Darryl Worley: I Miss Those Times And Nights, “I Miss My Friend”

“I Miss My Friend” is one of the best songs of Darryl Worley. Perhaps everyone can relate to this song. It may mean break up but it is about a loss of significant other.

The lines, “I miss those times, I miss those nights” alone are pretty painful.

Indeed, the song is a tear-jerking track. Memories of yesterday can be brought back thru the song.

The Music Video…

The video alone can bring you to tears. The scene shows Worley singing in front of a lady sitting on the couch. The lady staring at him then started crying. The music continues, afterward, the lady stood up passing through Worley. In this scenario, it can be understood that the lady was not staring at Worley but at the TV monitor watching a video clip. Then Worley stood up and walked away in the white light.

The Lyrics…

I miss my friend…

The very first line of the chorus could mean a lot. Literally, you simply miss a friend. A friend of your childhood maybe, back in high school or in college, someone doing silly things, partners in crime, the one you can depend, or a somebody to lean on.

The one my heart and soul confided in…

Nevertheless, the second line by now described the song about romantic interest between two people. By this time, it has a precise and profound presentation of love.

The one I felt the safest with…

Isn’t it that if we have someone in our life that we truly love, we feel safe and we can do anything we want as long as we are with that person?

The one who knew just what to say to make me laugh again…

It is not just doing things together but also having a conversation. That conversation can lead to a stronger relationship. Because you can chat about the things you did, the arguments, and as well as take time to patch things up. Of course, it will always include a funny conversation that both of you will laugh about.

And let the light back in…

But things aren’t they were before. Everything has changed. The saddest alteration that we didn’t expect to happen. Losing someone.

I miss my friend…

Whatever your definition of a friend. We all have someone in our lives that at some point we are missing once in a while or even missing every day.

I miss the colors that you brought into my life
Your golden smile, those blue-green eyes
I miss your gentle voice in lonely times like now
Saying it’ll be alright…

The Remembrance…

Lyrics of the song are hurtful. Essentially, it can flash you back to those happy times and sad times, too. Those memories can no longer be brought back. And no matter how hard we try, it can never be back.

I miss those times, miss those nights
I even miss our silly fights
The making up
The morning talks
And those late afternoon walks
I miss my friend…

The Lesson…

However, the song has a lot of messages. I Miss My Friend teaches us not be holding too much to something or someone in our past. Because it will just imprison and will not help us to be happy again. Moreover, it teaches us not to dwell instead move forward. With that, we can smile and face the life ahead of us.

Above all, say “I love you” as much and as often as you can. Never waste time. Show you care. Express how you love that person. For, in the end, we’ll never have to regret.

The Song…

“I Miss My Friend” was written by Tom Shapiro, Mark Nesler, and Tony Martin. The song became Darryl Worley’s first number one single on the Hot Country Songs chart. Furthermore, it also crossed over to pop radio, peaking at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
