Babyface Ordinary Girl Lyrics

Last updated:

written by Lionel Richie, Babyface (1996)
performed by Lionel Richie

How will I know when someone loves me
How will I know if there's no one else
I'm dyin' to have someone who'll love me
But I want them to love me for myself

I looked for love in all the wrong places
I searched the moon and the stars
Found myself lost in a world of faces
The place I didn't look was my heart

I've been all around the world
Trying to find something new
Lord knows that something was you
'Cause I found in myself
The one thing that's true
All I want is an ordinary girl
All I need is an ordinary girl

I just want someone I can talk to
Someone I can lean on now and then
I don't wanna lie, and pretend I'm someone else
I'm just lookin' for a friend

My heart was going through so many changes
I didn't know which way to turn
Just when I thought I had all of the answers
I found I still had so much to learn

HOOK

I just want to feel lost in love forever
I want to see that look in your eyes
I hope that you'll understand what I'm saying, baby
'Cause girl, I need you right by my side

HOOK

Someone to love me

SPOKEN:
You know I've been all around the world
Trying to find someone new
You know at the end of my search
That someone was you
And I found in my heart
There can be no one but you

All I need is an ordinary girl

Your love my love
You know heaven sent you from above
Ordinary girl
You're the best thing in my life
Oh, oh girl
