(Rick Giles - Susan Longacre)
I live for the phone
I die for the mail
I took your picture
Right off the nail.
And put it right by my bed
So I could see you instead
Of the darkness of night.
I hold conversations
With you in my mind
They only tighten
This knot deep inside
And the aching won't end
Till I hold you again
If I only survive.
Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you.
I started a letter
I stared at your name
There wasn't a line
That didn't echo my pain
There was no sound at all
But the snow lonely falls
Of an unspoken tear.
Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you.
Life may take us
In different directions
But I always end up deeper
Deeper in my true affection.
Why did you have to go
Why am I missing you so
One heartbeat at a time
I'm going out of my mind
Missing you, missing you.
Missing you, missing you
Missing you, missing you
Missing you, missing you
Missing you, darling.
Missing you baby.
Missing you, missing you...
