Looking elsewhere, looking around
I sat me down, I sat me down
Looking for answers where they can't be found
I come around, I come around

Elsewhere, that's where I was looking
When I should have been looking right over there
Over and over, never too far
That's where I'll be looking, wherever you are

Looking for good love, for love sweet and true
Looking for you, I was looking for you
I knew when I saw you, that my looking was through
Brought you my heart, and I hope it will do

Elsewhere, that's where I was looking
When I should have been looking right over there
Over and over, never too far
That's where I'll be looking, wherever you are

Looking elsewhere from the sky to the ground
From the sea to the sunset, from the hill to the town
From the creek to the bar room, from the dawn till the sun
Sinks over the mountain and another day is done

Elsewhere, that's where I was looking
When I should have been looking right over there
Over and over, right over there
Sweet apple blossoms twined in your hair

Looking elsewhere
