"Miss You" as written by and Zach Heiligman Mark Foster....
Forget your problems
Lay down and start up
Innocence of what you are
Is what I want
I bring my colors
Drip down and drained out
Tried a million things
But my hearts been shy
Well I hope you try and find me
I'm most tired of pacing
And I know what you want to say
So say it
Forget the words speak it just want to rearrange
So I just say it

Oh
I really miss you
Miss you
Say
Smile at the chance just to see you again
I really miss you miss you say
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Heat stroke this like
Things I think are right
I never knew I could go as far as this
I took your problem greasly forgot him
I know who I had been before I slipped
Oh I want to change it
I will live a life that makes you smile
When I'm done here in long long
Fever is peaking just want to see your face
Oh whatcha say, whatcha say?

Oh yeah
I really
Miss you
Miss you
Say
Smile at the chance to just see you again
I really miss you miss you say
So look at me now
Before I walk away
You might just miss me miss me
One day
Yeah yeah yeah

    Lyric CorrectionLyrics from the album pamphlet:

    Forget your problems
    Lay it down, they start up
    The innocence of what you are is what I want
    I've ran my colors dripped down and drained out
    Tried a million things, but my heart's been shot

    I hope you try to find me, I'm all spun and pacing
    I know what you want to say here, so say it
    Forget the words I'm speaking
    Just want to rearrange so I'll just say it

    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Smile at the chance just to see you again

    Heat stroke, death's like
    The wrong things that I think are right
    I never knew that I could go as far as this
    I took a problem recently forgotten
    I know who I had been before I slipped
    Oh, I want to change it
    I will live a life that makes you smile when I'm done here and long gone
    Feverish and peaking, just want to see your face
    What you say, what you say?

    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Smile at the chance just to see you again
    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Just look at me now before I walk away
    You just might miss me, or miss me one day

    General CommentI fucking love this song, the drums are so great. And I know everyone is getting all deep into the analysis but I think it's just really about someone who is missing someone else. Not drugs or god or suicide.

    Lyric CorrectionFrom the lyrics book:

    Forget your problems
    Lay it down, they start up
    The innocence of what you are is what I want
    I’ve ran my colors dripped down and drained out
    Tried a million things, but my hearts been shot

    I hope you try to find me, I’m all spun and pacing
    I know what you want to say here, so say it
    Forget the words I’m speaking
    Just want to rearrange so I’ll just say it

    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Smile at the chance just to see you again
    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Smile at the chance just to see you again

    Heat stroke, death’s like
    The wrong things that I think are right
    I never knew that I could go as far as this
    I took a problem recently forgotten
    I know who I had been before I slipped
    Oh, I want to change it
    I will live a life that makes you smile when I'm done here and long gone
    Feverish and peaking, just want to see your face
    What you say, what you say?

    I really miss you I miss you I said
    Smile at the chance just to see you again
    I really miss you I miss you said
    Just look at me now before I walk away
    You just might miss me, or miss me one day

    General CommentI think it's about a a dying person (maybe suicidal) that's wanting/waiting to see someone.

    My InterpretationPretty certain it's about a guy who purposefully overdosed on drugs to kill himself. He's reflecting on a past love as the drugs kick in:

    "Lay it down, they start up"
    "I'm all spun and pacing"
    "I never knew that I could go as far as this"
    "Feverish and peaking, just want to see your face"

    General Comment"I will live a life that makes you smile when I'm done here and long gone."

    This person's touched bottom. A realization occurs and he's ready for a change. He's willing to do whatever it takes to make that one person smile for him again.

    Once again, another beautiful song by Foster the People.

    General CommentI think its a love song I agree with @charmedone89 too. He's reached the lowest he could and now he realizes that its finally a time for changed. That in order to get her back that he's going to have to go back to how he was when he met her. And He'll do anything to see her again. Hell fix himself for her and you never know, one day she just might miss him and come back and there he'll be ready for her.

    Song Meaningscratch that...
    I think this song is about what ever you are missing at the time. Its not about one particular thing. I think Mark Foster made the song like this because he knew people would be able to make there own meaning to it as I think he does in every song.

    General CommentThink about a person you have not seen in a long time. A person you used to know who had unwavering innocence. Look through your old family photos and at the faces staring back at you. Do you see your face in these photos? Where did that person go? They grew up and they changed.

    I think he misses the person he once was. He has lost his true colors growing up, and he knows it. Reflecting on old perspectives.
