The Story Behind the Song
[/op_liveeditor_element]
[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” top_margin=”5″]This song is reminiscent of the Laurel Canyon sound that bands like CSNY, Eagles, Graham Parsons, Jackson Browne embodied throughout their work in the 60s and 70s. The idea for this song started in Montreal on the day RS and I met, but was finished and polished after our time in the sun. This song is best imagined with the sun setting over the horizon with a cool ocean breeze.

Moving on can be challenging. How long does it take until you’re ready to let someone back into your life? The answer is different for everyone, and we all have different ways of coping with loss. Some people jump right into a new relationship, never having fully healed or learned to live by themselves. Fear of being alone can be a very strong emotional motivator. Others never completely get over a big loss in their life. They carry that emotional scar throughout life- sometimes forever. And while it may not prevent a new relationship from building into something new with someone else, the memory never truly fades. This song is about that “moving on” period. A time when you’re trying to pick up the pieces, and rediscover the person you were before the relationship. You’re not quite healed yet…..but you’re getting there, slowly.[/text_block][/op_liveeditor_element]

Lyrics

[op_liveeditor_element][text_block]

I woke up early this morning from the same old dream
About a time when you were mine
I felt the same old feelings coming back to me
Same old memories running through my mind
I was tossing and turning when the sun came up
Made me wish that I could just move on
But I’ve been missing you baby
Since you’ve been gone

I’ve tried to find somebody but it don’t feel right
I know a stranger’s touch ain’t what I need
Is there anybody in this world tonight
Who can fill this whole inside of me?
I made a million changes after losing you
But every little thing feels wrong
Cause I’ve been missing you baby
Since you’ve been gone

This world can be so cold, yeah it can be so cruel
Takes a miracle to make it through
But the hardest times I’ve come across in life
Were always easier when I had you

I’ve heard that things get better with a little time
Never knew that it could take so long
Cause I’ve been missing you baby
Since you’ve been gone

This world can be so cold, yeah it can be so cruel
Takes a miracle to make it through
But the hardest times I’ve come across in life
Were always easier when I had you

I was tossing and turning when the sun came up
Made me wish that I could just move on
But I’ve been missing you baby
Since you’ve been gone
