Many a man has gone away
Searching for the treasures of a love that's true
Cause I believe, I believe
The further you look
The less you see

Trying to track lost treasures down
Others lose hope and they have to --yes, now -- move on

You better know that
So I'm hoping you'd be the treasure meant for me
Oh oh oh oh
Wondering if they've done something wrong
But if you'll be mine, my searching is all over because now
The further you look,
The less you see

The further you look,
so I'm hoping you'd be the treasure meant for me
And I believe, I believe right now
the less you're gonna see
