Starr, Edwin - Running Back And Forth Lyrics



Oh, I'm running back and forth
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, oh yes I am
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)
I'm running, running, running
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, oh yes I am
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)

[?] this game of love is not an easy game to play
The rules get harder to understand each and every day, yeah
But love is the answer
To every one of my dreams, yes it is
(There's no stopping, there's no waiting)
I can't find it sitting around
And love, it has no in betweens
So I've got to keep on

Running, running, running
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)
Can't you see me running, running, running?
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, oh
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)

'Cause I know sooner or later
True love I've got to find
(The happy days, the happy nights)
(And memories of holding someone tight)
All these things will be mine
But until then

I'm running, running, running
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, oh yes I am
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)
I'm running, running, running
(Running back and forth)
I keep looking for love, yeah, won't somebody help me?
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)

(Cupid, draw back your bow)
(And let your arrow go)
To a heart that needs, needs love so bad
'Cause this running back and forth is about to drive me mad

I wanna stop running back and forth
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah, oh yes I am
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)
I'm running, running, running
(Running back and forth)
I keep looking for love, yeah
(Looking, looking, I keep looking)
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see, can't you see
Can't you see me running, running, running?
(Running back and forth)
I'm just looking for love, yeah
(Looking)
