I've made me a fortune
(That fortune made ten)
Been headlined
And profiled
Again and again
But something was missing
(I never quite knew)
That something was someone -
But who?
My speeches are greeted
With thunderous acclaim
At two universities
Bearing my name
Yes, something was missing
Each timeI got through
That something was someone -
But who?
Who could that someone be?
How could she make it known?
Who would need me for me?
Need me for me alone?
he world was my oyster -
But where was the pearl?
Who dreamed I could find it
Yes something was missing -
But dreams can come true
That something
Is no one
But you
Who would need me for me ?
Need me for me alone
The world was my oyster
But where was the pearl ?
Who'd dream I would find it
In one little girl ?
Yes, something was missing
But dreams do come true
That something is no one.....but you.
