How can I convince you what you see is real
Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel
I was always reachin', you were just a girl I knew
I took for granted the friend I have in you

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while

Can we last forever, will we fall apart
At times it's so confusing, these questions of the heart
You followed me through changes and patiently you'd wait
Till I came to my senses through some miracle of fate

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while

Now the miles stretch out behind me
Loves that I have lost
Broken hearts lie victims of the game
Then good luck it finally struck
Like lightning from the blue
Every highway leading me back to you

Now at last I hold you, now all is said and done
The search has come full circle
Our destinies are one
So if you ever loved me
Show me that you give a damn
You'll know for certain
The man I really am

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Then I touched your hand, I could hear you whisper
The search is over, love was right before my eyes.

    I am a True Witness of Christ! I had a grand spiritual dream a few months back...I met Jesus! I looked directly into His eyes...our eyes were interlocked for several minutes! There is a story in His eyes! They literally turn and spin...they resemble flames of invisible fire...just as it is written! Upon awakening after this encounter, I heard a few lyrics of THIS SONG 'within myself' and then went to look the words up! I am pouring my aweseome testimony of God onto the entire world!

    The search for your one true love, once your search comes full circle, your true love was right in front of you all along...

    Now I look into your eyes
    I can see forever, the search is over
    You were with me all the while."
