"What I've Been Looking For" is a song heard in from the Disney Channel movie High School Musical. The song was originally intended to be slower, but Sharpay and Ryan Evans give it a faster beat and add Broadway type choreography. Later, after Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez meet the songwriter, Kelsi Nielsen, she shows them how it is actually supposed to sound, with the two students' vocally accompaniment convincing the initially reluctant Mrs. Darbus to give them a call back

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

Troy:
It's hard to believe
That I couldn't see
You were always there beside me

Gabriella:
Thought I was alone
With no one to hold

Troy and Gabriella:
But you were always right beside me

This feeling's like no other
I want you to know

That I've never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
And 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

Gabriella:
Ooh...
