I've been looking for someone
But I don't know his name
All the faces before me
They all look the same

But there's got to be one face
And one pair of eyes
That will light me on fire
When they're looking in mine

O I'm looking for someone
O I'm looking for someone

For many good years now
I've been walking alone
But I know when I find him
It will feel like home

When the wedding is over
I'll be able to say
I'm so glad that I waited
For this day

O I'm looking for someone
O I'm looking for someone
O I'm looking for someone
Who's looking for me

When the wedding is over
I'll be able to say
I'm so glad that I waited
For this day

O I'm looking for someone
O I'm looking for someone
O I'm looking for someone

Who's looking for me

    General Comment“I was toying with ‘Shadowland’ ending the album, but there is too much sadness in that song. It almost hurts me to listen to it. I wanted the record to end positively, with hope and C Major! I called in some of my better singing male friends for this - Ron Sexsmith, Noah Mintz, Todd Clark from Pilate, and Royal Wood. It’s a change from having seven of me on backing vocals, and I think it sounds beautiful!”

    General CommentI think part of this has to do with waiting until you're married to have sex, however I really like that she got Ron Sexsmith and Todd Clark from Pilate for this. Totally rad.

    Mostly the meaning is pretty obvious... she's still looking for that right person, and when she finds him she'll know.
