Civil Wars, The - To Whom It May Concern Lyrics




Why are you so far from me?
In my arms is where you ought to be
How long will you make me wait?
I don't know how much more I can take
I missed you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
How I do
Slowly counting down the days
Till I finally know your name
The way your hand feels round my waist
The way you laugh, the way your kisses taste
I missed you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
How I do
How I do
I've missed you but I haven't met you
Oh how I miss you but I haven't met you
Oh but I want to
Oh how I want to
Dear whoever you might be
I'm still waiting patiently

Civil Wars, The To Whom It May Concern Comments
  1. IB LeggJack

    💜💜💜💜💜💜

  2. RaiShei11

    I remember listening to this tearfully. My heart was heavy with longing. I was stuck in a Dr Jekyll /mr Hyde relationship and knew there had to be someone out there waiting to love me the way I’ve dreamt and prayed for. Less than a year later I finally met him! He became my best friend, my husband and the father of my child. This song means a great deal to me!

  3. Jreen Ngew

    I miss you pls come back

  4. 迪空白肖像

    So beautiful 🌹

  5. sulistyantari retno

    It hurts

  6. Jason Tomlinson

    This song is so powerful. Its about two people that are so in love with the one they know is out there that there counting down the days till they meet. Love this song. Its so beautiful. I want to find a love like this. I would like to think that this type of love is out there for us all.

  7. Joseph Shambaugh

    Is it just me or does John Paul White remind anyone else of Sirius Black in Harry Potter

  8. teddy sincero

    Makes me teary eyed everytime...

  9. Stoned Mermaid

    The tears never come to me until the end of the song and I cry beautifully and remind them 20sexonds over and over

  10. Roshi

    2018 and I still cry everytime I hear thos song. hits me and my Love.

    This song is absolutely beautiful 🌸

  12. JPhil Ricafort

    It's the year 2018 and this song still gives me all the feels. Like love, this song is just timeless.

  13. jade van Ooijen

    How long will you make me wait? (Seriously what is taking you so long)

  14. Paula Gayas

    Social medicine..

  15. Ashley

    Dear whoever you may be,
    I'm still waiting patiently. :)

  16. em harris

    whoever she might be.

  17. Caro line

    too good

  18. Bridget O'Leary

    00:51 the guys voice ughhhh i fall in love omg

  19. Jeniel Dasig

    the love of my life made me listen to this song, now he's gone and I'm still​ waiting, patiently.

  21. Stoned Mermaid

  22. Robert Puckett

    She was with me sitting in my truck told me this song was for me. strange how we lose when we already won!

  23. Lizizle

    This was my wedding song about 8 months ago😊

    Nique Le lecteur

    Lizizle Awwwwe 😍

  24. Lera Schut

    helo I is Ukreinian

  25. xd timtim

    Reminds me of the music in 'once'

  26. Juan Isidro

    this is to my future wife one day we will listen to it together😩💪

  27. Martyna

    Wonderful, so so calm. Oh all the feels :)

  28. Jon Michael

    I've always thought this song was more about a Parent Longing for their unborn child, not a lost lover. Just my own two cents

    Richard Brinker

    It fits, but I don't think a future parent longs to know how their child's kisses will taste. I think it is about the concept of soulmates--two halves waiting until they reconnect in this lifetime.

    Hannah Dillon

    I thought that too!!

    Justin Snyder

    I can see it that way

  29. Jose Musiquero

    Guys... I invite you all to listen to my song "Paranoid in love" in my channel... I promise you won't regret it... =)

  30. Isabela Nascimento

    Muito linda essa música..

  31. Meg P

    emotionally painful. I miss you Brendan Marc Sota. love meg from south Africa (in case you see this)

  32. Theya Rose

    its 2016 and im still into this song :)

    Faer Elizabeth

    ..........so are we.......

    迪空白肖像

    I'm here forever ⚘

  33. Allyson Michelle

    Was just listening to this song in the background while I was working and didn't really notice it till the chorus started to play. The words stuck out as if I'd heard them before. I kept thinking... "Is this a Bjork cover? This is part of a Bjork song..."
    She has a song called I Miss You that says "I miss you, but I haven't met you yet". While both completely different songs, I love them and had to listen to them both today :)

  34. Vi Baude

    Yes XxxAshleyRocksxx, 1:42 is truly full of emotions and feels... ;'(

  35. M. Nicole

    To my future love,
    Whoever he might be.

    迪空白肖像

  36. Wendy Longcrier

  38. Daniella Bay

    Why are you so far from me?
    In my arms is where you are to be
    How long will you make me wait?
    I don't know how much more I can take
    I missed you but I haven't met you
    Oh but I want to
    How I do
    Slowly counting down the days
    Till I finally know your name
    The way your hand feels round my waist
    The way you laugh, the way your kisses taste
    I missed you but I haven't met you
    Oh but I want to
    How I do
    How I do
    I've missed you but I haven't met you
    Oh how I miss you but I haven't met you
    Oh but I want to
    Oh how I want to
    Dear whoever you might be
    I'm still waiting patiently

    important stuf

    Daniella Bay thats not completely right

  39. V Met

  40. ChinaMo

    The lyrics are a bit... off...

  41. Brigitta Andreas

  42. עדן אנטופולסקי

    There"

    Hive Atlas

    I thought this was going to be one of those comments that was melancholy, and talking about a broken relationship. Wow was I thrown off when I found that it was about a unicorn. Gave me a good laugh.

    Aarden g

  55. P Fitz

    Since this person has no idea what the lyrics really say:

    Why are you so far from me?
    In my arms is where you are to be
    How long will you make me wait?
    I don't know how much more I can take

    I missed you
    But I haven't met you
    Oh, but I want to
    How I do

    Slowly countin' down the days
    'Til I finally know your name
    The way your hand feels 'round my waist
    The way you laugh, the way your kisses taste

    I missed you,
    But I haven't met you
    Oh, but I want to
    How I do
    How I do

    I've missed you
    But I haven't met you
    Oh, how I missed you
    But I haven't met you
    Oh, but I want to
    Oh, how I want to

    Dear whoever you might be
    I'm still waiting patiently.

    Jessie Bear

  56. Mary McGowan

    Could u do a spell check Really!!

    Bradley Burr

    The irony of asking for a spell check when she uses "u" in an actual statement is killing me.

    Mary McGowan

    Don't let it bother  you just a form of speed writing and shows us how words /new words came about.....

    Mary McGowan

    misty grey >>>i don't use caps either....lol...so what this is cyberland not english class go teach english to those who really need it.  u...lol...

    Lick My Musket Balls Yankee

    @Mary McGowan That's not speed writing, that's lazy.

    Mary McGowan

    whatevah

  80. Kristine Kruszelnicki

    But they're wrong. "How long will you make me away" Doesn't even make sense. Though that's what it might sound like, she's actually saying "how long will you make me WAIT" :P

  81. Salem

    The perfect love song for the soulmates who don't know each other yet.

  82. Ali Gamez

    For my baby, whomever and whereever you are. God won't make us wait much longer. Yours forever.
