Lyrics for All Around the World - Remastered by Lisa Stansfield:

I don't know where my baby is
But I'll find him, somewhere, somehow
I've got to let him know how much I care
I'll never give up looking for my baby

Been around the world and I, I, I
I can't find my baby
I don't know when, I don't know why
Why he's gone away
And I don't know where he can be, my baby
But I'm gonna find him

Verse 1
We had a quarrel and I let myself go
I said so many things, things he didn't know
And I was oh oh so bad
And I don't think he's comin' back, mm mm
He gave the reason, the reasons he should go
And he said things he hadn't said before
And he was oh oh so mad
And I don't think he's comin', comin' back

I did too much lyin', wasted too much time
Now I'm here and cryin', I, I, I


Verse 2
So open hearted
He never did me wrong
I was the one, the weakest one of all
And now I'm oh oh so sad
And I don't think he's comin' back, comin' back

Chorus 2X

I'm going to find him, my baby

Pre-Chorus + Chorus

I've been around the world, lookin' for my baby
Been around the world
And I'm gonna, I'm gonna find him

Song Facts

“All Around The World” was the second single from Lisa Stansfield’s debut album Affection. The sorrowful ballad became the British singer’s biggest hit, going #1 in at least five countries including the United States where she topped both the Dance and R&B charts. The single helped her earn nominations for Best Female Pop Vocal and Best New Artist at the 33rd Annual Grammy Awards.

“All Around The World” became etched even deeper into pop culture when the hit was interpolated by Puff Daddy, Ma$e, and the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G. on their own David Bowie-sampling hit “Been Around The World.”
