Come From Away the Musical - Something's Missing Lyrics


DIANE
So...

NICK
So...

DIANE
So you'll call?

NICK
As soon as I get back.

NICK and DIANE
And then he left.
And then I was alone.

JANICE
Back to the way that things were

OZ
Back to the simple and plain

DWIGHT
For five days the weather had been so nice

BONNIE
But as they boarded, it started to rain.

BEULAH
At the end of the day,
Everyone left

OZ
We all tried to go back to normal, except

CLAUDE
The town was more quiet and
Somehow far emptier

BONNIE
We all looked the same,
But we're different than we were

BEULAH
The gym was a sight
As I staked the last cot

DWIGHT
Thank-you's written everywhere
And things they forgot

CLAUDE
The board of health says
Clean it up - every part

ALL
So we start.

CLAUDE
7:42 a.m.

ALL
Sunday.

CLAUDE
September 16th.
After five days, they just ran
the zamboni over the ice.
And played hockey.
With the Plane People gone,
Gander Town Council declares the
state of emergency over and I head home.
We were all exhausted - just spent
Most of us had been up for
five days straight working.
But somehow I can't sleep,
so I sit down and turn on the television.
And I just start crying.
I hadn't let myself cry the whole time.

ALL
Something's gone.

BOB
Out the airplane window, I can see Manhattan.
And there's still smoke.
And suddenly I'm afraid all over again.
And there are others afraid too.

ALL
Something's over.

BOB
I know Newark airport.
You could pull a truck over on the side
of the turnpike
And shoot a grenade launcher
at a plane coming in.

ALL
Something's done.

BOB
But nothing happens.

KEVIN T
I drive Kevin back to his place.
We don't say much.

ALL
Something's missing.

HANNAH
I go straight to his firehouse.
Part of me wondered if they
just weren't telling me.
But...they still don't know.

ALL
Something's changed.

NICK
My flat is the same as I left it.
But emptier.
Quieter.
I start to unpack,
And I find the camera.

ALL
Something's rearranged.

ALI
On the way to my restaurant,
I drop my daughter at school
But she won't go in.
She says she's scared.
What do I tell her?

ALL
Something's strained.

BOB
Back at my dad's house,
I look out the window
At this view I've looked at my whole life.
And now a part of it
Something's missing.

ALL
Something's missing.

KEVIN T
Kevin breaks up with me.
And then he quits and moves back home to New York.
And I miss him.
I miss his jokes.

ALL
Something's lost.

DIANE
Nick and I call each other when we can.
But...it's awful.
The only reason we met was because
this terrible thing happened.

ALL
Something's cost.

BOB
I go down to Ground Zero
Which is like the end of the world.
It's literally still burning.

ALL
Something's not.

BOB
My dad asks,
"Were you okay where you were stranded?"
How do I tell him that I wasn't just okay
I was so much better.

ALL
Something's missing.

BEVERLEY
I phone American and say
"I'm ready to go wherever you want to send me."
But they say take a few days off.
I phone every day and I am back at the airport on Thursday.
And it's empty. Silent.
It's just - a different place.
And I stop what few passengers there are and I say,
"Thank you for still flying."

BEULAH
Hello.
You've reached Gander Academy,
This is Beulah Davis.
How can I help you?

HANNAH
...He's gone.
It's over.

BEULAH
...Oh, no. I'm so sorry, Hannah.
I'm so sorry.

HANNAH
You are here
At the end of a moment
At the end of the world
You are here
On the edge of the ocean
Where the story ends.

BEULAH
Where the river meets the sea.

HANNAH
Here

ALL (underneath)
Something's gone.
Something's over.

NICK
Across the Atlantic.

KEVIN T
At the office.

BEVERLEY
In an airport.

DIANE
In my house.

BOB
On an island.

ALL (underneath)
Something's rearranged.

BEULAH
In a classroom.

JANICE
At the station.

OZ
In my car.

ALL
And wherever you are
(Something's gone)
You are here.
