lyric help? "What are you looking for (radio edit version)"

Unread postby sicklucidpainter » 31 Jul 2013 11:04

So I've been searching online for the lyrics for the radio edit version of "What are you looking for" as the lyrics skew slightly from the original version.

Sadly after searching about 10 pages on google and the forum, I have yet to find a set of lyrics that actually add the verses in the radio version. Since some of the words are hard to understand and or I'm not confident in them 100%. Is there anyone out there that can help me out with that? It'll save me a lot of head aches haha, thank you!

I don't think I ever heard it on the radio. Do you know if there is a link or a youtube of that version? The only DUAL songs I ever hear on the local station are My World and All the Same.

I was able to locate the alternate version on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKAUPLPUsiM

I had this song playing on my spotify earlier, and some of the lyrics I wanted to just verify I had heard the words correctly. So I started searching the forum and pages of lyrics, all I found was a parade of the album version.
My friend in Holland thought I had lost my mind, until I sent her the other version. I knew I wasn't mishearing lyrics THAT bad, haha.

The radio edit starts like the album version (parts from album lyrics that are the same will be in blue and the alternate lyrics will be in pink (green if I'm shady on what the lyric actually is)

I walk the line of the disappointed
I celebrate when I'm in pain
My heart and mind can be disjointed
I built a bed in this hole I made
I recognize that I'm damaged
I sympathize that you are too
But I wanna breathe without feelin' so self-conscious
But it's hard when the world's starin' at you


You hide behind
what's inside
are you in there?


you're getting high
on the five
going no where


what are you working for
what are you searching for
love
You won't be thinking of cars when
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love

You join the line of the getting richer
You keep your pace but it's movin' slow
You are defined by all that you have hoarded
But you're surprised it doesn't fill up the hole


You hide behind
what's inside
are you in there?


you're getting high
on the five
going no where


what are you coping for
what are you hoping for
love
You won't be thinking of cars when
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love


you won't get nothing from nothing
only something from something
i can't think of a better way
to waste my time


than try
getting high on the five


are you in there?
are you in there?


You won't be thinking of cars when
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love love love love

You won't be thinkin' of cars when
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what are you workin' for,
What are you lookin' for

Wow! Great find! I think you have all the lyrics right - I didn't hear anything different. I love the heaviness on "you won't get nothing from nothing"! "What Are You Looking For" is one of my favorites, so this is pretty cool. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting that they chose to change the last line too. There's a Listen In podcast where Shim is talking about this song, and said that on one take he changed the last line to "What are you waiting for?" and that ended up being the take they used for the album.

Anyway, really really cool find. Thank you for posting it! :music:

All that you said you were shady on (the green) sounds completely right. I love this song and I've been looking for a version my parents would be fine with me blasting and I think I found it. However I do like the ending on the album version better. Its almost like Shim's asking you what YOU yourself are waiting for to do whatever. This is a fantastic find and I am so glad that you found it and decided to share it with us.


Lose your pride, lose your patience, lose your mind. But whatever the case may be, NEVER LOSE HOPE!
SMILE!!! Let everyone know you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday
Sometimes what holds you together & what tears you apart are the SAME things!

Its funny because until just 2 weeks ago I never heard the "cars" story.
Maybe they only tell it in shows or maybe it somehow slipped from my mind but when Shim said that this song was originally called "Cars" until they recorded it and decided to name it "what are you looking for" I had no idea the song actually contained the words "cars" in it.
I think I always sang it as something else and now ever since the show whenever I hear this song its like someone painted the words Cars in bold and all I can notice is that.
so strange I know :laugh:
