Hymn for the Missing Lyrics
But the night was growing dark
Thought you were beside me
but I reached and you were gone
Sometimes I hear you calling
From some lost and distant shore
I hear you crying softly for the
Way it was...

I think this song is about a guy loving a girl who moved far away and has no contact with the girl and he doesn't know where she is but the whole thing starts as them as children and the guy doesn't like the girl at first but when the boy becomes a teen he realizes that she's the one he wants but she is too far for him to reach and he would do anything to contact her to let her know how he feels that's what I'm going through right now the girl I love is far away and I have no contact with her but I know she has a boyfriend this song just kills me

It could perhaps be a paradox to a human being's innocent and dark side. Siding between purity and sin is a struggle that everyone faces. When you face a hardship in life, it's harder to stay pure in your ways. And when you fade into the darkness, scars are left behind, leaving your innocent reputation "lost and wounded". The good side of the person could be ready to give into temptation, questioning whether their innocence would find darkness again, or if darkness was beginning to search a way back into the innocence of their soul. Or most likely, it could be the person's dark side searching for the pureness again. I just over-analyzed this, but this notion popped into my head. And it's coming from a major Red fanatic.

I think he's talking to someone who died.
he's asking, trying to make sure that she/he is alright, maybe.

My view is God talking to a lost soul, and how he struggles trying to get us closer to Him. He wonders why people give into temptations and begin to turn away for things that He knows are worthless. If you look at that way, it makes a lot of sense, but knowing the lyricists of this song, it has a multitude of meanings, that's one that just stuck out.

It is about a loved one leaving them and he misses them very much. This might not be right but it is what I think
