I miss the beating of your heart.
I need to stay so strong.
I wish we weren’t apart.

Why must we always part?
The days they seem so long,
I miss the beating of your heart.

My tears they want to start.
I sing the same old song.
I wish we weren’t apart.

Cupid’s arrow is a dart.
My anger seems so wrong.
I miss the beating of your heart.

We thought we were so smart.
Cell phones ringing like a gong,
I wish we weren’t apart

Your route I like to chart,
I could just ride along.
I miss the beating of your heart.
I wish we weren’t apart.
