What I Miss About You


Missing the train every morning at 8:52
sipping coffee from the same cup as you
the sharing of secrets we thought no one else knew
that's what I miss about you

The new way that love had made me see
your bashful grin when you asked if I would like your key
the knowing way you used to caress me
that's what I miss about you

You stole in with your starry smile exciting me
driving with you in your new car, feeling free
and if it's true that love is blind, then I was blind willingly
you made me feel we had a future, that could be and would be

The way you said I'd be no one on my own
your habit of soaking yourself in over-priced cologne
the way you turned the lights out when I knew you were home
that's what I don't miss about you

I bet you're using your weary magic like it's new
driving so fast with a new fool beside you
presumably believing she's the last of the lucky few
I wonder if she knows she's being lied to like I do

The way I only doubted myself when I was with you
like I was wrong for expecting something from life too
your skill of putting me down in front of everyone we knew
that's what I don't miss about you
