How about:It is I who knocked on the doorbutIt is me you are looking for.?But... above: misplaced preposition: Correct for is then:It is for me you are looking.After a preposition, the dative form is used.This could be that the root of 'it is me', where an archaic construct is abbreviated:'It is (given to) me (to be) who knocked on the door.This, or similar constructs can be found in Latin and Gaelic.
