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

Looked for love in all the wrong places
I've searched the moon and 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
And I don't wanna lie and pretend I'm someone else
I'm just looking 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

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
Someone to love me

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

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
Someone to love me

You know I've been all around the world
Trying to find someone new
Ha, you know what ended up 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 send you from above, oh girl, it's only you
You're the best thing in my life girl
You're the best thing in my life oh, oh girl
[Incomprehensible]
