I haven't seen you in a while
I haven't breathed you in a while
I can't remember the last time we laughed

I haven't watched you in a while
I haven't touched you in a while
And time rolls on by so quietly so fast

I wish that you were here with me now

Lately, oh maybe
I need you I need you
Like the skin I wear
Like fire that needs air
Lately, oh baby
I miss you
I don't know what to do
Cause I'm not myself without you

Every morning I'm up
Painting my face with the ashes of us
Cause I can't remember the last time you smiled

I'm not saying you were never enough
But I've always tried to be so tough
Now I can't lift my hand to meet my eyes

When I'm lookin' for ya babe
I wish that you could have stayed

Lately, oh maybe
I need you I need you
Like the skin I wear
Like fire that needs air
Lately, oh baby
I miss you
I don't know what to do
Cause I'm not myself
No I'm not myself
No I'm not myself

I can't feel you anymore
You're gone when I blink
And I feel so small
Cause I'm not myself
No I'm not myself
No I'm not myself

Cause Lately, oh maybe
I need you I need you
I need you I need you

Cause lately, oh maybe
I need you I need you
Like the skin I wear
Like fire that needs air
Lately, oh baby
I miss you
I don't know what to do
Cause I'm not myself
No I'm not myself
No I'm not myself
Without you
