I've searched the world over all of my life
Just looking for something
To make my love shine
Like a candle that burns in the night
But I came up with nothing
Till I looked in your eyes
Deeper and deeper inside

And all of the treasures
I found in your soul
Was like finding a diamond
When you're mining for coal

I've been a fool for glitter and gold
And women that sparkle shiny and cold
