Oingo Boingo - Find You Lyrics




Everytime I look around my shoulder
(I'm still trying to find you)

Everytime I look around my shoulder
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Everytime I wake up all alone without you
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
When I look in mirrors - faint reflection of you
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Just behind my back I feel your warmth and turn
But I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
When I drive I sometimes speak to no one softly
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
When I dream of you I wake in pools of laughter
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
When I close my eyes I feel your breathing near me
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
With your heart in rhythm with mine every morning
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)

Don't you know
There's a place where only dreaming people go
There's the finest line between us now
I don't know if I'm right or I'm wrong
And I don't know if it's worth the wait

For every time I look around my shoulder
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Everytime I wake up all alone ohh
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
(I'm still...)
(I'm still trying to find you)
With your heart in rhythm with my every morning
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)

Don't you know
There's a place where only sleeping people go
There's a finest line between us now
I don't know if I'm right or I'm wrong
And I don't know if it's worth the wait
For every time I look around my shoulder
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Everytime I wake up all alone without you
I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Ooooooh I'm still trying to find you
(I'm still trying to find you)
Ooooooh...

  1. ashes

    Danny elfman release this challenge

  2. Josan Crewbar

    Boi-Ngo is a decent album but it's pretty much my least favorite thing they ever did--tied with Dark at the End of the Tunnel, anyway. With Find You and Remember My Name, though, it would probably be my overall favorite out of their entire discography. I don't understand why they were cut.

  3. Rana C

    glad you posted this. I have it on tape somewhere in my basement. iTunes keeps deleting stuff (including this) and I didn't want to look for it. Probably have to bite the bullet for the bootleg tapes I made at concerts. ugh.

    Lord Broccoli

    *please* find and release those tapes. I beg ye

    Noel_Kberg89

    I hate Apple Music with a passion for this very reason. I switched to Spotify because of it. Apple either removes songs or updates the versions you already have and it’s not cool.

  4. Kompakt

    I feel like Boi-ngo could have been a better hit, had they finished some of the canned songs.

    Lord Broccoli

    True, but they were also kinda stuck to their audience in So-Cal solely because of how *different* they were. Sad truth.

  5. Sara Galindo

    Goddamit I feel this song in my *soul* . The wistful tone, the wailing falsetto, the earnest, bittersweet desperation of the lyrics. Even the way the fucked up quality makes the song feel as fading and ephemeral as the dreams the narrator speaks of. The repetition of "I'm still trying to find you" evoking both such vulnerable longing, yet also implying a stubborn refusal to let go of someone who may not even be around to find anymore. Just. Fuck this song. Fuck this song for being so good.

  6. GEMINITREKKER

    Great Song! Thank You for the new (Old Stock) of music! This band should have been one of the top bands of the 80s, ahead of their time for sure!

  7. Boingo Bear

    One of the best unreleased tracks

  8. Oingo Boingo Tapes

    Every time I look around my shoulder

    Every time I look around my shoulder
    I'm still trying to find you
    Every time I wake up all alone without you
    I'm still trying to find you

    When I look in mirrors, faint reflection of you
    I'm still trying to find you
    Just behind my back, I feel your warmth and turn but
    I'm still trying to find you

    When I drive I sometimes speak to no one softly
    I'm still trying to find you
    When I dream of you I wake in pools of laughter
    I'm still trying to find you

    When I close my eyes and feel you breathing near me
    I'm still trying to find you
    Feel your heart in rhythm with mine every morning
    I'm still trying to find you

    Don't you know
    There's a place where only dreaming people go
    There's a finest line between us now
    I don't know if I'm right or I'm wrong
    And I don't know if it's worth the wait

    For every time I look around my shoulder
    I'm still trying to find you
    Everytime I wake up all alone
    I'm still trying to find you

    Feel your heart in rhythm with mine every morning
    I'm still trying to find you

    Don't you know
    There's a place where only sleeping people go
    There's a finest line between us now
    I don't know if I'm right or I'm wrong
    And I don't know if it's worth the wait

    For every time I look around my shoulder
    I'm still trying to find you
    Everytime I wake up all alone without you
    I'm still trying to find you...
