Sha-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la

You used to call me your angel
Said I was sent straight down from Heaven
You'd hold me close in your arms
I loved the way you felt so strong
I never wanted you to leave
I wanted you to stay here holding me

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once and a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

You used to call me your dreamer
And now I'm livin' out my dream
Oh how I wish you could see
Everything that's happening for me
I'm thinking back on the past
It's true that time is flying by too fast

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once and a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

I know you're in a better place, (yeah)
But I wish that I could see your face (oh)
I know you are where you need to be
Even though it's not here with me

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once and a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once and a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

    this song is very touching. i LOVE this song. miley is trying to show us that it's ALWAYS okay to cry. my grandmother passed away when i was 6 and it was very sad. i never knew this song yet.(i don't even think she even made the song yet) now that i am kinda grown up alittle i now want to try to make at her funeral this song play on the slideshow. but miley is very sweet and she HAS feelings! now i know she's made mistakes in her life. HAVEN'T WE? miley doesn't really wanna be a celebrity because people always have to make rumors and surround her all the time. i don't blame her! but she does know what it's like to lose someone special in your life! god bless you miley and your grandpa. miley,this is for you,remember he is is a BETTER place. god wanted him,and you have to respect that. but remember he's watching over you. so don't feel like he won't be able to see your celebrity life. he would have been so PROUD of you! go miley!

    this song is soo inspirational. i cry everytime i hear it! my great grandpa left me in 2009. some of my family members forget about him, but i don't. my heart for some reason doesn't want me to let him go just yet. he was like a dad to me. he always called me "honey" and one time my dad couldn't make it to something that i always dreamed to happen, and my grandpa said he would go! i loved him soo much. this song everytime makes me think about him. i miss you grandpa.:( one time i called him dad, and he was like "it's ok, i'm like a dad to you." then he hugged me. then one day, i heard he was in the hospital, i was in my house, coloring (random for a 14 year old i know) then my mom came in crying, and said he had left us. i cried and cried till his funeral. i miss him soo much. and this song is stating to us that it's always ok to cry. and miley know what it's like to lose someone you loved. thanks miley! you are letting me know that he is in a better place! and miley, just know he would be soo proud of how much you have accomplished this year miley. thanks!

    and i am deeply sorry to all of you who have lost someone special. trust me, i know what it's like. and if you would like to talk, just tell me where you want to talk at, (like what song) and me an whoever could chat. please let me know if you would like to chat. but, to all of you who have lost someone, just know if i was that person, i would have been so proud of you, even if you didn't do anything special. and they would be soo proud of you too. again, i am soo sorry for your losses...:(

    this song is just amazing! i can't stop crying! my grandma passed away 4 years ago and it has been rough. she was like everything to me. she was always there,she was like a tool i could always use without being asked. i know 4 years is a long time but i still think of her. i always go see her when i can. but she was just so special to me. i loved it when she smiled. it made me feel warm inside. it was like she was my mom. i loved her to death. but it was like a flower losing all it's petals. one day she was gone. i couldn't believe it. but this song always makes me think of her. and i wish my love to all of you who lost someone special. it's ok to cry and this is what miley is trying to show us. you see in the video she wasn't scared to cry. soo don't be scared. and to all of you who want to be mean to miley about the things she has done,there are people in this world that are worse than her.(not to be mean) but just think what if you lost someone that special in you're life and they meant everything to you? wouldn't you feel sad? and want to cry? so to all of you who want to be mean to miley,think,one day something will happen,but don't be mean cause you might hurt her feelings. she's a human being too y'know. and this is coming from a 10 year old girl.
