I Wasn't Looking For You

lyrics

when i left my home in the valley, i left everything that i knew. i lost my way through the wicked and strange while i wasn't looking for you. only time knew that i'd be here, feeling the summer breeze in the fall. i dropped to my knees like the densest of leaves while i wasn't looking for you. my heart's a carousel, yours is a silver bell. both hold an enchanted tune. that sings like a lullaby, chills like an autumn night. leaves us refreshed and renewed. you were a light i never thought that i'd find. ‘cus i wasn't looking for you. i struggled to find resolution, the weight was unbearably cruel. i trudged along singing simpler songs while i wasn't looking for you. if i could forgive the faults of my childhood, i'd never gasp at the salted beach air. but the sting in my eyes it was never a surprise while i wasn't looking for you. this here's a chapter, it's not ever after. but someday it will turn into. a handwritten history book, well placed upon a shelf. gracing the entire room. you were a light i never thought that i'd find. ‘cus i wasn't looking for you
