"Miss You Nights" as written by and David John Townsend....
I've had many times I can tell you,
Times when innocence I'd trade for company.
And children saw me cryin',
I thought I'd had my share of that.
But these Miss You Nights...
Midnight diamonds stud my heaven,
Southward burning like the jewels that line her place.
And the warm winds that embrace me,
Just as surely kissed your face,
Yet these Miss You Nights,
Are the longest.
(How I miss you) How I miss you
I'm not likely to tell,
I'm a man, and the cold daylight
Buys the pride I'd rather sell.

(All my secrets) All my secrets
Are a wasted affair,
You know them well.
Thinkin' of my goin',
How to cut the thread and leave it all behind.
Looking moonward for my compass
I take each day as it arrives.
(Lay down) Lay down all thoughts of your surrender,
It's only me who's killin' time.
(Play down) Play down all dreams once remembered.
It's just the same, this miss-you game.
These Miss You Nights
Are Forever (They're forever....)

    General CommentA beautiful song I loved to listen to, but now I don't listen to songs anymore as songs like this hurt me even more than the affair my Husband had.
    I know that when he listens to these songs they remind him of her.
    I feel so sad that I gave up my life to marriage so young, and that I didn't go and seek someone special myself when I realised he could never love me like he loved her.
    I have never been that girl in his songs, and maybe if I'd done the right thing I could have met someone who thought of me when he listens to beautiful songs.
