"The Love I'm Searching For" is the first track on The Rentals debut album, Return of the Rentals.

Two early versions exist - one demo version, as heard on the Excellent Stocking Stuffer bootleg, and an 'alternate' version recorded during the For The Ladies session. Both versions contain some minor lyrical differences.

Lyrics

I don't think I'll find the love I want
The love I'm searching for in this machine, no

The system's failed, all the circuits blown
And the message lost in this machine, oh
Try all the codes, all possibilities
All combinations but, still nothing, oh

Called for backup from my assistants, but
No one seems to know anything, oh
Disconnect, shut the main reactor down
And separate from this technology, oh

I try, you know, I try, I try
Hard as it may be, I know you should be with me
Even though it seems it's all lies
I still believe, you should be with me

I try, you know, I try, I try
Hard as it may be I know you should be with me
Even though it seems it's all lies
I still believe, you should be with me
And even though it seems it's all lies
I still believe, you should be
