Subject: Anyone recognize this song?

Written By: coco_pup on 04/14/06 at 7:40 pm

Hi There,

I'm after a few songs and I'm really hoping that you might be able to help me out (I've already tried my local radio stations but they've been unable to help)
it's from the 80s or 90s is a slow song/a ballad sung by a male and I think it's called "I want someone"/Give me someone but I'm not sure who the singer is. In the chorus it goes, I want someone/give me someone or I'll find the way/hide away. Any ideas? I'm really desperate been looking for this song in particular for ages now however, it seems no-one is able to help me so I thought that I'd e-mail you to see if you may recognize the song I mean.

Please e-mail me back as soon as you can as I'm really dying to know what these songs are (I really like them). I'd really appreciate it if you could when you're not busy.

Thank you kindly for your time and assistance.

Kind Regards,

This may not be it, but is it: Todd Rundgren - Hideaway?

Although the lyrics don't match and that was an early 80's song


I've been watching how you dance
Watching how you smile
Watching how you carry yourself around in a crowd
And watching what you say
You've got something that's a secret to the average eye
You've been saving something nobody's seen until now
In a hideaway
I'm not trying to invade your privacy
There are things you have a right to hide
But it's oh so cold
Standing on the outside
Will you take me to your secret hideaway
I won't tell nobody where I'm going
Won't you tell me that we're leaving right away
For the heart of your hideaway
Everybody's looking for a heaven on earth
A slice of paradise where nobody gets hurt
Someone to put the pieces back together again
When your daydreams die
Are you trying to get a message through the air to me?
Get me on your wavelength and tell me which way to go
To your hideaway
I can't stand another second in this tinker-toy world
Give me your direction
Don't make me wait anymore
It seems so far away
You can trust me with your secret fantasy
You will never know until you've tried
But it's oh so cold
Standing on the outside
I've been trying to get a message
Through the air to you
Get on my wavelength
And I'll tell you which way to go
To my hideaway
I will show you to my secret hideaway
We will tell nobody where we're going

I think part of the chorus goes more along the lines of: I want someone or/and I'll hideaway or runaway something like that it may be an Alex Lloyd song but I'm not sure.

I've been trying to find this song for ages now, so if someone can help me with this song sometime in the future please let me know.
