What I've Been Looking For is third song heard in the movie High School Musical and on the movie soundtrack. It's also the song that Sharpay and Ryan sing for their audition for the musical Twinkle Towne.

High School Musical

The song was originally intended to be slower, but Sharpay and Ryan made it faster and added Broadway type choreography. This song is about never knowing what is right there next to you.

What I've Been Looking For

What I've Been Looking For

Lyrics

Ryan:
It's hard to believe
That I couldn't see

Ryan and Sharpay:
You were always there beside me
Thought I was alone
With no one to hold
But you were always right beside me

Sharpay:
This feeling's like no other

Ryan and Sharpay:
I want you to know
I've never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
I've never had someone
As good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before
I finally found
What I've been looking for

Sharpay:
So good to be seen
So good to be heard

Ryan and Sharpay:
Don't have to say a word

Ryan:
For so long I was lost
So good to be found

Ryan and Sharpay:
I'm loving having you around

Ryan:
This feeling's like no other

Ryan and Sharpay:
I want you to know
That I've never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
I've never had someone
As good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before
I finally found
What I've been looking for

Do-do-do
Doot-do-do-do-doot-do
Oh-woah-oh-oh-ohoh
Doot-do-do-do
Doot-do-do-do-doot-do
Oh-woah-oh-oh-ohoh
