Lyrics:

I’ve been looking for a lover
But I haven’t met her yet
She’ll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live
And make the best of what I see

Where the sun hits the water
And the mountains meet the sand
There’s a beach that I walk along sometimes
And maybe there I’ll meet her
And we’ll start to say ‘hello’
And never stop to think of any other time

Looking’ for a love that’s right for me
I don’t know how long it’s going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don’t mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me

Looking’ for a love that’s right for me
I don’t know how long it’s going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don’t mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me

I’ve been looking for a lover
But I haven’t met her yet
She’ll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live
And make the best of what I see
