  • Oh-uh oh-uh oh-uh oh

    It's been about a year now
    Ain't seen or heard from you
    I've been missing you crazy
    How do you how do you sleep
    I found the letter you wrote me
    It still smells just like you
    Damn those sweet memories
    How do you how do you sleep?
    How do you sleep?

    Tried my best at movin' on
    Have yet to find a girl like you
    See things now I didn't before
    Now wishin' I had more time with you

    How do you stay awake
    Knowin' all I do is think of you
    All the things we thought about
    Then, never will happen again
    If I could just see you

    If I had my way I'd come and get you girl
    In your favorite car with the missing top
    Around my way where we used to park
    And did all those things to steal your heart

    It's been about a year now
    Ain't seen or heard from you
    I've been missing you crazy
    How do you how do you sleep
    I found the letter you wrote me
    It still smells just like you
    Damn those sweet memories
    How do you how do you sleep?
    How do you sleep?

    Baby all that I hear from my friends
    Again again and again come and ask 'bout you
    They say, "We saw your girl at the game
    And damn we gotta say a big mistake by you"

    Not only does your body bang
    But I miss the conversation too
    Tell me that you're gettin' more sleep
    Can't think can't eat till I come see you

    If I had my way I'd come and get you girl
    In your favorite car with the missing top
    Around my way where we used to park
    And did all those things to steal your heart

    It's been about a year now
    Ain't seen or heard from you
    I've been missing you crazy
    How do you how do you sleep
    I found the letter you wrote me
    It still smells just like you
    Damn those sweet memories
    How do you how do you sleep?
    How do you sleep?

    Look, now it's been about a year and I'm tryin to figure out, how could ya?
    Forget about who loves you the most, why would ya?
    Heal my heart (heart), heal my brain (brain)
    Oh how I wish you could feel my pain
    'Cause I couldn't get you off my mind if I tried (hey)
    Twenty-four seven, (three six five)
    And my nights so cold (cold), days so long (long)
    They say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
    Well it's gone and I'm trippin how much I miss it
    And you steady walkin 'round like I never existed
    And it's hard to understand (hey), you got another plan (hey)
    Tryin to play harder, you got another man
    But you'll never find another like moi (moi)
    That have you ridin' round in a drop top car (car)
    Baby you a star and it's time that you know it
    So much love and it's time that we show it (LUDA!)

    It's been about a year now
    Ain't seen or heard from you
    I've been missing you crazy
    How do you how do you sleep
    I found the letter you wrote me
    It still smells just like you
    Damn those sweet memories
    How do you how do you sleep?
    How do you sleep?

    It's been about a year now
    Ain't seen or heard from you
    I've been missing you crazy
    How do you how do you sleep
    I found the letter you wrote me
    It still smells just like you
    Damn those sweet memories
    How do you how do you sleep?

  • Rhianna from Sydney, Austriai agree with Tricia
  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyBoy oh boy...how songs can predict what your going thru at the moment....This one also came out and I will always remember it from the on/off relationship and the words were so identical to how he felt about me...and the feelings he was describing to me ...wow! But I love the way Jesse sings fastly the lyrics with the background music....its an unforgettable one, especially if your thinking about the "one that got away" :)
