"I'm Not Missing You" as written by Frankie Storm, Belewa Muhammad, Terence Abney, Keir Gist, Stacie Orrico and Esteban Crandle....
Oh, Oh
I'm not missing you

Been through just about everything that I could go through
When it comes to relationships
Don't know what I was missing or why I ain't listen
When I told myself that was it
Now here I go, hurt again
Cause of my curiosity
Now that it's over
What else could it be, he just had to cheat

I made a promise never to settle
Why didn't I keep it'
Cause I hated the heartbreak
Crying and cheating, the fooling around

(CHORUS)

(But) I'm not missing you
I'm not going through the motions
Waiting and hoping you call me
I'm not missing you
You might have had me open
But I must be going because
I got life to do
I know I'm usually hanging on
I used to hate to see you gone
But this time it's different
I don't even feel the distance
I'm not missing
I'm not missing you

It's a shame in a way cause
I feel that I may not ever find the right one for me
Did I leave him, is he right in front of my face oh
Will my true love ever be'
Why would I go on a search again
When I know what the end will be
What good is love when it keeps on hurting me'

I made a promise never to settle
Why didn't I keep it?
Cause I hated the heartbreak
Crying and cheating, the fooling around

(Chorus x 2)

(But) I'm not missing you
I'm not going through the motions
Waiting and hoping you call me
I'm not missing you
You might have had me open
But I must be going because
I got life to do
I know I'm usually hanging on
I used to hate to see you gone
But this time it's different
I don't even feel the distance
I'm not missing
I'm not missing you

No I can't be with you
Cause I'm scared felt like I was falling when you left me
I can't keep going through life
Unaware of what I missed
And the person I could be
Love's good when it's right
And when it's left in your memory
All the times I let you down
I guess love will be nice for someone else's life

(Chorus)

(But) I'm not missing you
I'm not going through the motions
Waiting and hoping you call me
I'm not missing you
You might have had me open
But I must be going because
I got life to do
I know I'm usually hanging on
I used to hate to see you gone (I used to hate it)
Oh different, oh feel the distance
I'm not missing
I'm not missing you

I'm not going through the motions
Waiting and hoping you call me (knockin' at my door)
You might have had me open
But I must be going because (it's the best day of my life)
I know I'm usually hanging on
I used to hate to see you gone
Oh different, feel the distance
I'm not missing
I'm not missing you I'm not missing you (oh baby)
I'm not missing you
I'm so over you
It ain't even a problem

    General Commenti think it's just about how she was always scared of relationships and the one time she let herself love someone he hurt her? I don't think the song is generally about this as it's quite upbeat, but to me it seems like she's trying to persuade herself that she doesn't miss him, when in fact she does?

    That's just the feeling i get from listening to it, & i guess that's how i relate it to my life. I say i don't miss him, and i'm over him, but deep down i know i do miss him, alot.

    General CommentI agree. First, it does make you want to sing along! Second, it IS upbeat, which is sort of weird, because she's saying how she got hurt and everything. But it's nice, like she's moved on and she doesn't care anymore. Or maybe like wants to tell herself she doesn't care anymore?
    Either way, I really like this song. It's been stuck in my head for ages, and I can think back to when I thought I'd never go on without this guy, and now I know I'm better off and not missing him and I can sing it along with Stacie :D
    I just think that it's sad that she's saying "I guess love will be nice for someone else's life," like it's something that she's pretty much given up on for good.

    General Commenti love this song and it's getting my first comment!

    i think this sing is about a girl who had a boyfriend that dumped her and he probably went to all his friends saying that she wants him back etc. and she's just like shut up freak so points to stacie for that because that happened to me .....kinda :S

    it's kinda scary because every single stacie releases it exactly what's on ly mind when she relases it anyway stacie is awesum so yeah

    General CommentIt's simple... she's not missing him. To me, this song is about a person who was hung up on a guy who treated her like crap and left her high and dry. In the past she still hung on waiting to hear from him, waiting for the one day he'd come back, but she was just afraid to move on. And now that she has, she realizes that she's giving up nothing, even if moving on is scary, it's better then what she had.

    General Commentthis song is so addicting and up beat! it kinda does sound like she's trying to convice herself that she doesn't miss him, but it's good that she's realizing you can't stay hung up on something (some idiot) for too long. =]
