I want it all
Even the raindrops won't fall in my way
I'm parting the seas
I'm setting the standard for living a dream
By staying awake
And counting the days
I'm falling in love by the side of the road

Mrs. Math do you always count to thirteen?
Holding sunsets
Voting on pieces of string
Wishy-wash, tabletop, one, two, three
Does your cat have a mustache?
Does it remind you of me?

I want it all
Even for me the autumn leaves stay green
And all of the clams that is holding your hand
Could never, ever take the place all like me
But now forget the time
It's a crime
That the pearl
Of a girl
Has been waiting to be set free...

Mrs. Math do you always count to thirteen?
Holding sunsets
Voting on pieces of string
Wishy-wash, tabletop, one, two, three
Well, does your cat have a mustache?
Does it remind you of your cat with a mustache?
Does it remind you of...

The ships that sail towards the west
The largest guard the treasure chest
The water never harms the mast
It's the clouds that fool the sun to set

One, two, three four!

(The ships that sail towards the west
The largest guard the treasure chest
The water never harms the mast
It's the clouds that fool the sun to set)

Cover your eyes
Try and walk a straight line
I dare you, the darkness is robbing us blind
And although I can't see your heart
I can still hear it beat from your breast
It's like a lighthouse
It's like a lighthouse

I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you
All right

I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna find you

I'm gonna find you

    My InterpretationI want to find love
    Even depression and frustration won't keep me from love
    I'm doing whatever I can
    I'm going to be a role model for finding love
    By keeping my eyes open
    And trying everyday
    I may find love anywhere
    Fate, why am I always unlucky with love?
    Spending time at sunsets
    relying on luck to help me
    I might find love with a a waitress
    Striking up a conversation about her cat
    Could you love me as much as your cat?
    I want to find love
    Even though I'm growing old, love is still there
    And the rich guys you're pretending to love
    Will never love you the way I would
    Don't worry about when love will come
    It's a shame,
    that the girl for me,
    may not even have been born yet

    The chances we take to find a brave new world
    But always protecting my heart
    Despite the annoyances, I won't be discouraged
    Even if it looks bad, you shouldn't give up hope
    (musical jam on the excitement of love)
    Trust me and imagine
    Try to walk straight toward love
    Risk your feelings, love is the light
    Even though I don't know who you are
    I know there is someone who will love me
    It's fate
    I'm gonna find my true love
    ...

    General CommentI think it says:

    "I want it all
    Even for me the autumn leaves stay green"

    "The water never harms the mast
    It's the clouds that pull the sun to set"

    General CommentI like this song a lot, but some of the lyrics just sound like random creative blabbering. Can someone make sense of it? Is it supposed to be made sense of?

    General CommentI think that this song captures the feeling of being alone, but knowing everything is going to be okay:
    "Even the raindrops won't fall in my way I'm parting the seas I'm setting the standard for living a dream"...etc...
    that he knows there is someone out there for him:
    "I want it all"..."It's a crime That the pearl Of a girl Has been waiting to be set free..."
    That this someone likes a lot of random unexplainable things he finds interesting, or is a very unique person that is like nobody else:
    "Mrs. Math do you always count to thirteen? Holding sunsets Voting on pieces of string Wishy-wash, tabletop, one, two, three"
    i think this refers to wondering if she is looking for him too:
    "Well, does your cat have a mustache? Does it remind you of me?"
    And overall, that he feels like nothing could stop him from finding this special someone that he has never met:
    "I'm gonna find you..."
