How Can I Miss You
by Nelson

We were two ships passing that stopped to meet
Who struck a deal to be discreet
We're both adults - We knew the rules
Some passions burn as quick as the cool

Yeah, sure, you curled my toes and you made me see God
We even had a crowd, they'd have stood to applaud
The earth moved beneath us and the planets aligned
We did what could make all the saints go blind

But all that aside, when I left that implied
That you'd go your way and that I'd go mine
I fantasized we'd have distance and time

And I'd send you diamonds - I'd send you pearls
I'd send your favorite flowers from the edge of the world
I would write you a song each day that speaks of the ache in my heart every day we're apart
I would call upon the hour 24 times a day
Just to hear your voice on your voice mail play
I'd be counting down the seconds until my next chance to kiss you
But how can I miss you - whoah - when you won't go away?

Want my opinion? To tell the truth...
It's like you're wearing a Velcro suit
Can't move an inch without you there
Can't say goodbye 'cause you've stolen my air

Now I've got me a shadow where my shadow used to be
When all I wanted was a memory

Just give me some room before lust turns to hate
I'd rather starve than suffocate

I'd send you diamonds - I'd send you pearls
I'd send your favorite flowers from the edge of the world
I would write you a song each day that speaks of the ache in my heart every day we're apart
I would call upon the hour 24 times a day
Just to hear your voice on your voice mail play
I'd be counting down the seconds until my next chance to kiss you
But how can I miss you - whoah - when you won't go away?

I've forgotten where I begin and you end
So let me

Just send you diamonds - I'll send you pearls
I'd send your favorite flowers from the edge of the world
I would write you a song each day that speaks of the ache in my heart
every day we're apart
I would call upon the hour 24 times a day
Just to hear your voice on your voice mail play
I'd be counting down the seconds until my next chance to kiss you
But how can I miss you - whoah - when you won't go away?
