[Rihanna]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe
Searching for you babe

Where have you been
Cause I never see you out
Are you hiding from me, yeah?
Somewhere in the crowd

[Hook]
Where have you been,
All my life, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life

[Beat Break]

[Rihanna]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe

Searching for you babe

Where have you been
Cause I never see you out
Are you hiding from me, yeah?
Somewhere in the crowd

[Hook]
Where have you been,
All my life, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life
Where have you been, all my life

[Beat Break]

Where have you been, all my life

[Bridge]
You can have me all you want
Any way, any day
To show me where you are tonight

[Outro]
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for someone
Someone who can please me
Love me all night long
I've been everywhere, man
Looking for you babe
Looking for you babe
Searching for you babe

    It means to me that. Rihanna is singing to that one guy she has missn. She has been looking and searching for him. She thinks he is hiding in the crowd. But now she has found him and asking him in her main words,"where have you been, all my life"

    It sounds as if she is talking about a fufilling drug. The whole theme of the album is raw, intense emotion. She is clearly hurt in this album and this song personifies her quest to cover up the pain. The song represents her discovery of a drug that has masked her pain.
