"I Never Told You" as written by Jason Reeves, Kara Diaguardi and Colbie Caillat....
I miss those blue eyes
How you kiss me at night
I miss the way we sleep

Like there's no sunrise
Like the taste of your smile
I miss the way we breathe

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through
I miss everything about you
Without you, oh

I see your blue eyes
Every time I close mine
You make it hard to see
Where I belong to
When I'm not around you
It's like I'm not with me

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you (still you're gone)
Can't believe that I still want you (loving you I should have never walked away)
And after all the things we've been through (I know it's never going to come again)
I miss everything about you
Without you

But I never told you
What I should have said
No, I never told you
I just held it in

And now,
I miss everything about you (still you're gone)
Can't believe that I still want you (loving you I should have never walked away)
And after all the things we've been through (I know it's never going to come again)
I miss everything about you
Without you
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

    General CommentAbout an ex she had and she's missing him, pretty simple. We've all had that one person who meant more than anything to us and they got away. In her situation, she walked away from him and now she's regretting her decision about leaving him. She realizes that she misses him so much and loved him to the point where she doesn't even know who she is anymore. Love always does that, and it sucks when you realize how much someone meant after they are gone from your life.

    I miss your blue eyes, Tori :(

    General Comment"i see your blue eyes everytime i close mine"
    i lovelovelove that line<3

    this song is about a girl who ended her relationship with someone and then realized it was a big mistake. she never really told him exactly how she felt about him, and now she's regreting it. she misses him so much that she doesn't even know how to function without him.
    that's what i get from the song anyway

    Colbie's album Breakthrough is AMAZING<3

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who left her boyfriend and regrets doing so because the memories they had once shared keep flashing and are etched in her mind. She had never told him how she really, really felt towards him and feels extremely remorseful, she just held the three words "I Love You" back in.

    I'm guessing now the guy has found a special someone, that's why the heartbroken lady feels upset.

    To everyone : Face up to your feelings before it's too late.

    General CommentWell, everyone else pretty much covered what this song's about. I just wanted to say how great it is! It's cowritten by Kara Dioguardi, so can it possibly be bad? She is lyrically genious.

    General CommentThis is overall about her still missing him, and regretting the fact that she walked away from the relationship, and regretting the fact that she didn't tell him that she loves him.
    "but i never told you,
    what i should have said,
    no i never told you,
    i just held it in."
    She regrets not telling him that she loves him..just like my past experiences:/

    General CommentI don't think it's about an ex per say. I think it's about someone she was really close to dating. Like they were friends before and now in the talking stage but something went wrong. Like she never outright admitted that she wanted to be with him. Hence the pre-chorus

    But I never told you
    What I should have said
    No I never told you
    I just held it in

    Maybe she had commitment issues and now that he's decided to move on, is when she realized her mistake.

    Song MeaningI could have sworn I heard her referring to a female...maybe I am just tired and need to sleep. It could be a family member or she may have a different sexual preference?
