The Song’s Content
Some songs we do understand when we are experiencing whatever the narrator of the song feels. We can easily feel the pain or the happiness. It usually depends on our situation. So, if someone walked out of your life and left you alone right now, you will definitely feel like this song’s meant for you.
The narrator’s woman left him, for whatever the reason may be, and all he could feel is missing every single thing about her. Wherever he goes or whatever he does, he remembers her. He missed the way she looks and the time they spend together. Getting over someone is really a difficult task because everything around reminds you of that person. The narrator knows that he will find someone someday, and he will definitely. Yet for now, all he can feel is the pain of missing her, every single bit.
