Oh Lord, won't you listen in to me now
Oh Love, i got to get me back to you somehow
I never knew that life was loaded
I'd only hung around birds and bees
I never knew that things exploded
I only found it out when I was down upon my knees
Looking for my life, looking for my life

Oh boy, you've no idea what I've been through
Oh Lord, I feel so stuck that I can't get to you
Had no idea that I was heading
Toward a state of emergency
I had no fear where I was treading
I only found it out when I was down upon my knees
Looking for my life

Caught up on me with intensity
Had no idea where I was heading
I only found it out when I was down upon my knees
Looking for my life, looking for my life

Oh boys you've no idea what I've been through
Oh Lord, I got to get back somehow to you

I never knew that life was loaded
I only hung around birds and bees
I never knew that things exploded
I only found it out when I was down upon my kees
Looking for my life

I never got any any GCE's
I never knew that things exploded
I only found it out when I was down upon my knees
Looking for my life, looking for my life
Looking For my Life

    General CommentI'm probably wrong, but I think this is about George facing death and realising how beautiful life really is, he didn't appreciate things till he was trying to save his own life,apparantly he traveled around the world to different doctors looking for a cure to his cancer. I think it is an amazing song and everyone should take something from it, life is the greatest gift any of us will ever have, we just don't always realise that.Anyway I love George Harrison and think he is really underated, the album that this song is from, Brainwashed, is , in my opinion, the best solo album by any of the Beatles.

    General CommentIt's a song about innocence, about life surprising you both for good and bad. He seems to be talking about the attack he and Olivia suffer at home. He was stabbed several times at his beloved home in Friar Park, he was literally on his knees trying not to die. I think George bared his soul here, such a beautiful work of art. Gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. Brainwashed is a masterpiece, every son on it is a keeper.
