Chesney’s comments about the song:

I’ve loved that song for a while. There is a certain longing in this song that in a lot of ways I really relate to. It’s about wanting something that’s obviously not there … this searching that we all have for love and lust, and someone that’s not in your life anymore. It talks about all of the measures that we go through to feel loved and to get that certain thing back that’s just driving you crazy. ‘El Cerrito Place’ has that certain insanity about it that I think is very relatable. There’s searching and longing that all of us have inside. I’ve felt every bit of emotion that the character in that song deals with.”

I been hangin’ round this place, I been lookin’ through your space I been waitin’ for you, I’ve been waitin’ for you All the places that you go, all the people that you know I’ve been lookin’ for you, I’ve been lookin’ for you

And all these pretty people up on El Cerrito Place They all got somethin’ in their pockets, all got somethin’ on their face They roll down to La Brea where it meets the boulevard Singin’ hallelujah while they dance over the stars They all say they’re goin’ far

Me I’ve been lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby I’ve been lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby All night long, all night long, all night long

Somebody said they might have seen you where the ocean meets the land So I’ve been out here all night lookin’ for your footprints in the sand Did you hear the ocean singing, baby did you sing along While you danced out in the water to some ol’ forgotten song, Were you even here at all?

Me I’ve been lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby I’ve been lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby All night long, all night long, all night long

Somehow I wound up in the desert just after daylight Where the Joshua Trees grow that little place you always liked These pioneer town people ain’t got too much to say And if you ever were here baby they ain’t givin’ you away

Now it’s been two days I’m still lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby I’ve been lookin’ for you baby, I’ve been lookin’ for you baby All night long, all night long, all night long

And all these pretty people up on El Cerrito Place They all got somethin’ in their pockets, all got somethin’ on their face

Somebody said they might have seen you where the ocean meets the land So I’ve been out here all night lookin’ for your footprints in the sand

Think I’ll go back to the city, back to El Cerrito Place That’s the last time I saw that pretty smile upon your face I’ve been lookin’ for you baby
