Ive been searching a long time
For someone exactly like you
Ive been travelling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. someone exactly
Like you.

Ive been travellin a hard road
Lookin for someone exactly like you
Ive been carryin my heavy load
Waiting for the light to come
Shining through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. someone exactly
Like you.

Ive been doin some soul searching
To find out where you're at
Ive been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands
Someone like you... etc.

Ive been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different
Drum.
But just lately I have
Realised
The best is yet to come.
Someone like you... etc.

    Ummm...absolutely...And yes only Van Morrison with that voice of his.
    the longing for your soulmate that has ended...he has arrived...what else can you say? Just what your heart is whispering...

    (Sigh)...that's all, just (sigh) this song creates such a strong physical feeling. Don't think anyone else can pull it off but Van.
