They say just once in life
You find someone that's right
But the world looks so confused
I can't tell false from true

And love's so hard to find
In this state of mind
Oh I hope I'll know him
I hope I'll know him
If he's ever near

Well it seemed the time had come
I thought you were the one
When I looked into your eyes
It never looked like lies

And love's so hard to see
When it's in front of me
Oh I hope I'll know it
I hope I'll know it
If it's ever near

And love's so hard to see
When it's in front of me
Oh I hope I'll know it
I hope I'll know it
If it's ever near

Well I know that in my time
I'll have it sweet and fine
But it won't add up to much
Unless I feel his touch

And love's so hard to find
So I guess I'll just give up trying
Oh I hope I'll know him
I hope I'll know him
If he's ever near
