Overall Meaning

Vybz Kartel's song "Missing You A Lot" is a heartfelt ballad about a man who deeply regrets the mistakes he made in his relationship and wants to make amends with his lover. In the first verse, he expresses his disbelief that their relationship has come to an end and how much he needs her in his life. He is lonely and standing in the dark, thinking about how he could possibly live without her love. The chorus repeats the sentiment that he is missing her greatly since she has left, and how she is all that he has in the world. The second verse is about how she told him she was leaving and how much it hurt to know that he broke her trust. He lies in bed lonely, thinking about how he can make up for the hurt he caused. The third verse reflects on the better times they shared and how he wishes he could hug and kiss her again. He knows he cannot change his "dutty" (dirty) ways, but hopes that his growth as a man will prove that he can do better. The chorus repeats once more, and the song ends with a final plea for her love.


This song is a departure from Vybz Kartel's usual style of dancehall or reggae music, instead showcasing his ability to create a more slow and melodic song. The lyrics are raw and emotional, showing a softer side of the artist that is not usually seen in his music. It is a relatable song for anyone who has experienced the pain of losing someone they deeply loved.
