I'm not lookin'
for something different
for something "better"
as if it even exists
I'm not lookin'
for greener pastures
or youth recaptured
what kind of nonsense is this?

People runnin' from
One to another
Go undercover
To rediscover their bliss
Any bagel fits
Any banana, nut
That ain't nirvana
What kind of nonsense is this?

Ain't got no land
Ain't got no cheddar
Ain't Eddie Vedder
Could you find better than this?
I guess you could
If you want riches, but
That ain't what rich is
What kind of nonsense is this?

Baby you and I make perfect sense
When you weigh all of the circumstantial evidence
In the present and the future tense
You're my one and only
One and only
One and only
One and only one

So worry not
About tomorrow
'Cause Cupid's arrow
Definitely didn't miss
I'm not lookin'
For something different
That would be ignorant
What kind of nonsense is this?
