I Miss You
David Ruffin Lyrics


Your love is fading,
I can feel your love fading
Girl it's fading away from me

Cause your touch,your touch has grown cold
As if someone else controls your very soul
I've fooled myself long as I can
I can feel the presence of another man

It's there when you speak my name
It's just not the same
Oh baby, I'm losing you
It's in the air
It's everywhere.
Oh baby I'm losing you (Losing you)

When I look into your eyes
A reflection of a face I see
I'm hurtin', downhearted and worried girl,
Cause that face doesn't belong to me

It's all over your face
Someone's taken my place
Oh baby, I'm losing you
You try hard to hide
The emptiness inside,
Oh I can tell I'm losing you.

I don't want to lose you

Oh, I can tell when we kiss
From the tenderness I miss
Oh, little girl I'm losing you

Girl I can feel it in my bones
In a day you'll be gone

Oh baby, I'm losing you

Oh my dear
What happened to the love we shared
Oh oh baby I'm losing you

I know it's true
There's someone new
Oh baby baby baby, I'm losing you

"I Miss You"
Ooh... ooh...
(Oh, I)
Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh...
(Oh, I)
(I miss you, baby)
(Oh...)

I swear I do
(Miss you) Mmm, hmm

Every since you went away
I ain't been doing nothing but
(Thinking, thinking) With my head in my hands
(Thinking)

You been away from so long
and I just don't think I can carry on so I start
(Drinking, drinking) Each and every night
(Drinking)

Trying to drown all my loneliness away
I don't forget a day
Fall down on my knees wishing for your return
And oh, how I hurt

'Cause I (Oh, I) Oh, I (Oh, I)
(Miss you) I miss you, baby
(Miss you)
(Miss you, miss you)
Oh, Lord (Miss you)

You can look at my eyes and see
That a great big man like me has been
(Crying, crying) Crying my heart and soul out to you, baby
(Crying)

Sitting in my lonely room
Filled with nothing but gloom and I feel like
(Dying, dying) Hey, y'all help me
(Dying)

'Cause ever since the day you left
I don't know what to do with myself
Oh... I wish for your return
And oh, how I hurt

'Cause I (Oh, I) Oh, I (Oh, I)
(Miss you) I miss you, baby
(Miss you)
(Miss you, miss you)
I miss you, baby (Miss you), oh... I

Oh, I
I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you) I swear I do (Miss you)

Oh, I (Oh, I) Oh, I (Oh, I)
(Miss you, miss you)
I miss you, baby, without you, baby, they're ain't no future
(Miss you, miss you, miss you) Yeah, oh... no

I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you)
I miss you, baby, I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you, miss you)
Without you I don't know what to do with myself, what to do with my time

Hmm
Hello
Did I disturb you
I didn't mean to take up too much of your time but
Just thought I'd give you a ring and see how you was doing
How's, how's everything
A friend of mine told me he saw you the other day
Said you was still looking good
Heh, made me feel kind of good, you know
Told me, told me that you did ask about me
Heh
I been really meaning to try to get to talk to you
For now but
You know how a man's pride is
Sometimes it kind of won't let him do what he wanna do

Yeah, baby
(Oh, I), come back to me, darling
(Miss you, miss you) (Miss you, miss you)
I don't want nobody else, hey, hey, baby (Miss you)
(Oh, I, Oh, I) Hey, baby
(Miss you, miss you)
I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you, miss you)
I miss you, baby, I don't know what to do with my time, with myself
Without you, baby

Hmm, guess what
I know this will knock you dead but
I even went out and got a gig
Oh, forgot you know hip to the hip talk
Plain J-O-B, baby
In eight hours a day, all the overtime I can get
I don't know, I guess it might be too late but
I swear I miss you

Yeah, Lord knows
(Miss you, miss you)
(Miss you)
Don't do me like this, baby (Miss you, miss you)
Yeah, I'm on my knees, I'm begging you please
(Oh, I, Oh, I)
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you)
(Miss you)
Oh, Lord (Miss you, miss you)
Hey, girl, hey, girl
Hey, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
(Oh, I, Oh, I)
I can't go on without you, baby
(Miss you, miss you)
(Miss you, miss you, miss you)
What am I gonna do, what can I say
I love you, baby, ha

Heh, remember how I used to always say how lucky I done been
You know being they got that lottery, I hit it
I'd like to kind of make up for
A lot of things that just seemed not to go right
Don't want you to think I'm trying to buy back your love or your friendship
But now I feel I got a chance to kind of make things up to you a little bit
Heh, enough about you and me
How's my little son?
Hmm, he ever ask about me?
Just a little bit
does he still like to go down by the supermarket?
If I could just
If I could just see you
Can't really say what you mean or what you want over the phone
I swear I miss you
You done heard it ten times or more but
I swear I done changed
I swear I done changed

I miss you, baby
(Miss you, miss you)
(Miss you, miss you) Oh, Lord)
Miss you, baby, yeah, baby, yeah, baby, yeah, baby
(Oh, I, Oh, I)
(Miss you, miss you)
(Miss you, miss you, miss you, baby)

My man D Ruffin. Hell of a voice on this dude. Definitely one of the best. Harold Melvin & Blue notes did it first but Dave made it his own

Terrence Taylor

@Leroy Wimblery Please lead to your source of information. Writers are Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff.

Cortez Armstrong

@MRnewkTrane DON'T READ IT BKITCH BC I TEXT IN ALL CAPS IT'S MY THANG BKITCH. BUT I KNOW FOR A FACT DAVID WROTE THIS SONG FOR HIMSELF ALL THAT OTHER BS DON'T MATTER WHO DID IT NEXT AND ALL THAT. THIS IS DAVID SONG AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE DAVID SONG U DUMB FUCC.

MRnewkTrane

@Cortez Armstrong Saying it loud don't make you right........ seriously ease up with the shouting. Classic Philly Jam that actually was a series of songs that went to the Blue notes after the Dells decided to sign with another record label........so that's more knowledge for you & you didn't even have to open a book.........now troll on elsewhere.

Cortez Armstrong

@MRnewkTrane BS DAVID WROTE THIS SONG AND SOLD IT FOR DRUGS WHAT YOUR TALKING BOUT IS BS

MRnewkTrane

@Leroy Wimblery This song- was just one of the endless Philly Classics written by two-thirds of the Big 3 genius of the Philly Sound- Mr.Kenny Gamble & Mr. Leon Huff! And the other Philly genius-Mr. Thom Bell- arranged some jams on the album by the Bluenotes from which their original version came. But Mr. Ruffin puts his foot deep in this classic. The vocal add-ons of 'sitting here drinking some gin' just adds to his crawling-on-the-floor-begging version.
