They just told me take a pause
Here between the takes at the studio,
And you came into my mind.
It's kind of funny, for you were the cause
Of me being here on the radio
And though that's another time,
I'm still wanting you,
I've been hunting for you.
I'm still wanting you,
I need to find you.
I'm just the same sad singer of the lonely songs
You long since left behind you.
Since you've gone I've gone along,
Been writing the music I've always wanted to,
And they just picked up on me.
I'm putting myself here inside each song
And finding my music is still so full of you.


I dreamed of being here,
But I never dreamed that you would be so long time gone from me,
Oh, I'm still wanting you,
I've been hunting for you.
I'm still wanting you,
I need to find you.
I'm just the same sad singer of the lonely songs
You long since left behind you.
Oh, me finding music's why I lost you,
Now, it's the only chance I've got.
They're bringing in the strings to melt your heart somehow.
You couldn't hear me then,
But maybe you can hear me now.
Oh, I'm still wanting you,
I've been hunting for you.
I'm still wanting you,
I need to find you.
I'm just the same sad singer of the lonely songs
You long since left behind you.
When I'm still wanting you.
