Brand New - Missing You Lyrics




I, I am feeling like a veteran
Uncompensated for the blood I've left to pool on foreign grounds
And I sometimes reach to rub at aching legs
But they've been dust for over a decade
And you're the limb I've lost but somehow I still feel it

Until I awake, we just hope that you made it
We hope that you're celebrating
With people you miss
And burning like a beacon
Guiding our ship around this hellish shoal
I'm happy to admit that maybe I am a little depressed
Cause I'm missing you to death

And now it's only records of my memory
Some little thing you gave posthumously
The details all dragged out
To think of all the paintings we would be without
If Van Gogh had gone and died face down from loss of blood
The night he went and hacked his ear off

[x3]
Until I awake, we just hope that you made it
We hope that you're celebrating
With people you miss
And burning like a beacon
Guiding our ship around this hellish shoal
I'm happy to admit that maybe I am a little depressed
Cause I'm missing you to death

Brand New Missing You Comments
  1. Bang !

    Holy shit! Where did that come from?!
    I mean that isn’t the demo.. which is wholly quality in its own right. There is something entirely different going into n here..
    This song is brilliant... and need to tell this girl I see each morning that we need to listen to this together... in my bed. (This song makes me believe that it can happen)

  2. Dirk Beer

    🙇 hace mucho que no escuchaba este cumbion . .

  3. Jordan Taylor

    underrated as fuck

  4. Network Operations

    If Brand New could release a new song at least once a year i'd be OK with that :) please.. don't go away forever :( I know that none of you will ever stop playing music so long as your limbs are able.

    I just sat here a few more minutes thinking of what else to say,
    but i've got nothing.

  5. Brandon Clark

    Great great song, lyrics are on point

  6. Ryndan Riley

    I was hoping they'd fix the mispronunciation of posthumously but I guess that's what I get for being a nerd.

  7. Adam Lopez

    Brand new Brand new cover of Brand new

  8. DoubIeRose

    prefer the demo's intro

  9. Josh

    so silly that this only has 90k views. g-d bless brand new for never selling out.

  10. ADiamondQuartz

    Anyone else catch some Tommy Tutone in there?

  11. Sakura Matou

    The melody  in the bridge/outro sounds a little bit like the 80s one-hit-wonder "867-5309/Jenny" by Tommy Tutone. That being said, I love both songs. :)

  12. Bexyboo97

    THIS SONG IS SOOOOO GOOD

  13. Emily Elizabeth

    Oh my god this is beautiful

  14. Brian Magnan

    This brings back so many memories from middle school. First torrented album my brother gave me was the "leaked demos" when I was in 7th grade. and now i'm 22!

  15. スターダスト

    *i will listen to this song over and over until i hate it and then listen to it again*

  16. Ramiz Andoni

    OMG. This was my favorite out of the 8 or so untitled songs that leaked before the devil and god album. I was so upset it didn't make the album because it is one of my favorite brand new songs of all time!!

  17. JeyB

    I always loved this song! So glad they "reworked" it. Sounds great!

  18. james bond

    We love you Brand New.

  19. Artemis Anastasiadis

    I, I am feeling like a veteran

    But they've been dust for over a decade
    And you're the limb I've lost but somehow I still feel it

    Until I awake, we just hope that you made it
    We hope that you're celebrating

    And burning like a beacon

    I'm happy to admit that maybe I am a little depressed

  20. ๔гєค๓t คฬคץ

  23. No you

    overproduced. faster bpm than the original too.

  24. CitizensOfEarth

    who the fuc k disliked this

    Brian Magnan

    "the demo was so much better" people. "this is so over produced" people. "they should have left it how it was" people that's who.

    Marianne is Flammable

    I love your username and pfp

  25. BlackRodney

    I thought I wouldn't care for the reworked demos.. Thought the originals were fine as is.. But then..... "how many kids did we have.."
    (:O)

  26. CCONX

    Originally called Beacons (Untitled 4) off of Fight Off Your Demons. I personally love both versions of this song.

  27. Paul Piper

    I wanna hear them all reworked!

  28. StinkingSkunk

    That added bridge <3 Oh my god.

  29. zombieteenager007

    A Little Depressed!

  30. toastburntbread

    this... makes my heart skip with excitement.

