You were (not) there ~by yours truly

Hi.
I am not  a native English speaker but I've been writing songs (for my own satisfaction, that is).
Here is the latest one that I wrote and recorded using my Xperia X10 (it's bad quality, I admit it).
Note: I'm not good with music notes and all that jazz, so I played simple guitar chords...

Here is the link to the song: https://soundcloud.com/bmourad/you-were-not-there

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I'll be keeping my distance or else I'll be sucked in
I don't want to become the laughing-stock of the year
It's a paradox, but I want to see you beside me in the picture
baby come and tell me what you want to say...

[Chorus]
I've come across many seas to count, lots of high mounts And you were missing
And I've been falling down, for a long long time. Now I realize You're the one I need
And I have walked for a thousand miles, inside my mind looking for you But you were not there.
That's why I'll stay inside my shell.

[Verse 2]
I'm still waiting for the right time to say the right thing
But I feel I'm never gonna break the walls inside my heart
And I want to let you know so that you'd let me in to your mind
I will tell you what I want, so now hear me out

[Chorus]
