all i was looking for was you lyrics – fastball

when i was a boy
i could not stand the silence
i needed the noise
i was underage and overjoyed
changing my ways
but there’s so many ways to change
i’m growing up
i’m getting wise i’m getting strange

all i was looking for was you
all i was looking for was you
i ran my ship into the ground
chasing some high and lonesome sound
from venice beach to kathmandu
my money’s gone my time it flew
all i was looking for was you
(all this time) [x2]

some marry for love
some marry for money
dollars and cents
through open arms and barbed wire fence
running away
from everything that looks like me
i heard a voice
i saw your face, it set me free

all i was looking for was you
all i was looking for was you
the endless highways i road down
the girls i kissed in every town
midnight on heartbreak avenue
all twisted up on b*tches brew
all i was looking for was you

running away
from everything that looks like me
i heard a voice
i saw your face, it set me free

all i was looking for was you
all i was looking for was you
the endless highways i road down
the girls i kissed in every town
midnight on heartbreak avenue
all twisted up on b*tches brew
all i was looking for was you
(all this time)
i learned the words i sang the song
then i got lost in babylon
i ran my ship into the ground
chasing some high and lonesome sound
the lies i told you kept them through
n*body knows me like you do
all i was looking for was you
