Could this be it? It's from Michael W. Smith's "Live The Life" CD.
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?
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?
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?
I'm going twenty-four hours a day...I can't seem to stop - "Turn Up The Radio", Autograph
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.
