Why are you so far from me?
In my arms is where you are to be
How long will you make me wait?
I don't know how much more I can take
I missed you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
How I do
Slowly counting down the days
Till I finally know your name
The way your hand feels round my waist
The way you laugh, the way your kisses taste
I missed you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
How I do
How I do
I've missed you but I haven't met you
Oh how I miss you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
Oh how I want to
Dear whoever you might be
I'm still waiting patiently

    In every instance, it's "I've missed you" not "I missed". You see and hear it better throughout this version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0GTdbffrNo

    To me this song is about no giving up hope. At times it is easy to feel alone and hopeless. I think of these two people looking around and seeing all of these happy people and feeling so alone but trying to hold on to the hope that they will find that one day too.

    To me this song is about finding your true love and not settling for less than you are worth and saving all of yourself for that one special person. And to remind yourself that that person is hopefully doing the same thing for you and thinking the same of you. To me this song is about my life, and my love it's that relatable.

    The meaning of this song is simple, the person is waiting for their one true love, their soulmate. Just think of two characters at a different place singing up to the moon, you will clearly understand what this song is supposed to mean.
