I could jump on some ol' highway
Run a thousand miles or more
Unlock some hidden mystery
Behind a distant door
I could sail the seven oceans
Til I crawl upon some long forgotten shore

But it's always gonna be you
Always gonna be you I'm lookin' for

I could climb a hundred mountains
Leave a hard ol' world behind
Wander right across some prairie
Like a man out of his mind
I could walk and stare into the sun
Let it all just burn me deaf and blind
But it's always gonna be you...
Always gonna be you I'm tryin' to find

Where does a man go for redemption
Where does he take a broken heart
Shouldn't there be some small exemption
If he does all that it takes
To admit to his mistakes
Til the truth batters and breaks his world apart

I could ask for my forgiveness
From the heavens high above
Tell myself my prayers are gonna somehow be enough
And lay down in some angels bed
Convinced I've found the one I'm dreamin' of
But it's always gonna be you...
Always gonna be you that I love.

Where does a man seek his salvation
When does his mind finally go free
Is the pain he feels the only explanation...
For believing lies are true
For the stone inside his shoe
The endless ways the years keep haunting me...

I could find an empty church
Get down on my knees
Tell myself the mercy
Is a matter of degrees
Then lay down in some angel's arms
Convinced I've found the one I'm dreamin' of
But it's always gonna be you...
Always gonna be you that I love

Always gonna be you... that I love (instrumentals)
... that I love (instrumentals)

    I think it's true for almost everyone there is always going to be that someone no matter what who is "the one". No matter where you go or what you do in life"the one" will always be in your heart.

    I thought it was about god and that, not matter what woman or "angel" he finds, he will always prefer god's love...

    A love that he let go or was taken from him and it will always be that person no matter what happens in his life

    A lost love that he will never be able to replace no matter how hard he tries. He will never love like he did with that special love.

    It is a story of a lost love and he will always regret the loss and wishes he could get her back.
