Hi, everybody! None of the stupid radio stations around where I live ever tell who songs are by, can any one tell me if they know this song and who the artist is? The main lyrics go something like:

"There was a girl who had the faith to move a mountain..."
and
"I've been searching for the missing person..."

Any help would be really appreciated!

Thanks!

Could this be it? It's from Michael W. Smith's "Live The Life" CD.

Missing Person

Another question in me
One for the powers that be
It's got me thrown and so
I Put on my poker face
And try to figure it out
This undeniable doubt
A common occurrence
Feeling so out of place

Guarded and cynical now
Can't help but wondering how
My heart evolved into a
Rock beating inside of me
So I reel, such a stoic ordeal
Where's that feeling that I don't feel?

Chorus:

There was a boy who had the faith to move a mountain
And like a child he would believe without a reason
Without a trace he disappeared into the void and
I've been searching for that missing person

Under a lavender moon
So many thoughts consume me
Who dimmed that glowing light
That once burned so bright in me
Is this a radical phase
A problematical age
That keeps me running
From all that I used to be

Is there a way to return
Is there a way to unlearn
That carnal knowledge
That's chipping away at my soul
I've been gone too long
Will I ever find my way home?

Chorus:

There was a boy who had the faith to move a mountain
And like a child he would believe without a reason
Without a trace he disappeared into the void and
I've been searching for that missing person
He used to want to try to walk the straight and narrow
He had a fire and he could feel it in the marrow
It's been a long time and I haven't seen him lately but
I've been searching for that missing person

P.S. It *is* a good song, isn't it?

That's the exact same song, except they replace "There was a boy..." with "There was a girl...", and it's by a female lyracist(sic).

Hmm... must be a remake...

Thanks a ton for the info, maybe now that I know the name I can find out who did the new version.

I hate radio stations...

THANKS AGAIN!

Plugging ``Missing Person'' in at AllMusic yields 6 results, 3 of which are actually different. Looks like the song was written by Michael W. Smith along with some combination of Bourgeois/Kirkpatrick/Lisbon. It appears on one of Smith's albums and three compilations, one of which Smith doesn't appear on (Praise to the Beat, vol. 1), but Amy Grant does. Amy Grant, as it turns out, has sung with Smith, sung Smith's songs, and given songs to Smith.

My bet is that the mystery remake was done by Amy Grant.

Then again, I know absolutely jack about CCM/Gospel, so it really could be anyone. Your best to bet is to call the radio station next time you hear it. Most stations are, in my experience, pretty good about telling you what they're playing.
