  • I've been looking for a place that I know well
    It's a long long way from here and when I get there
    I will tell, I will tell
    I've been looking for a time that I once knew
    I could spend some happy hours just being there with you
    It doesn't matter where you go
    As long as there is someone there you know

    So if you need a friend you can depend on me
    'Cause I know what it feels to be alone
    And in the darkest night you need a light to see
    Your shadow's sinking low
    Just like a stone
    Feels like a broken bone
    Guess I'll go on home

    I've been looking for someone I know so well
    She's a long long way from me and when I find her
    I will tell her
    It doesn't matter where she goes
    As long as there is someone there she knows
