Ryan:
It's hard to believe
That I couldn't see
You were always there beside me

Sharpay:
Thought I was alone
With no one to hold

Together:
But you were always right beside me
This feeling's like no other
I want you to know
I've never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
I've never had someone
As good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before I finally found
What I've been looking for

Sharpay:
Oohhh
So good to be seen
So good to be heard

Together:
Don't have to say a word

Ryan:
For so long I was lost
So good to be found

Together:
I'm loving having you around

Ryan:
This feeling's like no other

Together:
I want you to know
I've never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
I've never had someone
As good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before
I finally found
What I've been looking for

Together:
Doo Doo DooDoo
Doo Doo DooDoo
Do Do

Woa-ah-ah-oh

    General Commentthey all used their own voices,
    and zack efron did sing.
    BUT drew seeley sang the voice of troy.
    zack's voice and drew's were fused together.
    but with more focus on drew than zack.

    why? im not sure.
    but drew was the one singing at all
    "high school musical "the concert"" shows.

    General Commentgoddamnit you people..this is SONGMEANINGS not a forum...

    this is so stupid, whats there to mean anyway? its so fucking obvious..

    but this is my song for my bestfriend/neighbor.
    theres technically nothing here that suggests theyr inlove. i mean sharpay and ryan are siblings anyway, me and my bestfriend neighbnor are like brother and sister. and i didnt know he was my neighbor, 5 hosues away from me, till 8 months ago. the funny thing is, wev been living int he same 100 square meters since we were born

    General CommentThere is meaning to it. You are just looking at it as kid music. The song is talking about having someone who knows and understands you. Finding a guy/girl that you've been looking for. The right one. People do the same thing with the Bratz, but if you go over there and look at the lyrics, you will see that the songs are not just kids songs.

    No music artist that come from kid shows or channels are taken seriously. If you looked at the words or listen to the words, you will find that the song has meaning.

    General CommentProwler Kid's absolutely right.

    Yeah, it's pretty much about finding a person who you can connect with perfectly, in any sense. This song always makes me think of my best friend.

    123-what? - it'd be hard to find a link stating that with honesty, because it is the actors singing (bar a few lines from Zac Efron, I think..)
