Don't Miss It

James Blake

About Don't Miss It

"Don't Miss It" is a song by English electronic music producer and singer-songwriter James Blake from his fourth album, Assume Form. It was written by Blake and produced alongside Dominic Maker of electronic music duo Mount Kimbie and Dan Foat. A lyric video was released on 24 May 2018, having been premiered that day on an episode of his BBC Radio 1 residency. However, it was only released as single by Polydor Records on 4 June of that year. It is a piano ballad with additional drums accompanied by Blake's auto-tuned vocals. The song received acclaim from music critics, however, a mixed review by Pitchfork, which labelled the track as "sad boy music" was met with a critical response from Blake, who deemed the expression "unhealthy and problematic when used to describe men just openly talking about their feelings."

The world has shut me out
If I give everything I'll lose everything
Everything is about me
I am the most important thing
And you really haven't thought 
All those cyclical thoughts for a while

And as it keeps going
I could never be involved
I could never really see in real time
I could never really be involved
And as it keeps on going
I could avoid real time
I could ignore my busy mind
I could avoid contact with eyes
I could avoid going outside
I could avoid wasting my life
I could avoid
I could avoid 20 20 sight
I could avoid standing in line
I could avoid the 405
I could avoid coming to life
I could say anything I like
I could switch off whenever I like
I could sleep whenever I like
I could leave in the middle of the night
Oh, but I'd miss it
Don't miss it
Don't miss it like I did

And as it keeps going
If there's no need for the perfect image
And nothing seems that wrong
Don't miss it
When you know there's better conversation 
Waiting for you at home
And as it keeps on going
You forget whether it was the beginning or end
When you can't believe your luck
You're with your friend
When you get to hang out 
With your favourite person everyday
When the dull pain goes away
Don't miss it (don't miss it)
When you stop being a ghost in a shell
And everybody keeps saying you look well
Don't miss it
Like I did
Don't miss it
Don't miss it like I did
Like I did
