What the Song’s All About

It’s all about remembering the person you once loved. “I Still Miss Someone,” a nostalgic song, where beautiful and sad memories of the past come running back. The narrator remembers her lover as she watches people walking together. Everywhere she goes, she is being reminded of the man she once loved, and still love. She misses him so much that it hurts her a lot.

Oh I never got over those blue eyes

I see them everywhere

I miss those arms that held me

When all the love was there
