Beyoncé – I Miss You lyrics
I thought that things like this get better with time
But I still need you, why is that?
You're the only image in my mind
So I still see you... around

I miss you, like everyday
Wanna be with you, but you're away
Said I miss you, missing you insane
But if I got with you, could it feel the same?

Words don't ever seem to come out right
But I still mean them, why is that?
It hurts my pride to tell you how I feel
But I still need to, why is that?

I miss you, like everyday
Wanna be with you, but you're away
I said I miss you, missing you insane
But if I got with you, could it feel the same?

It don't matter who you are
It's so simple, a feeling
But it's everything
No matter who you love
It is so simple, a feeling
But it's everything

I miss you, like everyday
Wanna be with you, but you're away
I said I miss you, missing you insane
But if I got with you, could it feel the same?

It don't matter who you are
It's so simple, a feeling
But it's everything
No matter who you love
It is so simple, a feeling
But it's everything

    He's hurt you so many times. He was once your everything and now none of that means anything to him. He's gone. Just up and left. And your trying to hate him but you can't. You still miss him. And even despite all the heartache and all the tears and everything you've been through you still want to be with him. It's like an attachment that can't be put into words so all you can say is I miss you!

    I love this song! Relates to me as I really miss my ex but I wonder if things could ever feel the same like it was. 6 months relationship. Left me because I loved him. Silly me didn't know loving someone was a crime. He has a girlfriend nw but e's still the only image on my mind. How I dedicated my whole self to him, leaving me was the payback. N I still miss him insane .

    For me, it aptly speaks about my long distance relationship with my boyfriend. We miss each other more than words can express, sometimes the intensity of the hurt from wanting him around can be so dreadful, but there is always the question existing, when we finally get together in a year, will all these feelings still be here? Will I still want him around just as much? Will I still love him just as much? Will he want me? Will we be able to make it? I guess only time will tell if this love can stand the true test of actually being together. But I'm very hopeful.

    This song make me sing to a lot of people I love. First my father, I'm so proud what he've done of me. The long distance, the choice that he made to have a better life. The consequence is that I can't see him everyday only 3 time a years and the others days so hard. To feel empty inside. But in the mean time, I got with him, could it feel the same? *

    Found this because frank ocean covered it. Damn, this leaves me speechless everytime I hear it. Shout out to my wife, I miss you down hear. You leaving me and troy behind, I mean, its not ur fault, I just can't believe ur gone now. I blame myself for not gettin to the hospital in time. Not a day goes by that I anger myself for not doing everything right that day. Who knows, maybe you would even still be here with us. I love you and miss you, elizabeth rodriguez amaya. Happy birthday too.

    This song makes me think of this guy that I've known forever. We fell out of friendship for a while and recently fell back into our old feelings. I'm on the other side of the state for school and he's back home. I miss him so much but I feel like when we're together things are different because I can't tell him how I feel because I'm afraid things will change but I know I need to. He's my best friend.

    I was asked to listen to this song by a mutual friend whom was asked to ask to this song. Myself and this person live quite a distance from one another, and due to that and other issues we could never quite make it work. I had cut off contact, then I got this. Not sure what to do. I miss him, I love him, and through it all he still has my heart.

    I miss my boyfriend so much it's painful. But we never broke up. I have no way to contact him all summer whatsoever. We still really love each other. At least I think he still loves me. But there is a giant hole in my heart where he should be. So if you're reading this, charlie, every night I watch the play and try to remember us. You will always be in my heart.

    Its when you miss someone, because its been so had to forget them, and you've hoped that your feelings have could change but it doesn't, insted you carry on missing them. But you could simply be so wapred and lost that your in love with what was once, and when you finally have the person you once missed so much that the feelings that you had are no longer there. It can happen to anyone, its so easy to fall love and then that person take that love away from you that they are they only person you think about.

    My best friend she is 4 years younger than me she is like my little sister and she moved across the country. I love her like a sister and I miss her so bad and when he I around I am in heaven but then she has to leave again and it's the worst feeling in the world. So I think I she stayed around things wouldn't be the same. I would be worried that he would have to leave me again! I love you baby did and I miss you so much come home soon but this time can you stay? And never leave? I miss you baby girl!

    I mean I don't really think I have a meaning for this song. But I can most def relate to this song. Everytime I listen to it I think of the person I'm like love with. And how they don't know how I really feel. And I recently got in to somethings with him and we stopped talking adn I hate it soo much cause nothings the same anymore. But when I listen to this,. It reminds me of him.

    To me the meanig of this song is a love one boy friend or girl friend who you shared good times with and bad times and now there gone and you miss them because you realized how much they mean to you and you think of ways you could have change things you did or said. But the things you are thinking wont come out right. But ur not sure if you get back together would you feel the same way you did when you missed them.

