The Real Thing Lyrics

by Terri Clark

I've been looking for a way to fill this empty place
With everything from poetry to love in cyberspace
I contemplate my future, I analyze my past
I twist myself up like a pretzel in my yoga class
I find attraction in small distractions

It's a piece that I've been missing
A voice when I really listen
A groove that's gonna make me sing
A feeling only love can bring
I'm ready for the real thing

Meditating, medicating, looking for a fix
Now I'm getting to the bottom of my bag of tricks
Trying to catch a break with each ticking of the clock
Searching for the prize inside my cracker jack box
Something to save me from all this waiting

It's a piece that I've been missing
A voice when I really listen
A groove that's gonna make me sing
A feeling only love can bring
I'm ready for the real thing

I've looked around and I've discovered
Nothing can touch me like a lover

It's a piece that I've been missing
A voice when I really listen
A groove that's gonna make me sing
A feeling only love can bring
I'm ready for the real thing

I'm ready for the real thing
(Real thing)
For the real thing
(Real thing)
