I miss those blue eyes
How you kiss me at night
I miss the way we sleep

Like there's no sunrise
Like the taste of your smile
I miss the way we breathe

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

I see your blue eyes
Everytime I close mine
You make it hard to see
Where I belong to
When I'm not around you
It's like I'm alone with me

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

    This song reminds me of my boyfriend’s best friend. I somehow wound up having feelings for my boyfriend’s best friend. The last day we were around the best friend, he treated me and my boyfriend like total crap. I assumed he hated me and was taking it out on my boyfriend so that my boyfriend would stop bringing me around to visit. After we left the friend’s house, I told my boyfriend that I never wanted to be around his friend again. My wish was granted. The friend died in a wreck a few weeks later. After his death, I managed to find out why he was so awful to me and my boyfriend on that last day we were around him. He loved me. He couldn’t stand not being able to treat me the way he wanted to treat me, but he couldn’t stand the thought of being disloyal to his best friend. He couldn’t tolerate being around me and my boyfriend while we were together, so he washed his hands of both of us. Since he’s dead and gone, I can’t exactly tell him all of the things I SHOULD have told him. Take my advice--NEVER let the important things go unspoken. A shattered heart is far more painful than wounded pride.

    This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. We had always been interested in each other and this summer we finally told eachother how we felt. But he cheated on me while we dated, and then broke up with me for no good reason at all. We didnt talk for the longest time and then at the end of summer we finally saw eachother angain and he regretted everything he had done and apologized and i forgave him.. and it was worse because we dont live in the same town, i just summer where he lives and that is the only time we see eachother. So he told me he still has feelings for me and always had and wished that he hadnt have messed up, but i just hear about him flirting with all of these other girls at his school from my friends. But i know that when we are together we share something special and we both feel the same way. and everyone keeps telling me to forget about him but i just cant.. So go with your heart and tell him how you feel, dont hold it in. except he has brown eyes, but this song just makes everything better so thank you colbie!

    I have an x girlfriend that I told everything my heart had to say. I offered myself entirely to her on many heart wrenching occasions. I was on the edge of rearranging my entire life/location and world to try "just one more time" with her again, but i needed to hear and know where her heart was too. Seemed like no matter what i said, offered, or tried she would, in a sense, repeat situations that had a hand in ruining our love and hope before.
    She put the final nail in, the day that she got up the courage to talk about it and tell her feelings to me. She asked me to call her when I got done with church so she could tell me all of the things she had on her heart about me and "us".
    I tried to get a hold of her that day after church, for about three hours. she eventually answered and it turned out that she was out drinking with one of her other x's that is now just a friend.
    She made her choice to have a good day drinking with a friend rather than follow through on her word and tell me how she felt and what was going on in her heart.
    Since then I closed the door and hardly speak to her because I haven't had much to say-and wasnt sure if I wanted to hear reasons or excuses anymore. i just started moving forward with my life again. Today I received a message from her referring me to the this song.

    These are powerful words and no matter how much one could feel them and mean them- sometimes actions speak louder than words. Not sure if she will ever read this or not, but if you do...I am sorry... this is goodbye again, and it is goodbye for the last time.
