"I Miss You" as written by Will Hunt and Shane Barnard....
Put down your paper plate
Come to the table made
Deep blue china
Found on the table by the wine
So fine

It brings out flavor
Like You bring out color in life

Oh, I miss you so
The feel of forever
Oh, that taste I know
It hurts to remember
Unfortunately high
Ironically dissatisfied
I miss You
I miss You

Oh, I miss you so
The feel of forever
Oh, that taste I know
It hurts to remember

I had a fleeting thought this morning
And I mentioned you today
It breaks my heart just to know You in part
And not to be with You where You are

    General CommentWOW. amazing song. its amazing that they did this acoustic. you should check this song out.

    to me it could relate to when Jesus was crucified, and the disciples were mourning his death. if you understand scripture, this is not such an alien idea to you. when they sing, "unfortunately high, ironically dissatisfied" i think this can be seen two ways, 1) as God, high in the sky, displeased with what the world is doing to themselves due to our free choice... and 2) Jesus hanging on the cross in his final minutes of life... he is high up, unable to be reached by spectators, he is not mad, rather he feels sorrow for all who have not followed him.

    then, "it breaks my heart just to know You in part" is alot like the relationship we have with God, where we can only know part of him, the part we pray to, because we cannot know Him fully. it also relates to the live Jesus, 'part' divine and 'part' human, while also relating to Jesus, because when he was raised from the dead, a 'part' of his soul came to visit the disciples and greet them, while his other 'part' was i guess you could say in heaven.

    i love this song.

    General CommentI never even thought about phasen's interpretation. Awesome as well. This song is amazing, one of those you just sing at the top of your lungs. I got to see them in concert and them playing this song just gave me chills.
    To me, it's about falling away from God, in gerenal. The "it breaks my heart just to know You in part" talks about how, in my case, I've been going to church all my life. I've been a Christian for years, but lately, I haven't really been following Him. It's hurting me to know only part of Him because I know I can known Him better if I just spent time with him. I miss God because I haven't made the effort to have a relationship anymore.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song, i hear God calling out to me, his child, telling me he misses me. It gives me the chills just about every time i hear it because it just reminds me how my Lord is madly in love with me. When he says "Ironically dissatisfied" i see that as God, though the creator of the universe, still can be dissatisfied in just a mediocre relationship with me. He wants it all from me but i still only give him part of me to know.
    Another way i have thought about this song is actually quite chilling. Next time you listen to it, imagine that it is Jesus Christ singing to one of his loved ones that have died without giving their lives to him. Imagine he is singing to a soul he has lost to an eternity away from him....

    My Interpretationi tend to think of this song as a lamentation of those times when we just refuse to spend time with God (prayer, reading His Word, etc.). i also think it goes back in forth in perspective because the first verse sounds like Jesus telling us not to settle for earthly pleasures, but most of the song, including the chorus and bridge, sounds like a person crying out for the joy and eternal perspective that come with fellowship with God.

    General CommentI think all those answers sound really theological but I think the song is about a person who from time to time mourns the death of a close friend or family member. The song can be Christian and not speak specifically about Christ. The song regardless has the hope of new life that only the death and resurrection of Jesus can provide. I feel like I only "know my dad in part" because he is gone. There's so much I wished I would have asked of him to know him better.
