  • 4 I Didn't Know I Was Looking for Love (demo)
  • I was sixteen when the story began
    And you used to say come as soon as you can
    And I'd leave right away with the stars up above
    The karma stoped and I was in love


    And I'd come straight back to you
    At the sound of your name
    Straight back to you
    To see you again
    And you'd leave me alive
    And I'd find my way
    Straight back to you stay…

    When I was eighteen
    There's the story unfolds
    And I moved away though the house was unsold
    And the day that I left, you gave me a ring
    We were engaged but it meant something

    For I'd have gone straight back to you
    If I felt that I could
    Straight back to you
    To your neighborhood
    And you'd leave me alive
    And I'd find my way
    Straight back to you stay…

    When I was twenty things gradually turned bad
    And I should have left then and I wish that I had
    But you said to yourself that things will improve
    And they never do and it's then that you lose

    For I'd have gone straight back to you
    If I thought things would change
    Straight back to you
    The past you exchanged
    And you'd leave me alive
    And I'd find my way
    Straight back to you stay…

    When I turned twenty-one things came to an end
    And you live with someone who was once just a friend
    And before I left I did one last thing
    I came to your house and brought out the ring

    And gave it straight back to you
    Though I felt no remorse
    Straight back to you
    And then love ran its course
    And you left me alive
    And I found my way

    Straight out of there and your way
    Straight out of there and your way
