"Miss You So Much" is the fifth track from Miley Cyrus' sixth studio album, Younger Now. It was released on September 29, 2017 along with the album through RCA Records.[1]

In 2015, during the Milky Milky Milk Tour in Detroit, Miley performed with this song once, only saying it was a new song. Many fans thought the song was called "Right Here" and were surprised to see it on the Younger Now Album Tracklist.

Background Edit

Miley said in an interview with NPR: "I actually wrote that for one of my really close friends whose boyfriend surprisingly OD'ed. I wrote that song about how … once someone’s gone, they’re not really gone; if you love them, they’re here".

"You know, my grandma’s in her 80s, and I had been hanging out with her the day I was going to record that song. And it made me kind of think about her, the more I started singing it. I started thinking about, “How can I miss you already?” Hopefully no time in my near future, but there’s going to be probably a time in my life where I’m not gonna have her. And [she’s] been someone that I really, really lean on. She’s my biggest fan! she literally runs my fan club. I mean that literally; she writes back to all my fans, she does all my fan mail. So it made me think about how you can miss someone when they’re still here, but you start thinking about a time when they might not be."

She also sang it to her grandmother once in 2015.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
They say love can drive ya crazy, my dear
I wanna trap you in a locket, or in my pocket
So I can keep you near
You know I'd never hurt you
If you fall, I'd pick you up and I'd drink your tears
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?

[Verse 2]
They say good things come to those who wait
It's like countin' in light years
I'd physically live without you, but I don't want to
And death's never been my fear
You can take my blood, take my bones
My heart is yours, I volunteer
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?

[Chorus]
When you look up at a rainbow
Do you ever wonder what's really waiting at the end?
I don't want no gold, nothing's more than you
The amount is hard to even comprehend
Nothing I can do, I lost control
Something we hold on to so dear
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?

[Verse 3]
And how at this optimal time did you just appear?
Everyone under their guard, so full of shit
But you are just so sheer
You're my God, you're my faith
On my knees, I look at you and I revere
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?

[Chorus 2]
When you look up at the cosmos
Do you ever wonder if there's really even an end?
It might go on forever, like my love for you
An amount that's hard to even comprehend
I won't waste my time with wonder, in apprehension, or livin' life in fear
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?

[Outro]
You're my God, you're my faith
On my knees, I look at you and I revere
You can take my blood, take my bones
My heart is yours, I volunteer
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?
But how can I miss you so much when you're right here?
