OneRepublic – Wherever I Go lyrics

[Intro]
I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth,
Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you.
I know I could try looking for something new,
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you.

[Verse 1]
Some people lie but they're looking for magic,
Others are quietly going insane.
I feel alive when I’m close to the madness,
No easy love could ever make me feel the same.

[Chorus 2]
I know I could lie, but I won't lie to you,
Wherever I go, you're the ghost in the room.
I don't even try looking for something new,
Cause wherever I go, I'll be looking for you
.

[Verse 2]
Some people try but they can't find the magic,
Others get down on their knees and they pray
.
I come alive when I’m close to the madness,
No easy love could ever make me feel the same
,
Make me feel the same,
Make me feel the same, same, same.

[Chorus]
I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth,
Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you.
I know I could try looking for something new,
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you
,
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you, you.

[Bridge]
Some people pray to their God for some magic,
Cause no easy love could ever make them feel the same,
No easy love could ever make me feel the same,
Make me feel the same, same, same.

[Chorus]
I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth,
Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you.
I know I could try looking for something new,
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you.

[Outro]
You think it's a lie when I'm telling the truth,
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you.
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you,
Looking for you, looking for you, ah.

    This song is a story about beginning thinking love is not for you, that it's something elusive and meant for other people. But then you meet the love of your life and it sparks the magic that you never knew. Then others around you pray for something like what you have or just accept their fate as "loveless". As your relationship grows it becomes a "madness" an unbreaking attachment to your partner. You reflect on the possibility of something better than what you have but your loyalty to your partner makes them a "ghost" wherever you are when you're not together. And anyone new you meet that you have a connection with similar to that of your soulmate is ultimately no them, and no matter how far you travel and everyone you meet you're always looking to your soulmate as they are the perfect one for you.
