"I Miss You" as written by Bjork Gudmundsdottir and Howard Simon Bernstein....
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
So special
But it hasn't happened yet
You are gorgeous
But I haven't met you yet
I remember
But it hasn't happened yet

And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I will meet you

I was peaking
But it hasn't happened yet
I haven't been given
My best souvenir
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
I know your habits
But wouldn't recognize you yet

And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I will meet you

I'm so impatient
I can't stand the wait
When will I get my cuddle?
Who are you?

I know by now that you'll arrive
By the time I stop waiting

I miss you

    General Commenti love listening to bjork, i love this song, and it brings back wonderful memories. i think the song is pretty easy to disect, meaning-wise. I like the simplicity of the lyrics, and that it is hard to get a point across simply, and understandable at times. i like to write, and sometimes i struggle with simplifying my thoughts. so, good job, bjork.

    General CommentBjork patiently awaits the love she dreams of meeting. She has an intricate understanding of who this person will be, even knowing what their habits will be. But to Bjork it is more than a dream, it is more like a destined future. The seeming reality of this destiny then makes Bjork impatient, because the picture is so clear. She wonders why it has yet to become reality, but knows that she really isn't ready for it yet. It is a beautiful and hopeful song ... there is a love for us all - all we have to do is envision it and wait ...

    General CommentHey,
    So i joined this site just so I could write this. I was just taking a study break and this song came on my ipod shuffle. I've recently met this wonderful guy who's falling in love me and so happy atm, so he says. I know he's there, I think he's awesome too, but I can't let mysof enjoy it, I'm so scared of fallin in love again adn it all going wrong, i am so not ready to have some life screw-up again right now.
    But it's like this- i was listening to the lyrics here, it's like, I miss him, he's gorgeous, i remember all the amazing times we have together when I do let myguard down very recently...but I can't let myself feel it and own it, I can't feel happiness from it and hold on to it. so it's as if i am waiting to feel it, i miss the fact it's there but I'm NOT.

    By the time I stop waiting to 'give myself permission' to fall in love and just decide to do this, yeah, he will 'arrive'.

    Is this giving anyone a headache or does anyone else get this?
    Aas you can tell, i'm pretty confused.
    Bjork as usual, makes things leap up for me.

    I really hope you guys out there are happy and not holding yourselves back from living.
    Let's stop this damn waiting game and Arrive aLIVE!

    General CommentI personally relate to this song...knowing that there is someone out there perfect for you, missing them even though you've never met them.

    General CommentThese song lyric's are are totally fucking dope (in a good way). They are very to the point and honest, which is one of my favorite things about Bjork lyrics. She is in love with a hypothetical person that she knows in her heart exists, she just hasn't met yet. I can relate to this song because I had the same with my fiance before I even met him. I knew all of his little habits and liabilities that I thought were silly delusions, but I felt were true and realistic in my heart. I met my fiance and I new he was the one for me and now we are getting married and I (who is from the USA) am moving to Berlin, GErmany where he lives! Dreams can come true and this song will be our wedding song.

    General CommentI love this song, it always cheers me up.
    Its about waiting for the love of your life, who you haven't met yet, and you wait so long that you actually miss him.

    General CommentThis has a great beat and concept. I wonder what my other half is like.
    The Ren & Stimpy-stile video ranks among her strangest.
