All Around the World

Affection
pop female vocalists 80s soul 90s


All Around the World is a song by Lisa Stansfield released in late 1989 for her debut solo album, Affection. It remains her biggest hit to date. Written and produced by Stansfield, Ian Devaney and Andy Morris, the debut solo single by Stansfield became a massive international hit. It spent two weeks at #1 on the UK singles chart in November 1989 and reaching the top in 11 other countries. In January 1990, it peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 but is the second single by a white female singer to top the Billboard R&B chart after Teena Marie's "Ooo La La La" achieved this feat for the first time in 1988. The track also topped the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, and reached #7 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song was later recorded by Stansfield with popular R&B artist Barry White and featured on his compilation album, The Ultimate Collection. A music video was also filmed. This song was interpolated on the single, "Been Around the World" from the Puff Daddy album No Way Out and the version of "Girl You Know It's True" by Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch of Irish boy band Boyzone. The song was also sampled by the late R&B singer Aaliyah in "Where Could He Be" which was released in 2005. In 2006, the song was covered by Thomas Anders for his swing album, Songs Forever.

All Around the World - 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

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 so many things he never 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 a cryin', I, I, I

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

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

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

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

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, I'm gonna find him, my baby

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

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

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

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
