you’re what i’m looking for lyrics – rooney

“you’re what i’m looking for”

i met you at a time in my life when i was lost, when i was down,
and every hope had hit the ground
i couldn’t see how good you were, i was blind
i didn’t know what i was looking for

it’s funny sometimes how it all comes around
like a sound and like a style, it’s lost and it’s found
now it’s the time to call it a day
it’s getting old, it’s getting late
there’s only so much i can say

[chorus]
when i look at you, my troubles all go away
i’m someone new, it feels just like a new day
when you hold me tight, i get lost in your arms
i know tonight i’ve finally found what i’m looking for
you know you’re what i’m looking for

i thought i knew what was best for me,
but i need more than a fantasy and more than a dream
i keep on wondering how many times you let a good thing slip away,
and loneliness is all we find
you’re better than me, so tell me what do you see?
i’m like a dog without a leash, i’m a lock without a key
we’ve taken our time and grown back together
i can love you and miss you in all the right ways

[chorus]

it’s funny sometimes how it all comes around
like a sound and like a style, it’s lost and it’s found
now it’s the time to call it a day
it’s getting old, it’s getting late
there’s only so much i can say

[chorus]

you know you’re what i’m looking for
what i’m looking for
i’m looking for you
yeah, you
