"Miss You" as written by Mariah Carey, Terry M. Etlinger, Linda Laurie, Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Michael Paul Cox and Jason Phillips....
All, all it's not alright
Your role it played through time
Come and rescue me
You're needed here at home

And your space, a moment in time
A hand to hold a hand I tried
Who was it called to you?
Who called?
Your story's alive with hellos and goodbyes
Bright lights, first kiss and drunken nights
How I miss you

I miss you now and
Hey, I can't wait another day
And hey, that crooked smile upon your face
Oh they'll never get old
All the stories you told
From the beach to the ring
To the songs of your soul
How I miss you

And the rain
Falling cold outside
Covered me the day you died
You could have waited one more day
I should have called
I dream of your life, the war and the fight
The music you played, the love for your wife
And I miss you

I miss you now and
Hey, I can't wait another day
And hey, that crooked smile upon your face
Oh they'll never get old
All the stories you told
From the beach to the ring
To the songs of your soul
How I miss you

And I miss you
I miss you now and hey

And I'm mad at the age
That stole you away
By surviving that beach
You gave me my stay
And I understand by this that I am
All that you were was changed by that sand
But I miss you

I miss you now and
Hey, I can't wait another day
And hey, that crooked smile upon your face
Oh they'll never get old
All the stories you told
From the beach to the ring
To the songs of your soul
How I miss you

How I miss you

    General CommentIt could be about a father or grandfather who died;

    "And I'm mad at the age that stole you away"
    "They'll never get old, all the stories you told"
    "And the rain falling cold outside, covered me the day you died"

    It reminds me of my grandfather, anyway. At any rate, it's a beautiful song and my favorite from Into The Sun.

    General CommentI think it's about his father;

    "The music you played, the love for your wife"

    General CommentJust came from seeing them in concert. The song is about Kevin Martins father who died 4 years ago. He was WWII veteran who stormed the beaches of Normandy.
