"Searchin'" as written by and Mark Thomas....
Give, give, give it to me...now

Oh, I've been searchin', baby
For so long that I
Don't even know what I'm lookin' for
I've been searchin' and I
I've heard it's wrong
Do you think I really care?
Well, I've been lookin' for
Something to turn me on
But I can't seem to find it anywhere
I've been lookin' so, so far from home
Much too far

You know, there's one thing that I
I just can't stand
And you've known it from the beginning
When I see's you with that bastard hand-in-hand
I just wanna cut off your goddamn wrist

They say good things come to those who wait
Well, I been waiting for so long
Good things come to those who wait
Seems I been waiting all my life
I been searchin', searchin', searchin', searchin'
Ow!

I'll keep searchin' baby, since you know I will
Till I find out just what I want from life
Yeah, I'll keep searchin' 'till I
Till I gets my fill
And it ain't gonna come easy, no

They say good things come to those who wait
Well, I been waiting for so long
Good things come to those who wait
Seems I been waiting all my life
Good things come
Hell! I've been good! I wanna come!

    General CommentMy favorite GR song along with P.C.C. The meaning seems pretty obvious. The song is (intensely) dark and funny at the same time. Good beat, great transition into bridge and chorus.
