Eternally Missed Lyrics - Muse

Review The Song (15)



Chase your dreams away
Glass needles in the hay
The sun forgives the clouds
You are my holy shroud
Mu mu mu mu

I just don't care if it's real
That won't change how it feels
I just don't care if it's real
That won't change how it feels

No it doesn't change

You can't resist
Making me feel
Eternally missed
You can't resist
And you can't resist
Making me feel

Chase your dreams away
Glass needles in the hay
The sun forgives the clouds
You are my holy shroud

I just don't care if it's real
That won't change how it feels
And I just don't care if it's real
That won't change how it feels
No it doesn't change

And you can't resist
Making me feel
Eternally missed
You can't resist
You can't resist
Making me feel

You can't resist
Making me feel
Eternally missed
You can't resist
You can't resist
Making me feel

You can't resist
Making me feel
Eternally missed
And you can't resist
And you can't resist
Making me feel

Chase your dreams away
Glass needles in the hay
The sun forgives the clouds
you are my holy shroud
Mu mu mu mu

Guys, guys, guys! Come on now! | Reviewer: Tim | 10/19/12

The intro and outro pose a great question, what is this song?

One could argue that the winding music box at the beginning is being started by some disfigured creature who's alone and wishes nothing but to be in the world and feel loved. The song itself is the music going on in his head, how he imagines it to be this glorious song.

Then at the end it's just him and the music box, his horribly distorted voice bringing him back to reality.

Eh? Yeah? Spooky.

Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/25/11

I love Muse! For me this song is about the question: would it change how you feel about everything, or most of it, that has gone wrong with the world the past century if it was a deliberate scheme part of the NWO, or if it is just the situation we perceive now in the media... would you be more outraged? equally? less even? or don't you just care at all?

Just Brilliant | Reviewer: Tegan | 1/6/11

This is what I think the song could be about. So you like someone, and you want to get with them, but you know that 'getting with them' won't mean the same to them as it does to you. So you feel as though you are being led on. 'You can't resist making me feel eternally missed' in other words, they make you feel needed when really they are just a friend who wants a little more from you...and well, 'I don't care if it's real, that won't change how it feels' pretty self explanatory I guess, you don't care you're being used...it stills feels like you're needed, and it still feels real. This is an amazing song, and it's helped me get through last year, using my interpretation. It's amazingly worded, and the instruments just make me get goose bumps. I love Muse, and this has to be one of the best B Sides along with The Groove <3

MUSE!!!!!! | Reviewer: Muserrr95 | 8/29/10

No idea why this song is a b-side should have made it onto Absolution :(
Other really cool b-sides from Muse include Fury, The Groove, Futrism and Easily they're worth listening to awesome songs :)

I <3 MUSE!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Just a thought | Reviewer: Craig | 7/5/10

Alright let me start off by saying: I love this song and Muse is the best band ever! This song is pretty awesome (especially the solo and the some-what creepy outro). Now im just tossing an idea out there, but this song can be about masturbation. Now let me tell you what I mean. Sometimes lonely people dream of having someone close, and that probably won't hapen for them. So they can resort to masturbation as a "holy shroud" or escape. And with masturbation (I'll call it mb frm now on, I hate that word XD), you expierence smewhat similar to sex so that can explan the lines "I just don't care if its real, that won't change how it feels" and the about the resist part: mb'ing can be this persons addiction but they feel "eternally missed" every time they do it. Well that is pretty much how someone could make out what this song is about, but I am in no way claiming this to be true about the lyrics. Muse usually makes songs that can have multiple meanings so we are all right! :D

tessa | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/16/10

its definitely about an unrequited love in my opinion...
he loves someone, is obsessed, can't get enough of them
wants their heart and theirsoul! in Hysteria

and here in eternally missed its similar he is living in the delusion of the onesided love...and doesnt want to let go...of this 'love' this feeling although it not real...

