I Wish I Wasn’t Missing You

I Wish I Wasn’t Missing You

We never count the days….we never climb the walls
we play hit or miss…..and read about the falls
but you’ll pick me up….I’ll try to do the same
tonight is gonna last….until we meet again

I can hear you now….through the back screen door
taking in the music….and reaching out for more
the stars they don’t align….they’re drunk and dancing shy
trying to find their place….in a big old nasty sky

I wish I wasn’t missing you
I wish I wasn’t missing you
So many other things to do…
instead I’m sitting here alone missing you

I’ll develop all these pictures….inside of my head
without dragging my ass…..out of this bed
when that morning light….becomes too much to bear
and I start to wish….that I didn’t care…

I wish I wasn’t missing you
I wish I wasn’t missing you
So many other things to do…
instead I’m sitting here alone missing you

bridge:
if a clock is buried
does it still tell the time
or does it say “to hell with it…
it’s time to get what’s mine…”
if the day that we met…
is pulled up with regret….
not yet my friend…please not yet

I wish I wasn’t missing you
I wish I wasn’t missing you
So many other things to do…
instead I’m sitting here alone missing you
