I'm feeling nothing
But all alone
Just missin someone
I don't even know

But until I find him
I'll wait patiently
Just feeling nothing
Inside of me

And where are you baby?
Where can you be?
Why aren't you here
Lovin me?

Cause I want to kiss you
And make you feel right
I want to lay with you
All through the night

And I wanna feel passion, I wanna feel pain
I wanna weep at the sound of your name
Come make me laugh or come make me cry
Just make me feel alive

And so I wait
For that glorious day
When the one I dream of
Comes my way

And when our lips touch
So tenderly
I know I'll feel something
Inside of me

I wanna feel passion, I wanna feel pain
I wanna weep at the sound of your name
Come make me laugh or come make me cry
Just make me feel alive

    General CommentThis song is more than just the "song alyssa sings in the bar in Chasing Amy" Without this song the movie would lose so much of its power and significance. Some people who listen to this song think its just another sappy love song. It so much more. In the couple of verses this song has it explains all the anguish, hate, pain and depression envolved in being alone, being in love or lust as the case may be, having dreams, being different and being homosexual/bi-sexual. Its a beautiful song from a very beautiful movie. I congratualte Joey Lauren Adams on this song and for making Chasing Amy such a good movie. And thank you for making me "feel alive".

    General CommentI think the lyric in the second stanza above is "Until I find them" instead of "Until I find him"... makes sense, too, when you realize she's singing about a woman.

    This is, I'd like to restate, a stunningly beautiful song. Thank you, Joey.

    General CommentI don't think this song necessarily has to be only for the homo/bi sexual set. I really think it applies to ANYONE at that particular stand point of being alone and/or awaiting the proverbial "one"

    General Commentjoey lauren adams wrote this song and then kevin smith, the director of chasing amy (who she was dating at the time, because the movie is based on their relationship) liked it so much he put it in the movie. she actually wrote it as a country song, but they changed it to fit the scene better. definitely an awesome scene in one of my favorite movies!

    General CommentThis song makes me so happy and depressed, all at once... i am surprised that joey lauren adams wrote it. it makes me think of /him/, and the fact that he doesn't know how i feel about him. but every time i hear his name, i want to cry.
