I was born with a hunger nobody could name
Mama said I was restless, just made that way
But I was looking for you, I was looking for you
I'd wake up crying and she'd hold me tight
But something about it just didn't feel right
'Cause I was looking for you, I was looking for you

I was looking for you all this time, I was looking for you
Hoping I'd find a little light in the darkness
A little shelter at sea, a little sign from above
Now that you were looking for me

I used to ride down Main Street in the middle of the night
I was looking for trouble and I found it alright
It was easy to do, I was looking for you
And I thought it was a miracle when you looked my way
And I felt my heart beat when I heard you say
I was looking for you, girl, I was looking for you

I was looking for you all this time, I was looking for you
Hoping I'd find a little light in the darkness
A little shelter at sea, a little sign from above
Now that you were looking for me

One day it's rapture, the next despair
I pulled up at a stoplight and I saw you there
And I saw her too, I was looking for you
Last night I met someone and I looked in his eyes
Took me a minute 'fore I realized
That I was looking for you, I was looking for you

I was looking for you all this time, I was looking for you
Hoping I'd find a little light in the darkness
A little shelter at sea, a little sign from above
Now that you were looking for me
