Story

I Wanna See You was recorded on our first record, a 45 rpm single (yep, real vinyl!).  This song was the flip side on the single, the other one being Love Me Today.  It was written for my first serious girlfriend, Janis, who was a big part of my life for many years during our late adolescence and early adulthood--an important and formative time in our lives.  I wrote it shortly after we split up (sadly, but amicably), after our worlds had diverged (a natural consequence of growing up, I suppose) and recorded and released it a few months later.  We still have a number of copies of the original record, if anyone is interested, and we plan to re-release both songs in digital format in the near future, and make them available via CD Baby, iTunes, and a number of other digital music retailers.

So this one's for you, Boo.  I'm a better person for having known you, and the world is a better place because you were in it.  Just as this song will live forever now that it's been launched into the vastness of cyberspace, so too will you live in the hearts of all those whose lives you touched.  Rest in peace.

Loneliness tears the soul, when the fire still burns.

Love takes a heavy toll, when it's not returned.

Like seasons we change.

We laugh and we cry.

Love waxes and wanes, but the scar still remains,

long after it's died.

 

You were my first real love,

but you know when it's right.

And I thought you'd always be right there at my side.

Was I so naive to think it could last?

Cuz' we were growing up, we were looking around,

but my love held fast.

 

chorus

Now I want to touch you,

I want to hold you,

I want to see you again.

 

Love is such a funny game when you're playing for keeps.

And one heart gets broken, when the price is too steep.

But I'll never regret, I'll never forget, falling in love with you.

 

If I could find a way to make you see,

just what you mean to me, but what would I say?

Well, darling this heartache has left me empty inside.

But I'm still hoping that someday you'll change your name to mine.

 

chorus

Now I want to touch you,

I want to hold you,

I want to see you again.

 

I want to touch you,

You know I still love you,

I want to see you again.

I want to see you again.
