Missing You Lyrics

I heard that you've been
Self-medicating in the quiet of your room,
Your sweet, suburban tomb.
And if you need a friend,
I'll help you stitch up your wounds.

I heard that you've been
Having some trouble finding your place in the...

    This song has such a good message. I believe this song is about losing your life to drugs, depression, or any other dangerous addiction. The person is "missing out" because they're hiding from everything and most times they are giving in to their addiction. The song is about taking your life back from these addictions and it's also saying that a friend will be there to help you.

    This song hits home for me as i had a friend that was going through selfharm and was being bullied at school when i first heard this song it reminded me of her the first lyrics of the song "I heard that you've been
    Self-medicating in the quiet of your room,
    Your sweet, suburban tomb.
    And if you need a friend,
    I'll help you stitch up your wounds." to me means when you find out someone's been inflicting harm upon themselves and saying how they spend a lot of time in their "sweet suburban tomb" referring to their bed and how when you're depressed you tend not to want to do anything and the rest of the song put into a few words is helping someone get through a tough time and kind of explaining that even when you're in your roughest point of your life your friend will still be there for you encouraging you to stop and they will want to help you get better instead of abandoning you

    This is my personal view of the song so it might not match yours completely ( sorry for any errors )

    So I used to listen to this song a lot and it used to literally take me to another world. I think that the song is about how children and teens of today's society are having bad times, the lyric "you've been having trouble finding your place in the world" makes me think about people not feeling like they belong in today's society however when the lyric "f!ck the world" comes up it suggests the idea that even though we don't know our place, screw society because it's your own life and you can do what you want, over all the song conveys the idea that we all have tough times and don't give up because it will get better.

    This song to me symbolizes the horrible addictions so many young lives are encountering, especially the terrible heroin addiction sweeping the USA. Lives have been destroyed by such "self-medications" and "it just takes a little push pull on through." These addicted persons are missing out on their true callings in their own life, and their family and friends are missing the who those people once were and who they should be. "you'll be missing out, we'll be missing you." it's a wild ride because of the struggles that they have with wanting to quit their addictions, but it's so very very difficult for them to overcome the obstacles within themselves and within the world. These people need someone to truly care for them to help them overcome the addiction, without dragging that said person down to their level. SO HORRIBLE heroin is. This song touched me with this meaning I interpret with my personal life where I am a victim of heroin. I am not a user, nut my baby's mother is and we miss her and pray she will overcome her addiction. I am a single father now because of this. This song helps me relate this to my personal life. Thank you for reading my interpretation.

    To me I think this song is about someone that is going through a tough time. But Alex is trying to tell you that even when life gets you down and you feel like ending it all, don't give up. You have so much to live for and Alex is telling u that he will always be there for you when you need a friend.

    this song makes me very happy. for me, its about a person (you) who's going through a rough stage, self-harming. (self medicating)
    the song is expressing how they're (you're) not alone and that you will make it through the tough time. He (I) know how you feel and is there for you when you need it.
