Answer:

For example "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" by U2.

Explanation:

Here is the lyrics of 'I stll haven't found what I'm looking for' by U2:

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls, these city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoken with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found
what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found
what I'm looking for

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colours will bleed into one, bleed into one
But yes, I'm still running

You broke the bonds
You loosed the chains
You carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
