Miley Cyrus – I Miss You lyrics

Sha-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la

You used to call me your angel
Said I was sent straight down from Heaven
You'd hold me close in your arms
I loved the way you felt so strong
I never wanted you to leave
I wanted you to stay here holding me

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once in a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

You used to call me your dreamer
And now I'm livin' out my dream
Oh, how I wish you could see
Everything that's happening for me
I'm thinking back on the past
It's true that time is flying by too fast

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once in a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

I know you're in a better place, (yeah)
But I wish that I could see your face (oh)
I know you are where you need to be
Even though it's not here with me

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once in a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once in a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go, and I need you to know
I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

    This song is very touching. I love this song. Miley is trying to show us that it's always okay to cry. My grandmother passed away when I was 6 and it was very sad. I never knew this song yet.(i don't even think she even made the song yet) now that I am kinda grown up alittle I now want to try to make at her funeral this song play on the slideshow. But miley is very sweet and she has feelings! Now I know she's made mistakes in her life. Haven't we? Miley doesn't really wanna be a celebrity because people always have to make rumors and surround her all the time. I don't blame her! But she does know what it's like to lose someone special in your life! God bless you miley and your grandpa. Miley, this is for you, remember he is a better place. God wanted him, and you have to respect that. But remember he's watching over you. So don't feel like he won't be able to see your celebrity life. He would have been so proud of you! Go miley!

    This song is so sweet no matter what miley is like (even though shes awesome) (some people think shes not) but it don't matter this song was written from her heart and it has touched mine one of my friends passed away and this song along with "Bye Bye" by Mariah Carey was played at his memorial. I just wanted to say that this ong is the best thing shes ever written!

    This song is heartwarming. It really gets you thinking. Cause I remember when I lost my grandpapa it was sad. When I listen to this song I start to remember how much he loved me. And when I listen to this song I know she made that song for me!. Cause I miss him I miss his smile and I still shed a tear every once and a while. Thank you so much miley.

    This song opens my heart. It remindes me of my grandmother. She meant and was the whole world to me(except my parents of course).
    It killed me when I heard she was gone, I cried for a week. But this song shows me that the lord wanted her to be with him and I have to exceptthat. But I listen to this song and here comes the water works. I am Going to put this song on my ipod shuffle.

    I love this song! I can relate to it because I have lost someone in the past year but you can't cry all the time because you want what is best for that person and if they were suffering you should be happy they are in a better place. You just have to remember in your heart they are always right beside you, watching over you, they are with you every step in the way. They may be far in distance, but they are always close at heart. If you are dealing with the pain of losing someone, just remember they are always with you. R.I.P tyler.

    A person that is really special to you but now they aren't with you anymore but you still tresure the moment that you had with that person and you wounld do anything to take them but you would do anything in your power to the moments that you had with that person back like people say don't take anyone for granent because at any moment that person could be gone and there would be no way to get them back.

    I remember this sonqq so much.! My grandpa passed away april 22, 2012 and I sang this at his funeral. This song makes me cry every time I here it because it brings back memories and it so sad:,(. And when I'm in the most pain and I feel like crying all I need to do is listen to this wonderful song and it lets all my feelings out. This song helps so much even though it makes me cryy.

    I ove thsi song sooo much is ing it differantly though. I sing it for my favourite pony of all time who past away last year. It was also very unexpected for me. He was old and had been reteird from riding a feew months back but he still looked healthy enoough. I told him I would be back on Thursday and would see him then. I got to the stable and was told he had been put down. It took all my will power to stop my self from crying but I eventually started when I was grooming my pony. I never said goodbye. I never told him how much he meant to me. I will allways regret that. I litterally just burst into tears again as I did half way through singing it. I ll never forget you Skittles! I love you so much!

    I love this song! I love it because my papaw just died in march and it has been really hard to bare the pain. Every time I hear this song I think of hem. He was my every thing and then out of no where he is gone. Every time I hear this song I have to cry. I was at a park with my friends and it can on and I started to cry out of no where. I feel for every one who loses anyone in there life cause its really hard. So alll my love to anyone and every one in that pain of losing someone.

    I totally love this song! Every time I hear it, I cry because it reminds me of my big sister, diana who died last year of cancer. But it's an awesome song! Miley wrote this song because her grandpa died A couple years ago and she really luvs him and misses him! I really miss my big sister just like miley misses her grandpa and I hope that my sister and her grandpa are both happy and safe in heaven! Love you diana!

    "I Miss You" Is such a sad song. At one of her concerts, I could almost see her cry! I feel sooo bad for Miley. I am soo sad that her Grandpa passed! ='(Poor Miley! But anyways I think it means that. Even tho someone passes away or moves (Moving is not what the song is about tho! =)) Kno matter what. They are still with you in your heart! "GO MILEY!" =)

    My Great-Grandmother died last year on December 22, 2009. 3 days before christmas! We had to go across the country to go to her funeral. When I listen to this song it reminds me of all the people I live far away from and the people who recently passed away. It makes me want 2 cry. This song inspires Miley and it reminds everyone that she doesn't have a perfect life, even if shes famous. God bless America and hope all our relatives up in heaven are okay!