Mmm, interesting. And friggin awesome as expected | Reviewer: Master Noob | 10/10/09

When u think about it, the song is a b-side to hysteria right? a lot of b sides will have something or other (ver indirect usually) to do with their original a side. And this one resembles Hysteria in the idea that its somehting he need/wants badly and he cannot help it, its an addiction. However addiction doesnt meen drugs. It could, but it could also very easily meen a woman he feels like that for, a love beyond love. It may not be a two way feeling, he knows that it is shaky to believe it, but he doesnt care because of the feeling.

Thats just my thoughts. Still an epic, and i meen EPIC song. Muse ftw!

I can't get enough!! | Reviewer: MuseLover<3 | 6/28/09

This song is so great, so beautiful, so awesome!!
I can't stop listening to it!
Muse are so divine, they make so excellent music that I can not describe! (I'm running out of the adjectives :P)
I'm really looking forward to their new album, but it's soooo far away :(

Yea | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/15/09

Eternally missed is a very good b-side personally one of my favorite. Majority of their b-sides should be album songs cuz they're very good like Glorious or Fury. (However Eternally Missed > Hysteria, maybe, but not the live version)

Absolutely beautiful | Reviewer: Fya-hime | 4/15/09

Well, this is a great song! I love Muse and I believe that they're one of the best bands of all time, they have it all!
And here's my opinion about the meaning: I think it's about drugs ("needles"). It describes how even if what they give him is not real, it doesn't change the feeling he gets from it ("I just don't care if it's real, That won't change how it feels"). It protects him from the real world ("you are my holy shroud"), the cruel world and it makes him feel "eternally missed". But that's just my opinion!

Amazing! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/13/09

I wonder why no one has put up what it means? (Ponder) Well, I will give it a shot! I think this songs has a feel of love in it (strange huh?) It's saying... foirget everyone, you are too centered around what others think of you, be with me forever all I need is you. How did I do?

Immenseness! | Reviewer: ILoveMuseMuchly<3 | 2/10/09

Muse are amazing, they are my favourite band of all time.
This should DEFINITELY have been put on the Absolution album, and like a lot of their B-Sides, this song rocks, and SURELY they could have fitted this ONE last song onto the album?
Matt's vocals really go well with the guitar and bass, and drums. Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme are NO DOUBT the greatest men alive, and the are GODS to me.
I know many people who don't agree with me here, but they truly are immense, and whoever disagrees are losers.

Amazing | Reviewer: Ronni | 11/24/08

This song blows me away. Muse truly is genius in it's lyrics and music. I, too, cannot comprehend why this song was not put on Absolution. It matches the feel of the whole album. The desperation in Matt's voice, the haunting of that combined with the noises in the background. This could have been the bands best track on the album, but I respect their decision. After all, it makes it more exciting that it's something they made outside of the box.

Eternally Missed | Reviewer: Karen | 3/23/07

I think this song is genius...I really dont know why it was made into a b-side! I think there area quite a few songs that could have been taken out of the Absolution album to include this particular one..i mean all the songs on Absolution are amazing, but i really think Eternally Missed fits the whole 'feel' of the album. Amazing solo's from Matt, beautiful lyrics and the difference in how the song was put together also makes for a brilliant work of art :D

wow... | Reviewer: superficialfilter | 7/10/04

That just about sums this song up. In my opinion, it is one of Muse's best b-sides. Starting with the simple guitar riff and Mat's voice, it quickly develops into a thumping rock song with the entry of the heavy, punching bass. The solo is something amazing; continuing the bss riff, the guitar blends beautifully in with the bass. As an ending to the song, it goes very Radiohead-Kid A style with a musical box replacing the guitar, bass and drums, while Mat's voice becomes nothing more than a strained whisper.

This is a work of art. It would have fitted brilliantly as a single by itself on Absolution, and in my opinion it is a better song than Hysteria, which is the single on which Eternally Missed is the b-side.
