Artist's Notes

I first started writing this song influenced by the book "Gun Love:  A Novel" by Jennifer Clement.

It then evolved and I finished it during a 2 month truck camping trip with my wife when we were in very close quarters


How Can I Miss You 

By Brent Godfrey   ©   2019            



How can I miss you if you don?t go away

How can I miss you if you decide to stay

How can I miss you tell me dear

How can I miss you when you?re so very near



I want to be worthy of death by living a full life

We just happen to be stardust riding the edge of a knife    




Verse 2:

Put aside the fear of living.   There are risks you have to take.

It?s a mistake to be too careful.   Just take a leap of faith




Verse 3:

When your chance comes you have to take it.   Don?t you think of me.

When you love somebody you have to set them free.


Instrumental Chorus


Verse 4:

You have your own dreams.   You need to conquer your own fears

We?re on a path together but sometimes directions veer.



Chorus   - Repeat last line 2 more times.
