Video: JMSN–Thing You Miss (NSFW)

You wanted me,
But I don’t think that there’s such thing.
Well, I can be,
whatever you want me to be.

And I don’t love you, no.
But, you and I can make believe.
Pretending’s hard;
But, giving up is easy.
We can take it slow.
There’s endless possibilities.
But, hurry up because the moments fading.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

We only see
What we wanna see.
We disagree
With Reality.

And I don’t love you, no.
But, you and I can make believe.
Pretending’s hard;
But, giving up is easy.
We can take it slow.
There’s endless possibilities.
But, hurry up because the moments fading.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

We may never ever feel it again, the rush.
But, we can make you feel better the more we crush.

You know every little thing depends on trust.
Each beginning is the start of the end for us.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

JMSN delivers a new video for his track ‘Thing You Miss’. It’s a symbolic video as most of his videos are. The difference? A few things. One: There is no explanation to this one like we get on the rest of his videos/songs. Two: It may not be so obvious to some. The lyrics tell a story and the video follows BUT so many people have veils over their eyes that don’t see the simplicity in this. Well, at least how simple I see it. Two women define this: one an older lady, the other a younger one. You as the audience are left to figure out what it is, that is going on. When I saw this, this to me was a single woman: one showing her youth and the other aging. Hair played that part. The younger girl isn’t a busty, big butt, curvy woman. She is a woman. One who bares it all and shows what women look like. The other showing what an aging woman looks like. A rug was placed on the floor with Jesus on it. Symbol that brings us all as humans, as one. A worship in a sense to do good in his eyes. It just shows the respect (and maybe JMSN plays the part, lol. He looks so much like him! All bs aside…) The older woman is helping the younger woman so to speak with insecurity as her hair is her shelter. It’s her security blanket against the world and by shedding light to who she really is, shows the caring part of the older lady, the motherly figure. Everyone is so fixated on what a woman ‘should’ look like that when shown this version of a woman, people are disgusted, appalled, shallow… shattered. Perception wants a beautiful corpse with curves and muscles and strength that most women/men don’t have. This ‘version’ is either what people really fall in love with or are with but not in love with hence “and I don’t love you no, but we can make believe” many relationships are built on looks, built on education, stature or plain and simple comfort. You’re comfortable with the person that you give up and just settle. Everyone is fixated on what they want to hear, what sounds good, what is convenient, what you want. What you want to see. JMSN made a bold move by incorporating nudity as being naked shows vulnerability, shows defeat, shows all the insecurities one has. Taking this back to Adam and Eve, when created, being naked was nothing to be ashamed of. Wasn’t until the snake said eat the fruit and they saw both aspects and covered up. Society is the snake in this situation and the older lady cut away of the shame and showed the young girl who she really was. Love shouldn’t be shameful, it shouldn’t be vain and it shouldn’t be defeated. Time passes quickly and this can also symbolize that we need to figure out who we are before time is up and we are either alone or in a shitty fucking relationship because one or the other settled out of fear of being alone.

Take it for what YOU see, not for what I see. Because:

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.
