Miss You More
Katy Perry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Saw your picture on accident
Your face has changed
The lines are sinking in
I pressed play, I should haven't
Congratulations, but do you ever wonder what we could have been? (Wonder what we could have been)
But your mind plays tricks with distance
Always makes things feel so unfinished
I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you (I wonder what we could have been)

I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you (I wonder what we could have been)

I saw a balloon floating away
I thought, did someone let go or did they lose it?
So strange you know all my secrets
Please keep them safe
And darling, you know that I'll do the same (you know that I'll do the same)

Though we're no longer in existence
Baby, you'll always be in my orbit

I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you (I wonder what we could have been)
I miss you more than I loved you
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you

We were a match but not a fit
We were a dream, unrealistic
We didn't lose, we didn't win
(Sometimes I wonder what we could've been)

Oh I miss you more than I loved you
Oh I do
I miss you more than I loved you (I wonder what we could have been)
I miss you more than I loved you
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you

(You'll always be in my orbit)




(You'll always be in my orbit) ohh
(You'll always be in my orbit)

Overall Meaning

In Katy Perry's "Miss You More," the singer reminisces about a past love that didn't work out. The song starts with her seeing a picture of her former partner and realizing how much their face has changed since they were together. The lyrics suggest that Perry is struggling with memories of the past and wondering what could have been if things had gone differently. The verse "Congratulations, but do you ever wonder what we could have been?" implies that her old lover has moved on and found success, whereas Perry is still stuck dwelling on their past.


The chorus emphasizes just how much Perry misses her former partner. She sings, "I miss you more than I loved you," which suggests that the memories and emotions from their past are more intense for her than any love she once felt. The lines "We were a match but not a fit / We were a dream, unrealistic" give insight into why the relationship ultimately fell apart. Perry describes their love as an unattainable dream, something that they could not make a reality, despite having a strong connection.


The final portion of the song emphasizes the idea that even though they are no longer together, Perry and her old lover will always be connected through their shared memories and experiences. The lyric "Though we're no longer in existence / Baby, you'll always be in my orbit" suggests that even though they have moved on, Perry's former partner will always have a place in her heart.


Overall, "Miss You More" explores the complex nature of love and loss, and the difficulty of moving on from someone who still holds a place in your heart.

"Miss You More"

Saw your picture on accident

Congratulations, but do you ever wonder what we could have been?
But you mind plays tricks with distance
Always makes things feel unfinished

I miss you more than I loved you

I miss you more than I loved you
I miss you more than I loved you
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you

Saw a balloon floating away
I thought did someone let go, or did they lose it?
So strange you know all my secrets
Please keep them safe
And darling, you know I'll do the same

The window no longer in existent
Baby, you'll always be in my orbit

I miss you more than I loved you

You'll always be in my orbit
You'll always be in my orbit

My best friend died from a terrible accident yesterday, Katy Perry was his favorite artist. This song reminds me of him so much. “I miss you more than I loved you”. I feel that.
