"The chorus should be classified as a sing along jam that instantly makes you bop along with one arm in the air dancing on a wave as he sings about rediscovering who he is and what’s been missing from his life: sleeping until whenever he wants to, watching the ballgames, playing golf on weekends, having poker nights, etc."

THE COUNTRY NOTE
“What I’ve Been Missing is a song that expresses how it feels to get back into the way life was before the last relationship happened. Sometimes it can be a breath of fresh air to go back to the things you want to do, but there is that thought in your head that wonders what they are doing without you. Breakups can be hard, but good things do come from them."
