Song ID Help!

Hi guys,

My sister wrote me an email yesterday:

----
"was in a store today and heard a VERY familiar song, which I think you may have, or introduced to me...It's definitely a Will song...i can't seem to make out the lyrics but in the chorus the singer says (he has a soft foky kind of voice)

"Im so strong (?not sure that word)...I'm waitin' on you, I'm so strong(?)...I'm waitin' on you"

wish i could call you and sing it to you! I'm dying to get it."
----

I did speak to her, and her singing it to me didn't help. She said she's not sure if the word is "strong" or some other word that starts with an "s." It's male vocals, and she said it sounds like a folky early-to-mid 90s alternative type song.

She did a search, and found nothing but gospel songs. (I don't listen to gospel, so I'm pretty sure it's not that.) Just got to work and ran a quick search, and figure this one might be a toughie; I should probably come to you guys with this, since I've seen results with other queries.

I know this is tough, based on the information I gave, so this might be answered by someone who just knows the song already; but any help would be appreciated.

I would if I could get a hold of her; obviously it would help. She moved to London for a job, late last year; and her job keeps her occupied most of the time. :/

Re: Song ID Help!

I wanted Bob to sing it; not the Chimpmunks.

But I heard it anyway, and am now audibly scarred for life.

What about this? It doesn't fully agree with your description, but it is folky:

Hi Norm,

Nope, that isn't it. It's also not the kind of music I'd share with my sister.

But I appreciate the help!

Re: Song ID Help!

Re: Song ID Help!

It's my name. I can't verify if it's a Will song for anyone, unless I hear it for myself.

(But in all honesty, I don't know what she considers to be a Will song; whatever that song is probably.)
