Well, I got here early trying to decide
If there was nothing to hope for or nothing inside
But a mixed up girl with plenty to hide from the light of day.

Then a friend made me laugh, bought me a drink,
I walked in this garden and I started to think,
What little I know is quick as a wink but I've know a real long time.

I know what I'm looking for now. I know what I'm looking for now.
This world will mix you up, oh and bring you down.
I know what I'm looking for now.

Everyone's looking, they're not sure at what,
Holding onto illusions like it's all that they got,
Putting a mystery where a mystery is not,
Can you tell me why?

When you can light up a stranger just passing by,
Start revolutions with the glint in your eye,
Sing Hallelujah with a breath or a sigh
And still know the way home.

I know what I'm looking for now. I know what I'm looking for now.
This world will mix you up, oh and bring you down.
I know what I'm looking for now.

All of these miles I've come,
All of these dreams I've chased in my mind,
All for something small and simple to find.

So you did what you could, you meant what you said,
You look like an angel so hold up your head,
A little lost here ain't so bad.
That ain't the reason to cry.

I know what I'm looking for now. I know what I'm looking for now.
This world will mix you up, oh and bring you down.
I know what I'm looking for now.
