When you're not around  I can't do anything

I just wanted to hear your voice again
Just seeing your smile again is enough

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
When you're not around  I don't know what to do
Where do we keep the sugar and soy sauce?

When you come home

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I think I've been spoiled too much

omoi yo  todoke[1]

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Oh feelings, please get through

With corrections by Serei.
There are many ways to interpret the song title from the surface, but obviously as we saw from events in Episode 17, it is an allusion to the name of Yui's little sister Ui.
Other interpretations include:
You and I
Yui herself (English "You" + Japanese "I")
'yuuai', "partnerly love" (Japanese phonetic interpretation of the English letters)
Even 'utoi', "estranged" (Replacing & with 'to', Japanese particle for "and").
My own overly-fanciful suggestion is to take the on-reading of Ui's name kanji (憂, 'yuu', "grief"), add it with the radical for 'person' (as the "I") which will become 優, the kanji for "gentleness", Ui's character in whole. (This is ultimately why Ui was given that "depressing" kanji as her name in the first place, she "warms up to people around her").
