Missing You - John Waite

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 there's a 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 I might say.

There's a message in the wire
And I'm sending you this signal tonight.
You don't know how desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight.
In your world I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard to understand

And it'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.

And there's a message that I'm sending out like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload

I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone away
No I ain't missing you no matter what my friends say
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I can lie to myself.

And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight.
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone away
