Song Lyrics about Missing You


So often the lyrics of songs can explain how we feel. Listening to songs that fit our mood is a way to realize that we all have experienced the same emotions at some point.


Every time I think of you

I always catch my breath

And I’m still standing here

And you’re miles away

And I’m wondering why you left

And there’s a storm that’s raging

Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name in certain circles

And it always makes me smile

I spend my time

Thinking about you

And it’s almost driving me wild

And that’s my heart that’s breaking

Down this long distance line tonight

I ain’t missing you at all

Since you’ve been gone away

I ain’t missing you

No matter

What my friends say

Except from

“Missing You” John Waite


Sleepless hours and dreamless nights and far aways

Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

Heaven knows and lord it shows when I’m away

Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here-

Except from

Chicago “Wishing you were here”



Though I’m missing you

(Although I’m missing you)

I’ll find a way to get through

(I’ll find a way to get through)

Living without you

Cause you were my sister, my strength, and my pride

Only God may know why, still I will get by

Who would’ve known, that you had to go

But so suddenly, so fast

How could it be, that a sweet memory worthy would

Be all that we’ve have plan

Now that you’re gone, every day I go on (I go on)

But life’s just not the same (life’s just not the same)

I’m so empty inside, and my tears I can’t hide

But I’ll try, I’ll try to face the pain

Except from

Missing You Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan


Since you’ve been away

I’ve been down and lonely

Since you’ve been away

I’ve been thinking of you

Trying to understand

The reason you left me

What were you going through?

I’m missing you

Tell me why the road turns

Ooh ooh

I’m missing you

Tell me why the road turns

As I look around

I see things that remind me

Just to see you smile

Made my heart fill with joy

I’ll still recall

All those dreams we shared together

Where did you run to, boy?

I’m missing you

Tell me why the road turns

Excerpt from

“Missing You” Diana Ross


Well, I’ve been haunted in my sleep

You’ve been starring in my dreams

Lord I miss you

I’ve been waiting in the hall

Been waiting on your call

When the phone rings

It’s just some friends of mine that say,

Excerpt from

“Miss you” Rolling Stones


I talk to you but it’s not the same as touchin’ you

And every time you whisper my name, I want to run to you

We’ll be together, it won’t be long, it won’t be long

But it feels like forever, and it’s hard to be strong

Baby ’cause I’m missing you now

And it’s drivin’ me crazy

How I’m needin’ you baby

I’m missing you now

Can’t wait ’till I’m alone with you

To show you how I’m missing you now

Wishin’ you were here by my side is all that I can do

Got my arms around my pillow at night, they should be holdin’ you

Thought I was stronger, how could I know, how could I know

I can’t take this much longer

It’s so hard on my soul

Excerpt from

“Missing you Now” Michael Bolton