    I feel like the song is expressing the constant desire to be with the one you love. We question love because in a sense love is hard in this world. Many of us have been fooled once or twice before, so it doesn't make sense to feel so deeply for someone other then oursevelves so we hold back because of fear of heart break or failure. But we most learn to love without expections or fear for only then will love flow in freely like the gentle breeze on a warm summer day and calm our longing hearts :)

    It has everything to do with me. I miss the person that I love so much. I everytime I try to express that feeling I just can't spell the words. I makes me feel like home, everything is so right. He reminds me of childhood, of endless love. My feelings for him are so unexplaiable that sometimes I feel like its impossible to say it in words. And since we are not together I miss him every second of the day.

    I miss this special guy. Tried getting over him but it's not easy as getting water through your throat. I want to tell him I love him and need him and miss him still but my pride is the hinderence. The feeling of love, caress and every other of this bond is everything I want and cannot get over. Love the vocals of the song, nobody could have sang it better B. Thanks.

    Can't stop thinking about that 1 person that makes me smile, that I want to be with but every things changed and I don't know what to do. I wanna tell him how I feel but its just not right. His not near and I wanna be with him but it just wont work. Don't know what will happen if we did or didn't come together will it be the same as we are now or not?

    This song has so much meaning for me it is exactly how I feel for someone. I loved him so much and he said he loved me too as a matter of fact he still says he loves me but I guess it's too hard to be who I need him to be so we are not together but? I miss you like everyday wanna be with you but you're away said I miss you missing you insane but if I got with you could it be the same.

    I miss you is much deeper than the cliche of man/woman relationships its also about family and loved ones who have gone and pass and those that are still with us but maybe far away. And the anxiety, anguish and frustration one feels from being away from those they love. Naturally any human being will experience many different emotions when they are away from those they love. No matter the reason rather, distance, time, death, war, imprisonment, etc. Sp.

    Its having a person in your life and it might not even be for a long time but wen they leave its like your world falls apart. You don't know who to become without them because they have become such a big part of who you are. I still wake up in the middle of the night coz I can't sleep without talking to you. A world without you is a world I don't wanna live in because my utopia is wherever you are.

    This song reminds me of a certain guy I genuinely loved. We were inseperable, romantic, and I love him very much. Everything was going great, but then things changed, he changed. Even though he changed, I still loved him. I still miss him now and I would kill to be with him again (i miss you, like everyday). My meaning of this song is that even though they're not with you, it doesn't mean that you can't stop loving them. I know that no one could make me as happy as he made me, but I know that I will always love him.
    Beyonce, you're my idol. You speak the truth, and you are loyal to all your fans, and the people who love you. You are the most phenomenal person ever and you have a voice that brings me to tears. Never change beyonce, ever.

    First love moved away for college and we tried maintaining a long distance relationship, but the distance and just life happening was separating us and hurting me. Even though it was my decision to break up, I still think about him more than breathing and love him like crazy. Lol I even sent him this song when we started talking again. It just says everything you need it to say without you actually having to swallow your pride and say it.

    I still miss him after all this time, he's still there, I still see him, we have the same friends, I still speak to him and chat like we use to when we were best friends, now we're apart and he wont let anyone hurt me as he tells me so often but theres nothing I can do, I don't want him back, I don't want him to be mine again its too much hassle, too much history, and too much hurt. 'i miss you\'.

    You love someone soo much but can never have them. It hurts ur pride to tell them how you feel but you still need to and you don't know why. You wish you could b with them but either you or them have to b somewhere else. It's so simple love, you know you love each other, it's everything! I can't be with the person who amazes me and it kills me everyday.

    This relates to me in a few different situations. I broke up with my ex this past year and I miss what we had, who I was with him. I miss my old self, and it scares me thst I don't know that girl anymore. Second, I had a fling with this guy I fell hard for this past summer and because of college we haven't kept in touch. Except he came over tonight and all the feelings flowed back. I miss him. I can't stand to lose him again and it hurts. But I know that I hate this feeling but I keep going back-why is that?

    I miss a person that broke up with me. I fell in love for the first time and thought he would always be here. He got close maybe too close and ended up pulling the rug up from under my feet. So quickly to leave without trying. It hurts till this day and can't even escape from you in my dreams. You left me, a good women whodid nothing but respect and love you and never hurt you. I'm hard to come across and instead you gave it all up to explore your youth. I'm upset with you but why am I still here missing you.

