"Miss You" is an R&B ballad written by Teddy Bishop. It was a previously unreleased song on Aaliyah's first posthumously released compilation album, I Care 4 U (2002) and released as its lead single during the first quarter of 2003 (see 2003 in music). The song reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and entered the top 10 in Germany and Taiwan. "Miss You" also reached the top 20 in Canada, Denmark and Switzerland.

The song appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Volume 2.

Rapper Jay-Z made a tribute to Aaliyah using the "Miss You" instrumental and chorus, this is the official remix.

Lyrics

The song is sung from the perspective of a young woman who desperately misses her boyfriend, who has gone off to college. She wonders if he still loves her, despite their separation, and fears she may have lost him to his new life. The chorus states:

It's been too long and I'm lost without you
What am I going to do? Said I've been
Needing you, wanting you (Said I need you..)
Wondering if you're the same and who's been with you
Is your heart still mine? I wanna cry sometimes
I miss you

In other parts of the song, it makes reference to their relationship in the past, and how she cares about him even now, saying that she doesn't want to be a distraction from his new life:

Now I'm sitting here thinking 'bout you
And the days we used to share...
It's driving me crazy, I don't know what to do
I'm just wondering if you still care.
I don't wanna let you know that it's killing me
I know you got another life
You gotta concentrate, baby
Come back, to me...

Overall, the song has no ending resolution, the bridge stating:

I.. can't.. breathe.. no.. more
Since you went away...
I don't really feel like talking
Don't wanna hear you don't love me
Baby, do you understand me?
I can't do a thing without you

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
