About Missing You

"Missing You" is a song co-written and recorded by English musician John Waite. It was released in June 1984 as the lead single from his second album, No Brakes. It reached #1 on Billboard's Album Rock Tracks and on the Hot 100 as well as #9 on the UK Singles Chart. "Missing You" was the only record from 1984 to spend only one week at the top of the Hot 100. The song was nominated for the 1985 Best Pop Vocal Performance Male Grammy Award. Waite re-recorded the song with country/bluegrass artist Alison Krauss which appeared on her album A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection, and released it to country music radio in 2007. The re-recording peaked at #34 on the Hot Country Songs chart. The original recording has been featured in the films, Selena (1997) and Warm Bodies (2013), the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and the TV series Miami Vice (from the episode, "Heart of Darkness", originally aired 28 September 1984), as well as in the comedy sitcom Rules of Engagement, in a scene at the diner where there is a flashback of Timmy and Russell's best moments together (season 7, episode "A Wee Problem", originally aired on 6 May 2013). It also appears in the film 22 Jump Street (2014) during the montage where main characters Schmidt and Jenko begin to miss each other after going their separate ways following a fight.

Everytime I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here
And you're miles away
And I'm wonderin' why you left

And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time thinkin' about you
And it's almost driving me wild

And there's a heart that's breaking 
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all (Missing you)
Since you've been gone away (Missing you)
I ain't missing you (Missing you)
No matter what I might say (Missing you)

There's a message in the wire
And I'm sending you this signal tonight
You don't know how desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard to understand

And it's my heart that's breaking 
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all (Missing you)
Since you've been gone away (Missing you)
Oh hey, I ain't missing you (Missing you)
No matter what my friends say (Missing you)

And there's a message that I'm sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload
I ain't missing you at all (Missing you)
Since you've been gone away (Missing you)
I ain't missing you (Missing you)
No matter what my friends say (Missing you)

I ain't missing you (Missing you)
I ain't missing you, I can't lie to myself (Missing you)

And there's a storm that's raging 
Through my frozen heart tonight
I ain't missing you at all (Missing you)
Since you've been gone away (Missing you)
I ain't missing you (Missing you)
No matter what my friends say (Missing you)

Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you, 
I can't lie to myself
Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
Ain't missing you, oh no

No matter what my friends might say
I ain't missing you
