Never did much good on my own,
So I’m tryin’ to find somebody else
Never been good at finding much service,
No one else, all by myself.
Spottin’ you ain’t been easy,
I could use one hand, maybe two,
Cuz I got this spot right beside me baby waiting here just for you

So you go hide and I’ll come seek
And maybe someday you will be just sittin’ by me
Cuz I’m counting to 100 and I promise I won’t peek,
As you go hide and I come seek.

How much longer will this game go on?
I guess only time will tell.
I hate to hear that you’re all alone,
Overlook in search of someone else.

So you go hide and I’ll come seek
And maybe someday you will be just sittin’ by me,
Cuz I’m counting to 100 and I promise I won’t peek,
As you go hide and I come seek

If you just show your face
Cuz I want you to be in…in…
I want you to be in.

And you go hide and I’ll come seek
And maybe someday you will be just sittin’ by me,
Cuz I’m counting to 100 and I promise I won’t peek,
As you go hide and I come seek
…I’ll come seek

    General Commenti absolutely love this song, he just puts his whole heart into all his songs, i love the fact that its just him and his guitar, it really adds to the emotion of the song

    General Commentamazing song! this song to me about a guy who lonely, and looking for a relationship. he has somebody in mind, but they're in that back and forth, not sure what this is, kind of stage. so, like the game of love, there is confusion, and hopes of the possibility of pursing a relationship with somebody.

    General CommentI remember in concert, Matt talked about how he wrote this for his future wife that he has never met. just looking for someone to show themselves to him.

    General CommentI think this song is all about waiting for your soulmate. The songwriter believes that there is a right time for them to meet. It's like he is saying that he still hasn't found his soulmate but she's out there somewhere. Matt Wertz is a really romantic guy if he believes in soulmates.

    General CommentThis song is amazing...I can't stop listening to it. It's a straight forward meaning if you just listen to the lyrics. Another GREAT song from Matt.

    General CommentGreat song, great vocals just found this guy searching the net
    . I agree exactly with shootingstar22, about a guy who has found a girl that he really likes and they are in that back and forth stage kind of dating and kind of not. Its like he wants to start an exclusive relationship and she does too, but she isnt quite ready to take that big of a step. The best part is "How much longer will this game go on?
    I guess only time will tell. " because thats the situation im in and the only answer I can get.

    General CommentThis is sort of his equivalent of John Mayer's "Love Song for No One" .... I'm not going to say either one is better. They're both awesome songs, but it was just the first thing I thought of. Different spin on it though, kinda. I like how he turned it into a kind of game. Nice job, Wertz.
