Lyrics
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 I'm still wanting you
