUT IF YOU CALL MY PHONE

I MIGHT JUST TRY.

THE BROKEN GIRL AND THE BROOKLYN GUY

AND WHEN WE START, IT'S ALL A GAME -

BUT WHEN IT ENDS

WITH BLAME TO SPARE, AND RAZOR FRIENDS

WHAT BECOMES OF THE BROKEN ONES?

THEY JUST GET BROKE AGAIN.

 

DESPITE IT ALL, I TELL YOU YES,

COZ IN MY SOUL, I MUST CONFESS

THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING,

SOMETHING MISSING

SOMETHING MISSING HERE I GUESS

AND I'LL NOT FIND IT STAYING HOME ON MY OWN

 

SO CALL MY PHONE

I MIGHT AS WELL,

AND IF YOU KISS ME I WON'T TELL.
