"I Didn't Know I Was Looking For Love" as written by Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn....
I was alone thinkin' I was just fine
I wasn't lookin' for anyone to be mine
I thought love was just a fabrication
A train that wouldn't stop at my station

Home, alone, that was my consignment
Solitary confinement
So when we met I was getting around you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you honey
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love

Cuz there you stood and I would
Oh I wonder could I say what I felt
And not be misunderstood
A thousand stars came into my system
I never knew how much I had missed them

Slap on my map of my heart you landed
I was coy but you made me candid
And now the planets circle around you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love

So we build from here with love the foundation
In a world with tears one consolation
Now you're here there's a full brass band
Playin' in me like a wonderland
And if you left I would be two-foot small
And every tear would be a waterfall
Soundless boundless I surround you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I just didn't know

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love (I just didn't know)
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love

Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

    General Commentthere is no love for theres cold hands, no love for this cracked smile. she is nowhere to be found. there is nothing, just emptiness, eternal rest...
