Can anyone name this song?

I used to hear it on the radio and stuff all the time. The only lyrics I remember are: "and I miss you...like the deserts miss the rain"

Re: Can anyone name this song?

But with only the information you gave us, I found several possibilities right at your finger-tips. From there you can go to youtube, last.fm, playlist.com, grooveshark, even amazon or itunes to sample the songs until you find it.

You're welcome.

Sometimes it is difficult to locate songs online due to similarities in lyrics. If there is a song that I do not know but I want to look it up later I will try to pick out some lyrics that may stand out in a search. Usually if you can get an exact phrase and use quotations that can narrow your search, i.e. "like the deserts miss the rain".

Do the deserts really miss the rain? How can you be sure?
