You're Going to be Missed

You’re Going to Be Missed
It’s been so long…
Since I’ve sang a song
About you, of course – my Love…
You fluttered into my mind like a lovely dove
I have nothing left of you…if only you knew
I hung your picture on my wall
I had everything before I lost my other shoe
And I have tried to stand tall…through it all…

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

All you were to me was a headache and a fever
That’s how I thought of you…now, I’m unsure
I never thought you’d change the way you did behind my back
You’re not getting me back…you left me, cold and insecure, on the magazine rack
I’m on my own, but not alone
You were my one and only backbone

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I cried…I bled…I dreamt of you in a sugar-coated dream
I lied…to myself…I slept in pastures so yellow and dry…
I’m breaking by the seams
I’m breaking by the seams
You mended my broken dreams
He mended my crooked halo…
And refined my aura’s glow 

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I shouldn’t be complaining…
But, I’m not satisfied with your offer…
Instead, I should be sustaining 
A positive mindset, but I’m upset…because you…
Because you weren’t a friend, but a foe from the start
You were never there for me when I needed a shoulder to lay on
You were never there dawn to dusk…you haven’t noticed the pain 
In my eyes…in my eyes…avalanching from my eyes…I can’t shine on…like the handsome dawn…

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I claimed you as my own…like a gold piece, dug out from the ground…
Now, I need His healing rain
To shower upon me relief…obliterate the grief from my heart…without a sound…
I’m spell-bound and gravity-bound – all packed up in one…
And now, I’m shattered by your absence….waiting for the sun
To shine on…upon me…. to murder the night of envy

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I wish I were as bold as a knight…during midnight hours
I remember pulling out the weeds in my life…
I watered down the roots of wisdom in my head
I remember being a fruitful tree until strife
Caught me off guard…now, I’m doused in dread 

Tears force me to look like a fool
Fears make me appear like a worthless tool
I’m stronger than I realize
I’m not alone
And I’m not a failure 
You’re going to be missed
