I live for the phone, I die for the mail
I took your picture right off the nail
And put it right by my bed
So I could see you instead
Of the darkness of night

I hold conversations with you in my mind
They only tighten the knot deep inside
And teh aching won't end
'Til I hold you again
If I only survive

Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you

I started a letter, I stared at your name
There wasn't a line that didn't echo my pain
There was no sound at all
But the slow lonely fall
Of an unspoken tear

Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you

Life may take us in different directions
But I always end up deeper, deeper in my true affection

Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you