    That bittersweet feeling you get everytime you see her, that woman who you once thought was yours forever and a day. The smiles you make when you think of her and the sadness that fills your heart knowing you two can never be. Wanting to tell her and claim her back even though it kills your pride yet never having the strength to do so as she might not feel the same anymore. :-(

    I say the meanin of this song is when you just start liking a man. You don't think he could be your every thought or leave his scent on you. You didn't think he would have this effect on you until you catch yourself falling. And you want to call him just to hear his voice but you don't to make a mistake just because you miss him. What if he doesn't feel the same and things get awkward?! But that's just what I got from the song! :)

    There is no one way to discribe it, but all I can say is that it just that this track spoke to me in so many levels. This somng spoke my hreat when I'm away, or nt close to the ones that I love, its the most emotionally, sentimental and deep song I ever heard, it takes you to that place, where you can almost feel your heart cry. My fav line is " it hurt my pride to tell you how i feel, but i still need to, why is that" this is the best ballad ever from the king bee!

    Having to let Go of the most fundamentally right love because of a foolish action that left you no choice, yet knowing that deep love can never be dug out. Constantly there. Haunting every memory, every day. But 'if I got wit you' gave that 3rd chance would it be the same? Holding on to a lost love n missing him so much. That hearing a song like this builds a fist clenched of agony In your heart. To all who have lost, Letting you know your not alone In your pain.

    I miss my ex everyday like the song expresses. I know I can't tell her, I wouldn't want to bring her down she's moved on. It's driving me mad but I can try to move on and act as if I don't care but she's all I want. Our break up was soo pointless but that's life. I love you ladan no matter what you'll always be in my mind.

    It means loving someone with all your heart and soul deeply it don't matter who you are love is simple when you know you know and that feeling is everything. And it crumbles your heart to know that the other person doesn't love you equally. Its a love that's so hard to walk away from cause deep down you know in your heart that you will always love that person.

    I had a teenage sweetheart from 13 to 21 and I'm 24 now & I've moved on. We haven't seen each other in almost 2yrs but as hard as I've tried, my heart, my soul jst won't move on & let go. There isn't a day that goes by without him on my brain, I cnt control it. We cnt make a good life together so we jst cnt be, I've always loved him too much & wether I want to or not the truth is I miss him & always will!

    My best friend recently expressed his love for me. I know I have feelings for him and I do love him but part of me just doesn't love him in the way he wants me to. I told him the truth after a month of dragging him on thinking that maybe I would change my mind. I decided to set him free of a hopes of there being and us even though something in me tells me that was the worst thing I could do. This song has made me realize that I am in fact in love with him but I can't stand to tell him that because he has finally gotten over me. Look who is crushed now. Roles have definitely reversed.

    I'm married, met a guy a month ago on an out of town Seminar. I'm from Texas, he is from Canada. I love him and he feels the same. But I'm married (not very happily) with 2 children. This is so hard. He has such wonderful oppurtunity there, and I can't leave Texas with 2 kids even if I were divorced. Very Complex. So we both are just stuck, and I feel so sick sometimes because I miss him. Never did I think I would ever be in this position. To be with one person and love another. I miss him.

    Sugar-x, I know exactly how your feeling. I have got the same problem as you, I was with my ex for nearly a year an now hes got a new girlfriend, but we still talk every now again, but that hurts me even more to be honest. But I just can't have him out of my life, he told me still cares about me, that's why its so hard for me to move on, but this song explains exactly how I feel! .

    Everyone might be convinced that your over with the person you love, the end of the day. Its still hard to admit that the only person that you can't convince is yourself. Dammn. :(
    Spending precious moments more than a year with you is the best things ever happened in my life. Now your gone and away that leads to break up makes my whole word meaningless. I'm so f*cking miss you girl. Its still you who makes my whole world go round that no one ever does.
    Tnx for d' song btw.

    Wow first time that a song is about my ex but I met him when I was 15 years old got married at 18 was married to him for 5 years, got divorced and I remarried he remarried its been 30 years yes 30 years. His wife died (was my friend) he left me for so we have been chatting but he knows I love my husband, I would never leave him for my ex. But in all honesty I miss him, the words of this song hit my heart hard, I love my ex, I will always love my ex, I just wish my heart would stop crying. I mean I must be crazy, I went on a chat page found a woman for my ex and they are going to be married next Friday. Yep Friday. Why does it hurt so bad? God please bless his marriage. And help me to finely let him go I ain't 15 years old anymore I am 54 years old a wife a mother and a grandmother. But I am in bad health, I wish and I pray if there is such a thing called next life God please put us back together we will get it right this time and it will be forever and a day.

    My sister past away taking the lives of my 2 nephews and niece and when I here this song I don't think relationship, I think the love I had for those kids and her. How I wish I could of saved those kids from such a painful death & her from whatever was eating her up inside. This song breaks my heart every time but, it always gives me a chance to cry and reminisce about the good times, and suddenly it's easier to deal with.