  31. Iamnotimaginative

    Same chords as Jenny. Listen near the end. Can't unhear it

    TeaL

    when i get to that part i start singing 8675309

  32. me you

    its finnaly complete....:'3

  33. huntasoup

    My ears are happy

  34. Daniel Gray

    I am still waiting to get my dollar back from all those years ago.

    Ghoulish

    I'm pretty sure they made good on that? I saw pictures of the lyric books. It's not like it mattered anyways, the most cryptic lyrics in most songs were blacked out in the lyric book. Could be wrong, I saw it on the internet after all!

    Andrew Maxwell

    I have the lyric book in question and can confirm it exists. It is presented as an issue of a zine called "Pogolith," all B&W.

  35. Kirby M.

    THANK YOU SIR MAY I HAVE ANOTHER

  36. człowiek pismo

    I DIT MY WAITING... 12 YEARS OF IT... IN AZKABAN!!!...

    Daniel Gray

    Fuck yes

    Derek B

    człowiek pismo lmfao I just want to thank you I am embarrassed laughing my ass off at the gym at this comment hahaha so good

  37. człowiek pismo

    Just let me purchase the album already. JUST LEMME DO IT.

  38. OuterSpaceLace

    Anyone like the demo version better?

    Zach Hiner

    No. Remastered with the added bridge = heaven.

    music?!

    Kind of. The harmonies were a lot brighter in the demo and the intro sounds a bit staler in this one.

    dielawn

    Yes. Honestly this version is way to muddy to me. All the sounds blur together. Plus the energy is lacking compared to the OG version.

    TeaL

    I loved the ending of the demo.

  39. Jeffrey Frattini-Cox

    Fuck brand new. Tired of their bullshit. Not even gonna listen to or buy the new album.

    Everyday Nat

    Tired of your comments on all the videos mate.

    Lucas Garibaldi

    Why is that?

    Juan Binckoski

    Because he's angry and dumb

    David of House Leewright

    They never wanted you as a fan anyway.

  40. Clown Fish Autozoophilia

    loving it guys keep it up

  41. kyle schaefer

    a brand new song by brand new in this brand new day gives me a brand new song to listen to made by the band brand new which gives me a brand new goosebumps in my brand new prostetic arm

  42. Untitled Untitled

    This is gold

  43. Justin Ichikawa

    Love it

  44. Ben Marriott

    Brand New covers Brand New

    Rashotcake

    Ben Marriott it's a brand new brand new cover of brand new

  45. Perrin Seelye

    Oh my fucking god this is just masterful.

    Grace Barker

    My exact thoughts

  46. Erika

    THIS IS AMAZING TOO.

  47. Hi-ν Guy

    Ohh Man...I'm digging they reworked demo. Getting more would be 👌👌

  48. phillip miranda

    brings me back to highschool

  49. Mladen T

    This sounds really good. From what I can gather, these are new versions of old songs. But I'm having a bit of trouble catching up, can anyone inform me if a new Brand New album is on its way?

    jacob snow

    +StinkingSkunk then after that, Jesse said they're just, "not playing music for anyone except themselves anymore.”

    StinkingSkunk

    Which could mean that in 2018, they won't be playing live shows anymore.

    Zach Hiner

    +StinkingSkunk I saw them twice on their current tour, and both times Jesse said that "Brand New is done." I really think this upcoming album is their last, and they won't be touring post-release. Sad, sad times.

    StinkingSkunk

    @Zach Hiner That I know for sure. I was just saying the Modest Mouse tour with Brand New wasn't going to be their last, and it wasn't seeing tha they announced a new tour. 

    raquel Dominguez

    Mladen T they wrote a letter to the fans apologizing but that the album would not be coming out this year 💔 couldn't help but feel like the letter was also sounding like a goodbye 😞

  50. Ayron Tarbox

    I Love This So Much

  51. jeff emerson

    Great to see you guys haven't abandoned you're old demos.

    No Face

    for a moment i read "demons' 😂

    StinkingSkunk

    Seems like those were never fully fought off lol

    Maxmilian Dealy

    +StinkingSkunk good one.

    Grant Lunstedt

    If I hadn't looked at the replies to the original post I would still think it says demons 😂

  52. marcus nunez

    such a beautiful song, one of my favorites.
