Looking for the World

Looking for the World

I was standing on the corner
When she blew into town like the wind
I knew the moment I saw her
I would never be the same again

I’ve spent a lifetime looking
For just one thing I could hold on to
But trying to hold on to her
Was just the desperate act of a fool

Chorus:
She said I’m looking for the world
And one thing’s pretty clear
I must have made a wrong turn
You can’t see the world from here
We fell in together for a while
I did my best to make her my girl
But the whole time she was with me
She was looking for the world

For a while I thought we’d make it
And though I think she might have loved me
The thing that I wanted the most
Was something that wasn’t meant to be

She pulled out a map and showed me
All the places she had marked with stars
And the places she was going
Were a long, long way from where we were

Chorus:
She said I’m looking for the world
And one thing’s pretty clear
I must have made a wrong turn
You can’t see the world from here
We fell in together for a while
I did my best to make her my girl
But the whole time she was with me
She was looking for the world

Bridge:
There were stars on her map
And tears in my eyes
As I stood on that corner
Kissing her goodbye
And the words we spoke as we kissed
Went something like this

Chorus:
She said I’m looking for the world
And one thing’s pretty clear
I must have made a wrong turn
You can’t see the world from here
We fell in together for a while
I did my best to make her my girl
But the whole time she was with me
She was looking for the world
