about

This is one of my favorite tracks of this album. Simplicity in instrumentation allows for a clear definition of the lyrics and vocals. For such a heartbreaking song about an old friend passing away, I can only hope you hear the pain and passion I put into this one. It's dedicated to my best friend and dog, Carlos. Miss you, buddy.

lyrics

I know you're gone.
You're not coming back, it's been way too long.
And as pages have turned and stages I've learned,
that there ain't no return to a book that's been burned.

But I know, don't have to tell me twice.
I'm just missing the warmth at my side.

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.

But I know. You fell.
Happened so quickly, before I could say, "Farewell."
And the call I received brought me down on my knees
as I begged and I plead, "Please. Please don't leave me."

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.

Oh my God, they're gone; all of the simple smiles and love live seems to cost.
Oh your eyes, they've gone cold with frost as your fluttering heart beats a flattened line across.

Cause I miss you. Oh I miss you.
It's been years since I've laughed unrestrained.
Oh I miss you. Yeah, I miss you.
The silence is wrong and it’s strange.
Please come back.
