I ain't missing you at all
Today's #TeamEric post is a song that has been going through my head since the moment on August 20 when I read my mother's email saying my father had been diagnosed with leukemia. It's a little funny, because Dad doesn't like pop music at all. But I love this song, and it applies so very much. I hummed it late at night in my little flat in London. I sang it as I walked across Lions' Park from my parents' house to the hospice center every morning. And I cried as I watched the video just now. The song was of course written about romantic love, but most of the lyrics still apply:
Every time I think of you, I always catch my breath. And I'm still standing here, and you're miles away, And I'm wondering 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 thinking 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 Since you've been gone away I ain't missing you, no matter what I might say.
You don't know how desperate I've become, And it looks like I'm losing this fight.
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 since you've been gone away. I ain't missing you, no matter what my friends say.
I ain't missing you I ain't missing you I keep lying to myself...
