Wish I'd told her how I felt, then maybe she'd be here right now, but
instead...

I pretended I'm glad you went away
These four walls closing more everyday
And I'm dyin' inside
And nobody knows it but me

Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
And I'm cryin' inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didn't I say, the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just a tumblin' down
I can say it so clearly, but you're nowhere around

The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missin' you
And nobody know it but me

I carry a smile when I'm broken in two
And I'm nobody without someone like you
I'm tremblin' inside
And nobody knows it but me

I lie awake it's a quarter past three
I'm screamin' at night if I thought you'd hear me
Yeah, my heart is callin' you
And nobody knows it but me

How blue can I get, you could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart

A million words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now you know I'll be lovin' you still

The nights are lonely the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missin' you
And nobody knows it but me

Yeah, Ohh, uhh, whoa, omom,
Nobody, nobody, but me.....

Tomorrow morning I'm hittin' the dusty road
Gonna find you where ever, ever you might go
And I'm gonna hold my heart
And hope you come back to me

Yeah, sad when the nights are lonely...

The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missin' you
And nobody knows it but me...

    General CommentThis song is awesome there is not one that that I do not like about it, I love it. Good song, sad but that makes it good too. If I had to pick one part out of the song I like most well that would be hard but I'd pick....

    "I pretended I'm glad you went away
    These four walls closing more everyday"

    And

    "I carry a smile when I'm broken in two
    And I'm nobody without someone like you"

    And

    "How blue can I get, you could ask my heart
    But like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart"

    And

    "Tomorrow morning I'm hittin' the dusty road
    Gonna find you where ever, ever you might go"

    Ok the whole darn song! :)

    General Commentthis could be my life right here. i let someone go and never showed how much i missed her, even though it was killing me inside every day. i'm still grieving over losing the best thing that's ever happened to me.

    General Commentthis song just described my whole life! i liked someone so much and i couldn't tell her how much I liked her because it was too late. and now here i am barricading my feelings within myself knowing i let the chance slip away.

    =( this song is too depressing.

    Song Meaning*Supposedly* - I stress the supposedly - this song was actually not about a love lost, though it's obvious why it's interpreted that way. It was about a battle with cancer. Song is actually a lot more depressing in that light.

    Anyway, the fact remains that the song is really hard to listen to regardless of its meaning, it's always easy to interpret this more literally and remember old wounds.

    My OpinionThis song came out in January of '96. I was 14. The literal meaning of this song is pretty obvious, but the emotional meaning for many people cannot be described. For me, it represents a time when life was a bit simpler.
