"You Can't Be Missed If You Never Go Away" as written by David Katz, Gabe Saporta and Sam Hollander....
I was buried alive
I came back to haunt you
Are you dying to believe
I can't go on without you?

All we are
Is too fast for love.

We're too young
I hate to love you.
The night's gone
And you're gone too.
But you can't be missed
If you never go away

It's the end of a broken heart
I went on without you
I was lost from the start
I did what I had to.

You don't know what I see
You can't see that I've been
Drowning without you.
And I don't know where you've been
But I can wash your sins away.

All we are
Is nothing at all

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song my first thought was that it was a breakup, or at least a 'let's-take-a-break' song. It doesn't sound like a successfully functioning relationship... almost as if the singer hates his girlfriend.
    I think it's saying 'Leave me alone for awhile, we can try again when we've both had a chance to mature'. He wants space, judging from the song title itself, and the lyrics 'Are you dying to believe
    I can't go on without you?' (mocking her and her belief that he is so consumed with her), 'All we are
    is too fast for love', and 'We're too young
    I hate to love you'.
    That's just my interpretation, anyway.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of Cobra Starship's. ITS INCREDIBLE.
    'All we are
    Is too fast for love'
    He got involved too quickly with her, and to me it sounds like she's died, and he's denying that she's gone, and he's talking to her in the sky.
    'And your gone too'
    He misses her so much.

    General CommentI think this is how he gave up the girl of his dreams that loved him too to persue his music career and now they are both trying to move on but he realizes what he has done and is doing so hes trying to get her back.

    I love this song, like every other on this album
    i especially love the line "I don't know where you've been, but i can wash your sins away."

    General Commenti agree with emilidaa, except i think that they broke up previously, and she wants to try it again. he's having his doubts, but cant resist. i.e "i hate to love you" but he misses her so much.

    this song is amazing, no matter what it means.

    General CommentThe night's gone
    and you're gone too.

    is that seriously what they're saying? It doesn't really sound like it to me. Most sites say "The night sky hangs above you" but there's no way that's it.
