"Miss You Love" as written by and Johns....
Millionaire say
Got a big shot deal
And thrown it all away but
But I'm not too sure
How I'm supposed to feel
Or what I'm supposed to say
But I'm not, not sure,
Not too sure how it feels
To handle every day
And I miss you love

Make room for the prey
'Cause I'm coming in
With what I wanna say but
It's gonna hurt
And I love the pain
A breeding ground for hate but

I'm not, not sure
Not too sure how it feels
To handle everyday
Like the one that just past
In the crowds of all the people

Remember today
I've no respect for you
And I miss you love
And I miss you love

I love the way you love
But I hate the way
I'm supposed to love you back and

It's just a fad
Part of the teenage angst brigade and
I'm not, not sure,
Not too sure how it feels
To handle everyday
Like the one that just past
In the crowds of all the people

Remember today
I've no respect for you
And I miss you love
And I miss use love

Remember today
I've no respect for you
And I miss you love
And I miss you

I love the way you love
But I hate the way
I'm supposed to love you back

    Song MeaningTo me it is about: Someone with a very negative outlook on love and is a little emotionally dead/apathetic. Basically, someone that doesn't believe in love really, because it is just so overused. He'll engage in sexual relationships, but he doesn't love his partners.

    "Millionaire say
    Got a big shot deal
    And thrown it all away but"

    People say he has something good going for him, but he doesn't want it (possibly a relationship/love interest).

    "But I'm not too sure
    How I'm supposed to feel
    Or what I'm supposed to say"

    He doesn't know what people expect from him in this situation. Going with the love idea, he's not interested in love. He rejects the idea, so what do they want him to say or feel?

    "But I'm not, not sure,
    Not too sure how it feels
    To handle every day"

    Sounds lost in himself, or doesn’t know how to carry on a relationship everyday.

    "And I miss you love"

    Love as in the emotion, I assume. I always took it as he missed either the idea of love (before it became overused and dramatic) or his own ability to love another person. Also sounds like "and I misuse love" sometimes, which also makes sense.

    "Make room for the prey
    'cause I'm coming in
    With what I wanna say but
    It's gonna hurt"

    He's not going to hold back at all when he explains his feelings or lack thereof. He doesn't really care.

    "And I love the pain
    A breeding ground for hate but..."

    A little twisted. He likes causing others emotional pain, possibly because he can't feel it himself, being so apathetic. They'll hate him for it, but oh well. What does he care?

    "In the crowds of all the people"

    Either loneliness or he just feels lost. Possibly because most people carry out "normal" relationships, and he just doesn't care about love- he’s given up on it.

    "Remember today
    I've no respect for you"

    Essentially: I don't care about you. Directed towards a love interest or just love itself.

    "I love the you love
    But I hate the way
    I'm supposed to love you back"

    He likes the feeling of being loved, possibly someone's idea of love, or being made love to, but he doesn't want to have to reciprocate those feelings.

    "It's just a fad
    Part of the teenage angst brigade and"

    Love's just a fad in high school. It doesn't mean anything.

    General Commenti agree that this is one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs ever written... been a big since they started. I have checked a video of 'em and I recall Daniel Johns saying that "..the song is not about being in love, not finding love and not caring about it.."

    I hope we can get to see them play one more time.. too bad they have parted ways. love 'em together. but i like the disassociatives too :)

    beautiful. :)

    General Commentok, i love this song... maybe i should stop using the word 'love'. it's kind of ironic, see the song's talking about being out of love while i'm raving about how i love the song. i think the lyrics are saying how his view on love changed. or he used to feel but now he can't because of depression maybe. hell, i don't know what i'm talking about. my head isn't working. but i think daniel was very honest in this song. it's kinda like he's saying, he's been using love, abusing it rather. while people around him thinks they know what love is all about, he wallows in lonliness and thinks that love doesn't exist anymore. but really, the meaning of love's evolved over time, into something quite unacceptable. and it's over used. I'd quote somthing from oscar wilde "love is not fashionable anymore. the poets have killed it. they wrote too much about it that nobody believed them."-- i just thought that somehow had a connection to the song.

    General CommentI think he's talking about how he misses love, but it's failed him and he doesn't want to open up but wants that feeling and doesn't know how to get it. But what do I know....

    General Commentsince allergic was talking about the overusage of the word "love," i won't say that i love this song... i adore it. it's very honest and i think we've all been there at least once. we think we're in love, only to realize that it was simply an infatuation. the feeling is gone, and we partially want it back, but then we remember the hurt and pain that comes with it. daniel is a genius.

    General CommentI cherish this song, I so relate to what Daniel is saying. Definitely one of the deepest silverchair songs ever. I like how he's taken a negative recipirocal approach to the songs misinterpreted topic ("love") This song is so true especially when the chorus "Remember today I have respect for you"
