about

I actually wrote a song named Missing You back in 2012, about my girlfriend at the time being away. We broke up last year… this is only semi-autobiographical I promise.

lyrics

You were mine, to have and hold
I wanted us to work, all along
I said “We’ll be together til we’re old.
What on earth between us could go wrong?”

But in time, you went cold.
The days, the nights, the fights, they all grew long.
And for a moment, I was bold.
You see, I thought that we did not belong.

I’m at our favourite coffee shop, and they didn’t recognise me
And this double latte… well it bites without you

And though I want you in my arms…

We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
I’m missing you.

And I’ve tried, to substitute you
I don’t remember my last sober weekend
I thought by now you’d be off my mind
But the days, the months have passed and you’re still here

You’re on a plane to Melbourne, and you’re going there without me
And my memories of there, well all coloured with you.

We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
I’m missing you.
