Look a Little Closer (at that poster on the wall)

Story Behind The Song

After receiving an email alret for a missing person in Philly, Daniel Imbo, I started researching these types of cases and wrote this song, hopefully to raise awareness of missing persons posters. They are not just a picture, that's someone somebody loves.

Song Description

Someone looking for someone missing, asking for your help

Look a Little Closer

Verse I
There?s a poster on the building by the place that I last saw her,
With a number I pray someone?s gonna call,
No news is ever good news when someone you love is missing,
I?d give anything to hear anything at all

I know these things don?t always have a happy ever after,
But my faith and hope is stronger than my fear,

Chorus
So look a little closer
At that poster on the wall,
Maybe you?ve seen something,
Anything at all,
Cause that?s not another picture,
That?s someone I love,
Look a little closer,
At that poster on the wall.

Verse II
I hold a candle singing hymns here on a flower-covered sidewalk,
As Amazing grace floats gently down the block,
I cannot hear her voice sing or see her standing with me,
But she?s here tonight in everybody?s heart,

So I pray this time I?ll finally find my happy ever after,
And all it is I?m asking you to do tonight,

Chorus
So look a little closer
At that poster on the wall,
Maybe you?ve seen something,
Anything at all,
Cause that?s not another picture,
That?s someone I love,
Look a little closer,
At that poster on the wall

Bridge
It?s hard to know the way I feel,
Helpless,restless,time stands still,
There?s a million just like me,
Who pray all night when they can?t sleep

Chorus
So look a little closer
At the posters on the wall,
Maybe you?ve seen someone,
Somebody loves,
And you might be their hero,
Who helps bring them home,
Look a little closer,
At those poster on the wall
