I searched for you but you were nowhere to be found
A coastal state and all I stood on was frozen ground
And now I found you, it's been three months to the day
Oh and baby, it's so good to see you, how I missed your face

The bedroom light was on as you waltzed on through the hall
My hands were shaking, it was like I never knew you at all
You move so slowly, with such eloquence and grace
Oh and baby, it's so good to see you, how I missed your face
Oh baby, it's so good to see you, how I missed your face

Princess on the porch as I waited for the flood
I gave you all the love I could, I gave you all that I should
And now you tell me you are dying to be free
Oh baby, it's so good to see you, why'd you have to leave?
Oh baby, it's so good to see you, why'd you have to
to leave?

I walked out to my car, in my pocket that's when I found the key
I turned around to see you staring right back at me
That's when I realized how you are and how we'll never be
Oh 'cause baby, it's not you I was searching for, it's only me
Oh baby, it's not you I was searching for, it's only me
Oh baby, it's not you I was searching for, it's only
it's only me

Oh baby, it's not you I was searching for, it's only

    General CommentI don't know if this songs mean anything special to me. But I do know that I think that this is his best song ever written. It's just amazing how good it is!

    General Commentthe feeling he puts into the chorus makes me shiver. he really means it when he sings 'Oh and baby it's so good to see you, how I missed your face', astounding song from a vastly underated artist. Josh has got to be one of the most consistent arstist around today. but guys like Jack Johnson seem to get more recognition. No-one around can touch Josh for his song writing skills. His melodies are some of the greatest I've ever heard.

    General Comment"That's when I realized how you are and how we'll never be"

    I think that's what he's singing. It makes more sense to me anyways.
