Searchin'

Searchin'

Sly & the Family Stone

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' oh, I'm searchin'
(searchin' searchin').

Tell me again why I'm alone,
am I too choosy or is a good man hard to find,
I believe there's someone for each of us,
so I've got to be, at the right place, at the right time,
in my black pumps,
I check the mirror,
although I see myself clearly, it's you I can't find,
so I'm left just...

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'

Once I thought I found my dream come true,
I woke up and found it wasn't you,
who are you ? The one, soul mate, my knight in armor,
in your face the sun will rise and set,
the Yin to my Yang, the upside in a downward trend,
yes, I'll know you when I find you,
until then...

I'm searchin with no end, for my lover and friend,
and with you I will rest and truly find my piece,
of heaven here on earth, and deep within my heart,
you are the missing part so I'll just keep on...

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'

My tears reflect the pain burried in my heart from past loves,
look me in my eyes, you'll see the need, not the fear to be enough,
tell me why do I expose my feelings, only to feel the pain again,
so I run and I run,
how far can I run from the me I find inside of you,
protection is my prison, defenses keep me bound in my stone heart,
if I conceal myself will I ever love again ?
all I need is my superman,
show me the place I can run and don't have to hide,
somebody help me,
I want to feel love, without pain.

I'm searchin with no end, for my lover and friend,
and with you I will rest and truly find my piece,
of heaven here on earth, and deep within my heart,
you are the missing part so I'll just keep on...
(I'll keep on... searchin').

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'

So I'll keep on searchin' baby, until I find you,
I'm gonna keep searchin' baby, oh, searchin' (searchin').
So I'll keep searchin' baby, until I find you,
I'm gonna keep searchin' baby, searchin'.

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin' (so I'll keep searchin' baby).

Searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'
searchin' searchin'

(Searchin') so I'll keep on searchin' baby,
(searchin') until I find you,
(searchin') I'm gonna keep searchin' baby,
(searchin') I'm searchin' searchin',
(searchin') so I'll keep searchin' baby,
(searchin') until I find you,
(searchin') I'm gonna keep searchin' baby,
(searchin') searchin'.

(Searchin' searchin') I'm searchin',
(searchin' searchin') oooh,
(searchin' searchin') searchin' searchin',
(searchin' searchin') hey, hey.
