Written by lionel richie, babyface (1996)Performed by lionel richieHow will I know when someone loves meHow will I know if there’s no one elseI’m dyin’ to have someone who’ll love meBut I want them to love me for myselfI looked for love in all the wrong placesI searched the moon and the starsFound myself lost in a world of facesThe place I didn’t look was my heartI’ve been all around the worldTrying to find something newLord knows that something was you’cause I found in myselfThe one thing that’s trueAll I want is an ordinary girlAll I need is an ordinary girlI just want someone I can talk toSomeone I can lean on now and thenI don’t wanna lie, and pretend I’m someone elseI’m just lookin’ for a friendMy heart was going through so many changesI didn’t know which way to turnJust when I thought I had all of the answersI found I still had so much to learnHookI just want to feel lost in love foreverI want to see that look in your eyesI hope that you’ll understand what I’m saying, baby’cause girl, I need you right by my sideHookSomeone to love meSpoken:You know I’ve been all around the worldTrying to find someone newYou know at the end of my searchThat someone was youAnd I found in my heartThere can be no one but youAll I need is an ordinary girlYour love my loveYou know heaven sent you from aboveOrdinary girlYou’re the best thing in my lifeOh, oh girl
