I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
Missin’ you

[Verse 1:]
Mmm thinking back from yesterday
All the things I could’ve said, but didn’t say to you
Should’ve begged you to stay
Heard that you’ve moved on
Heard you’ve been doing okay
Been thinking about you all the time
Do you ever reminisce
Do I be crossing your mind
All the tears and wasted time
Nothings been the same since you went away

[Hook:]
Girl I know that I used to be your man
Used to have you here in the palm of my hand
I let you slip away
Just like grains of sand

[Chorus:]
When I’m lying in my bed at night
Wish I was holdin’ you, wish I was touchin’ you (Baby)
I cry myself to sleep at night
Wish I was kissin’ you instead of just missin’ you
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on

[Verse 2:]
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Inside me there’s so many questions why
?? Is to live a lie
But in my heart now it’s just too late
It’s just like staring up in the pouring rain
I refuse to believe that I’ll never see you again
All that’s going on inside my brain
That I can’t seem to get it straight
'Cos

[Hook:]
Girl I know that I used to be your man
Used to have you here in the palm of my hand
I let you slip away
Just like grains of sand

[Chorus:]
When I’m lying in my bed at night
Wish I was holdin’ you, wish I was touchin’ you (Baby)
I cry myself to sleep at night
Wish I was kissin’ you instead of just missin’ you
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on

And If I ever hurt you
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
I think about the good times that we had
And there’s no way they can be gone

I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
I be missin’ you, missin’ you, missin’ you
Missin’ you

[Chorus:]
When I’m lying in my bed at night
Wish I was holdin’ you, wish I was touchin’ you (Baby)
I cry myself to sleep at night
Wish I was kissin’ you instead of just missin’ you
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on

When I’m lying in my bed at night
Wish I was holdin’ you, wish I was touchin’ you (Baby)
I cry myself to sleep at night
Wish I was kissin’ you instead of just missin’ you
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on
Girl I keep holdin’ on (I keep holdin’ on)
Girl I keep holdin’ on
