From Where You Are Lyrics

So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you

So far away from where you are
I'm standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss...

    I just lost my mom to cancer. The song reminds me of wishing a loved one was still here. I also have relatives on the other side of the world. The dtstance and the longing to share time with them when I am away from them slso echos to me in this song.

    I was listening to Pandora today when I heard this. It doesn't relate to me because I had a breakup or anything like that, my dad died almost two years ago of pancreatic cancer when I was twelve. I just wish that he could have been here for my high school graduation, college graduation, my wedding, to be able to meet all of his future grandchildren, and everything else in between. I just feel as though this song is saying exactly what I am feeling.

    I feel this song has to deal with a loved one, say your boyfriend or girlfriend, passing away, and then the other partner realizing how much that person actually meant to them, and how much he might have taken advantage of everything they had

    This song is my favorite song in the whole wide world because I can relate completely to it. This is my interpretation of the song. Even though is Jason Wase singing to a girl, I'll writing it the way I mean it for my boyfriend.

    He isn't calling me or getting in touch. So it's almost like he isn't himself anymore. He's far away from the person that he is.
    The distance between us, it's tearing us apart.. Because I don't see him anymore and don't talk to him anymore, we are worlds apart and I dunno whats going on in his life.
    But I miss him. More than anything in the world. And I wish it wasn't this way. I wish he was still here, with me and I wish everything goes back to the way it was.
    I can feel him sometimes. And sometimes I dream about him. I try and chase his silhoutte. But he isn't here. He isn't with me.
    But I want him to know, where ever he is right now and how ever he is, that I miss him and that I wish he never left an was still with me.

    I miss the times when we were together and we were happy. Those days and years are now erased. I miss the happiness on your face and your smile and the way the sunshine would shine on your face.
    All the little things you did for me, when you where there, I didn't realize that once you would be gone, they would mean the world to me.
    I wish you were here. Because I'm lost without you and I still wish you hadn't left.
    I love you and want you back.
