Thought I was standin' tall
I thought I've seen it all
But, baby, I was wrong
'Cuz you're the greatest
I walked a thousand miles
But nothing is what I found
Until you came around
'Cuz you're the greatest

Searched high and low for love just
To find out that it was here all long
And unknowing what I wanted
I should have been chasing you

And I was reachin' for the stars
But didn't have to look so far
'Cuz love's where you are
But I didn't have a clue
And now I realize
That the stars are in your eyes
'Cuz you always shine
Baby, you're the greatest

Thought everything had changed
Until the day you came
And took away the pain
Baby, you're the greatest
I always wore a frown
I never used to smile
Until you showed me how
Baby, you're the greatest

Searched high and low for love just
To find out that it was here all long
And unknowing what I wanted
I should have been chasing you

And I was reachin' for the stars
But didn't have to look so far
'Cuz love's where you are
But I didn't have a clue
And now I realize
That the stars are in your eyes
'Cuz you always shine
Baby, you're the greatest

Reachin' for the stars then I bumped into you
And I cannot believe that I was searchin' for so long
Ooh baby, baby, I'm so taken
And all that I need is to wake up in your arms

And I was reachin' for the stars
But didn't have to look so far
'Cuz love's where you are
But I didn't have a clue
And now I realize
That the stars are in your eyes
'Cuz you always shine
Baby, you're the greatest
