Many a man has gone away
Many a man has gone astray
Searching for the treasures of a love that's true
I'm hoping that my treasure can be you
Cause I believe, I believe

The further you look
Show love now
The less you see
I'm hoping you'd be the treasure meant for me

I've seen men carry their hopes from town to town
Trying to track lost treasures down
Some find true love before their hopes are gone
Others lose hope and they have to --yes, now -- move on
