I'm waiting
Wish I was watching you
In the daylight
A perfect view
This is always a favorite of mine.
Said I don't want to go
'Cause it means I'd have to throw
This element of mine inside

What if I don't want to be the lonely one?
The truth I know is this
I don't want to miss you more
Than I already do

I'm screaming
My lungs out
'Cause I'm wishing
You were here with me now
I'm impatient I apologize many times
But I'm human
And I'm selfish
Got the feeling
I should deal with this
But I'm hiding
Know one knows
…they don’t

So what if I don't want to be the lonely one?
The truth I know is this
I don’t want to miss you more
Than I already do

At sunrise
I find a new releasing
And moonlight
Creeping sounds of you tonight
Are you finding?
I still need to know
That you find
Amusing memory

What if I don't want to be the lonely one?
The truth I know is this
I don't want to miss you more, oh
What if I don't want to be the lonely one?
The truth I know is this
I don't want to miss you more
Than I already do
Than I already do

    This song is about love lost due to the fear off loss. Better to risk it all and possibly win love, then drive it away with your fears and up truly alone.

    This is a song of total regret and in missing the favorite person in his life. He blew it and she finally left. She decided she needed more than this and now she is gone forever. In the mornings things seem hopeful again yet by the time the evening comes it starts the cycle all over again.
