Straight ahead 80 bars in D minor, 4/4, 100 BPM. Rough mix is just my MIDI piano queue track and chord progressions for deconstruction purposes.

I Wasn’t Looking

I wasn’t looking for a partner in crime, or even a friend;
[I] wasn’t hunting for a band of brothers to stand beside me at the bitter end;
[I] wasn’t hoping for a father confessor to tell my deepest, darkest secret to;
and I sure wasn’t looking for any romance when I found you.

I was sitting by myself, I had finished my drink, I figured it was time to go…
when you walked in just as I stood up and everything started to slow….
I froze for a second as I told myself I had everything under control.
Then you looked straight at me, and blew me a kiss…and walked off with my soul.

Now I’ve never believed in El Dorado or that rainbows lead to gold.
And I don’t go flirtin’ with the man behind the curtain who says Fortune favors the bold.
I don’t go barging out for windmills to battle or charging after dragons to slay.
But that one little kiss you blew to me blew all my common sense away.

And now I’m living in a world of magic, potions, incantations, and spells.
I’m crossing my fingers, tossing salt over my shoulder and coins into wishing wells.
I wake up in the night like my fever’s just broken. I jump when the clock strikes ten.
‘cause now that I’m looking, I’m scared to death that I’m never going to find you again.

I’m not looking for a partner in crime, or even a friend;
I’m not hunting for a band of brothers to stand beside me at the bitter end;
I’m not even hoping for a father confessor to tell my deepest, darkest secrets to;
I’m not going looking for anything at all until I’ve found you.
