I've been lookin' for a love
Someone to hold as I lay sleeping
I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping up
I'm just looking for a love to stand the test of time
I've been lookin' for someone to be all mine

I had too much lonely
I need a one and only
Someone I can care about and call my own
Well in true tradition
Without an intermission
We'll still be together when the kids are grown.

I've been lookin for a love
Someone to hold as I lay sleeping
I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping up
I'm just lookin' for a love to stand the test of time
I've been looking for someone to be all mine.

(instrumental break)

I've been lookin for a love
Someone to hold as I lay sleeping
I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping up
I' m just looking for a love to stand the test of time
I've been looking for someone to be all mine.

I've been looking for some one to be all mine.
I've been looking for some one to be all mine.
I've been looking for some one to be all mine.

I've been lookin for a love
Someone to hold as I lay sleeping
I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping up
I' m just looking for a love to stand the test of time
I've been looking for someone to be all mine.
