Brian Wilson – Soul Searchin' lyrics

with Carl Wilson

I was a bum, I told a lie
I did you wrong, I made you cry

So now I'm walkin' all alone
Down the darkest streets in town
Standin' in the rain
While my tears keep fallin' down

I'm soul searchin'
How could I say goodbye?
Soul searchin'
And make you cry?

How could I leave somebody like you?
What kind of fool would be so untrue?

And I can't make any sense
No matter how I try
And all the things I've done
Come back to haunt me by and by

Soul searchin'

There's nobody like my baby
Soul searchin'
It's gonna drive me crazy

Why, oh, why
Did I ever, ever say goodbye?
I must be out of my mind
I keep walkin' and I'm wonderin'
And I'm looking for a sign

Why do I get all the bad breaks?
How could I make such stupid mistakes?

But the truth won't come to me
No matter how I rack my brain
The rain keeps fallin' down
And I'm callin' out your name

Soul searchin'
There's nobody like my baby
Soul searchin'
It's gonna drive me crazy
