Colbie Caillat – I Never Told You lyrics

I miss those blue eyes
How you kiss me at night
I miss the way we sleep

Like there's no sunrise
Like the taste of your smile
I miss the way we breathe

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

I see your blue eyes
Everytime I close mine
You make it hard to see
Where I belong to
When I'm not around you
It's like I'm alone with me

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

    This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. We had always been interested in each other and this summer we finally told eachother how we felt. But he cheated on me while we dated, and then broke up with me for no good reason at all. We didn't talk for the longest time and then at the end of summer we finally saw eachother angain and he regretted everything he had done and apologized and I forgave him. And it was worse because we don't live in the same town, I just summer where he lives and that is the only time we see eachother. So he told me he still has feelings for me and always had and wished that he hadnt have messed up, but I just hear about him flirting with all of these other girls at his school from my friends. But I know that when we are together we share something special and we both feel the same way. And everyone keeps telling me to forget about him but I just can't. So go with your heart and tell him how you feel, don't hold it in. Except he has brown eyes, but this song just makes everything better so thank you colbie!

    It reminds me of my ex. He was such a nice guy and I feel so stupid for breaking up with him and now seeing him with other girls hurts me so much, even just seeing him. After I've dated other guys I've still liked him and I can't see why. It felt like closure when he told me he was seeing someone else, but then I saw them together and it hurt again and what's bad is, he's moved. He won't go to a different school until the end of this year, and my friend likes him too. I really don't wanna hurt her and I'm really gonna miss him.

    This song reminds me of only one man I loved. Hes d only one who I really loved but then I never told him what I really feel and I instead go to another place to forget him. Now, he has his own family. But then I still loved him and I regret on leaving him without saying a word. I've been wishing for the tym to rewind. But I'm happy for him. And for him, i'll remain Single forever.

    I've been dating this amazing guy for two months, We've been friends longer then that. We're real close. We argue alot but we always make right back up and be all sweet and cute again. I like everything about him, when I'm with him I feel like I'm floating on air. He's my baby, my bestfriend. The problem is even though we care about each other, I still feel like I like him way more. Which makes me teriffed to tell him I love him. Like he has made me completly fall for him. But I don't wanna tell him cause I don't wanna ruin what we have if he doesn't love me back. I'd be crushed. This song means everything we are going through well me anyways. I just need some kinda invice please help://

    I have a strong meaning to this song. My -now- ex-boyfriend broke up with me because of the distance. He then had a girlfriend at the end of the month he broke up with me on. He was my longest relationship. I miss him sooo much. I just wish one day that he would come back. I mean we still talk and he are semi friends but I want him back to be my boyfriend. Everything I do makes me think of him. I truely miss everything about him.

    Recently my close friend and ex boyfriend died in a house fire and this song reminds me of him. I mostly regret that I never told him how I really felt about him and that I didn't get the ham egg to tell him goodbye. You never want to have to say goodbye to the people that mean the most to you but then when you can't you regret it more than anything. I used to call his phone just to hear his voice but it's not there anymore. Everyone talking about him all the time just makes it hurt even worst and makes it even more real when I don't want it to be. He meant everything to me and I just sat there and watched him be with other people and didn't say a word. I also never told him I loved him so I text his phone "I love you" everyday. I miss him so much. If you truly love someone tell them before it's too late. I was stupid and ended up not having the chance to.

    Okay I like this girl a lot, I know I've wronged you and I'm sooo sorry! I guess I didn't tell her how much she meant to me enough, How I miss everything about her now, I miss talking to her for how many hours yet not being boring, and I miss her not being around, We had always been interested in each other but not exactly might be, But I know that when we are together we share something special and we both feel the same way, I can't win her back see I miss her so much I don't know what's best thing to do now I wanted to see her and talk to her but I thinks it’s too late cause’ she seeing someone else though it hurts cause this is the second time that I had my heart broken, I don't tell her what I really feel I just disregard, I missed her when I don't have her already, We've been friends longer then that. We're real close yet. We argue a lot but we always make right back up and be all sweet and cute again. I like everything about her, she’s my baby, The problem is even though we care about each other we couldn’t knew I still feel like I like her way more. Which makes me terrified to tell her I love her, But I don't wanna tell her cause’ I don't wanna ruin what we have if he doesn't love me back. I'd be crushed. I miss her sooo much and everything I do makes me think of her and I'm only me when I'm with her I have feelings for her and I haven't told her how I felt yet but one day I hope eventually, and the interesting is I saw her few days after time last Dec 29, I saw her and she looked the same, my heart melt since took down my walls, and made me fell in love once again. And in our relationship there were ups and downs, But it's just that you make me like sooo nervous.

