Na na
Na na na na na

I miss you
Miss you so bad
I don't forget you
Oh it's so sad

I hope you can hear me
I remember it clearly

[Chorus]
The day you slipped away
Was the day i found
It won't be the same
Oh

Na na
Na na na na...

    The others are saying she created this song because her Grandfather passed while she was on tour, and well. Yeah. That's the reason, I can relate, but in another aspect. My bestfriend committed suicide because she coudln't handle being teased all the time and the bullying got to her. I actually took part in that...I regret it.

    this song is about how Avril lost her grandfather and they were really close and so this is very sad. I can relate to this song very well, i feel the same way about my grandparents that died a long time ago (3 years ago), and this is the same about my 2 friends Ray and (will not say name). Also about a youtuber that died from a heart condition, you all may know him, Caleb Logan. I feel like this song is just literally me whenever i think of any people that I've lost throughout the years.... :'(

    This song is definitely about her grandfather i saw on the "Under My Skin" album by the lyrics she wrote a message for her grandfather. Not even a month ago my grandmother died and she was very close to me, i sang this song at her funeral... so i can relate... it came so quick.

    Whenever i listen to this song it reminds me of my grand parents death. Avril says she needs time to say good-bye to her grandpa before his death.Unfortunately she can't. She had a hard time when she lost her dearest person.His death is unbelievable for her.

    As most of the commenters have already said, it's about Avril Lavigne's grandfather dying. I can relate completely; my grandfather died last year and I completely unrelatedly downloaded this song a few months later. After listening to it a few times, I realized just how much I could relate and I started crying because I realized that, just like Avril says in the song, I never really got to say goodbye to my grandfather and I'll always feel guilty about that when I remember him and the day he died. I know my dad can relate even more because when his dad died he was literally in the process of travelling to see him one last time...

    I believe that this song is about losing someone you love. Everything that you do can remind you of them. I know that when my NaNa died I couldn't accept it. It was my first experience with death.

    I love this...it's about a lost loved one, and how she kinda felt she wanted more time with them. It's how I felt when my boyfriend died...it's an awesome song.
