I've been looking for a lover
But i haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like i pictured her to be
In her eyes i will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what i see.

Where the sun hits the water
And the mountains meet the sand
There's a beach that i walk along sometimes
And maybe there i'll meet her
And we'll start to say 'hello'
And never stop to think of any other time.

Looking' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But i hope i treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me.

Looking' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But i hope i treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me.

I've been looking for a lover
But i haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like i pictured her to be
In her eyes i will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what i see.

    General Commentwow, no comments yet. this is one of my favorite neil young records.
    i think the song is pretty straight forward. hes hoping to find his true love and he realizes that it is probably going to be somebody he would have never expected.
