Nice vocal harmonies and creative arrangement. Nice lyrics about an ordinary every day subject which many would pass off as boring but you made it interesting and worth listening to. Some nice lines and accompaniment happening in the background. Reminds me of music by the great Michael Franks. Song leaves me with a smile where there wasn't one before. Nice job!

    - Dave Haddad (CenterPeace)

A very catchy tune!! I really like the lyrics, paints a great picture. Quality of the instrumentation (would also make a great instrumental) & hook stand out.

Lyrics

He Missed The Way she did her hair
The way it shimmered
As it tumbled here and there
How it flowed down past her shoulders
How it floated on the air
He Missed The Way she did her hair

He Missed The Way she filled her clothes
The way she knew just how much surface to expose
From the sonnet of her bonnet
To the polish on her toes
He Missed The Way she filled her clothes
He Missed The Way

He missed the laughter in those soft brown eyes
He missed the smile that made him whole
He missed the plannin' and the schemin' girl
Who filled his ever changin' world
With warmth, and love, and simple pleasures

He Missed The Way she called his name
Voice like a whisper in a gentle summer rain
Like a quiet invitation
To a shady country lane
He Missed The Way she called his name
He Missed The Way

He missed the woodland walks in dappled light
He missed the drives through the autumn hills
He even missed the fussin'
And infrequent boughts of cussin'
Cheeks all flushed and ripe for pickin'

He Missed The Way she did her hair
The way it shimmered as it tumbled here and there
How it flowed down past her shoulders
How it floated on the air
He Missed The Way she did her hair
But, missed the the way to keep her there
He Missed The Way
He Missed The Way
