Got a picture of you I carry in my heart
Close my eyes to see it when the world gets dark
Got a memory of you I carry in my soul
I wrap it close around me when the nights get cold
If you asked me how I'm doin', I'd say just fine
But the truth is baby, if you could read my mind

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
After all this time you're still with me its true
Somehow you remain locked so deep inside
Baby, baby, oh baby, not a day goes by

I still wait for the phone in the middle of the night
Thinkin' you might call me if your dreams don't turn out right
And it still amazes me that I lie here in the dark
Wishin' you were next to me, your head against my heart
If you asked me how I'm doin', I'd say just fine
But the truth is baby, if you could read my mind

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
After all this time you're still with me its true
Somehow you remain locked so deep inside
Baby, baby, oh baby, not a day goes by

Minutes turn to hours and the hours to days
Seems it's been forever that I've felt this way

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
After all this time, you're still with me its true
Somehow you remain locked so deep inside
Baby, baby, oh baby, not a day goes by

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song. It completely describes how I feel right now. My boyfriend and I broke up awhile ago but I miss him and want him back. I think about him every day and hope that one day, if his dreams don't turn out right, he'll be back again. :)

    General CommentYou are so right. I feel the same way. My boyfriend and I just broke up. He is a Marine and I guess his job comes first, there wasn't much time left for me between his job and school. I want him to follow his dreams and be successful and happy, but if they don't turn out right, I'll still be here waiting on him.

    General Comment.. and I thought I was the only one. My boyfriend and I split up ( we weren't actually ever going out, we just worked together and made out alot, he was a real jerk but I loved him. You'd have to really know the situation befor you understand it.) anyway, I've cried ever since he left, he told me he wasn't ready for a relationship because he's still young.. but so am I and all I want is a guy and can talk to and be myself around... and thats him! so if his dreams don't turn out right, I'll still be waiting right where he left me.

    General CommentDaisy- I know what your talking about! That's why I love this song so much too, I'm going through the whole not together thing but still make out a lot stuff! Terrible huh? Even though hes leaving for college in a few months I want there to be something between us other then a friendship--atleast till he leaves and then see what happeneds..maybe it will be a mistake, but who knows threw whatever i will always be waiting for him when he comes home!

    General CommentThis song is awesome! It makes me think of one of this awesome guy whom I would love to be w/ but certain consequences are preventing that...and not a day goes by that I don't think of him...but I know that if it was meant to be one day we will be together...

    General CommentThis song reminds me of an ex of mine that I broke up with. He used to sing it to me.. It just reminds me of all the good times we had together, and all the love we had for each other.

    General CommentTo me, its this guy who I love so much, and I can't stop thinking about but I can'y be with because he's not ready. I have all the memories of us together that I look back on everyday. I've liked this guy since I met him and that was almost a year ago, now all I can think of is him. I'm still right here waiting for him to feel ready and it doesn't go away. As much as he knows I love him, he has no idea how I feel.

    General CommentOH MY GOODNESS :]
    i'm in love with this song!! one of my best friends and sort of boyfriend
    [not technically going out but basically]
    moved away to Cali....and i hardly talk to him anymore !! i miss him tons!!! and this song is perfect for my situation!! he's been with a few other girls and it's only been a couple months and stuff and i'm COMPLETELY not over him : [
    and i wish he was back up here and i constantly think of him and i wish he felt the same way because i love him soooooo much but he doesn't feel the same way anymore : [
    so i'm in love with this song because inside i'm dying and he has NOOOO idea!!!
    there's a lot more to the whole story...but that's the basic stuff....