    I have been though this and just to say it hurts bad it is no fun to lost someone you love I ever better I never told him how much I love him and now I don't see him cause when we broke up I didn't say sorry and that I loved him now I reget it.
    The meaning of this is that someone lost who they love and she misses a lot about him and when you love someone don't keep it to yourself tell someone.

    I think that she loved him but she regrets not telling him how she really felt an then it was to late by then and she thinks if she wuda told him how she really felt theyd b together and she wudnt just have to think about him every day an night maybe theyd actualy be together if she wuda just told em how she felt but since she didn't hes only a memory.

    I think this meaning means how someone lost someone and misses them dearly I can relate to this so much because I lost a person that I loved dearly and now everyday I see the love of my life go away from me I count every day that I miss him. I love him but to truly love someone you must let them go. He's all happy and well I'm still grieving he broke up with me because of the trouble my friends caused with him. And I still miss him everyday after all we have been through and everday I see him change differently in front of other people it makes me want to cry. I honestly love it when he smiles so I guess this way if he's happy then I'm happy that he's happy.

    *Sigh* beautiful. Poor girl has regrets. We all do. About what should've been said. We all think that certain words could've changed an entire moment forever. But guys, understand that everything has a reason, no matter how tough things are that get thrown at us. If it has zero chances of being patched up and fixed, or it just doesn't feel right anymore, it's probably for the best, with reason.

    This song means more to me then any song I have ever listened to. My ex-boyfriend is still the only one I want to be with. He was my first real true love. We were together 6 years and finally decided we should see other people. Even after we've been broken up for almost a year, I still miss him. I miss how close me and him had become over the years. We were best friends in middle and high school. Freshman year we got together. We'd spend every minute of every day together. I guess I didn't tell him how much he meant to me enough. When we broke up, he was always so awful to me. I couldn't take it anymore so I left him. I regret it so much. I was head over heels in love with him. Things happen for a reason I guess. /:

    I've loved a man for 33 years; since I was 17. We've both moved on and got married and had children, but we still have feelings for each other. He told me recently that if I had told him back then how I really felt, things would have worked out differently. The moral: If you love someone, tell him! I will never love another. I only hope someday we can be together someday.

    Ok. I don't have anyone to talk to so I need to get stuff off of my chest. Ok I like this boy a lot. And when I see him flirt with other girls in front of me it like breaks my heart. I know I've wronged you and I'm sooo sorry. I like you A lot. I'm putting my heart on the line right now. I think that I should tell you this in person. But it's just that you make me like sooo nervous.

    I love this song. I'm a freshman and I like a junior. He's like best friends with my best friends boyfriend and well me and the junior like each other but can't find the way to say it to each other. It's sooo cute when we're in the hall and he waves at me. But sometimes I feel like rebound girl because him and his ex girl friend just recently broke up and like 3 weeks ago he asked out my bff's other bff and she rejected him so I really feel like rebound girl and he flirts with alot of girls but he hasn't for a flirted with other girls for awhile. And my friend is like "Well if he flirted with other girls when a had a girl friend then what type of boy friend is he?" Well I guess we'll see Monday when we get to school. Which me luck. I'll need it. Gypsyoutkast obviously your girl friend was a complete idiot. And sophiabossert I which you luck.

    The truth about this song is that, no matter how hard I try to forget this person that had made my heart melt since the beginning of our relationship, took down my walls, and made me fell in love once again. And in our relationship there were ups and downs, but the ups did not measure with the down times. He would be so mean and cruel at times I can't handles it. I would take him back. But its never the same because the same actions by him are repetitive. People just don't learn. I sit here alone sometimes and listen to this song, it brings back the good memories and I would cry because regardless of how he made me feel in the end, I found love again through him at one point. And that was a feeling I thought I would never feel again because it hurts so much when the heart is left for another to mistreat. It was magical when it lasted.
