Everyday I turn on the evening news 
And I got to tell you 
I think the whole worlds gone crazy 
Every time I am turning around someone is selling something new 
It's getting so bad 
I don't believe anything anyone tells me 
But baby you have the most honest eyes 
Maybe your the piece I'm missing in my life

I am looking for one true thing 
One true thing that I can believe in 
Searching for one real love 
All my life I have been waiting 
For one thing that's true 
Could it be you?

Seems like every time I am walking down the street 
No one even looks me in the eye 
Everyone's got an angle 
Everyone's got agendas 
And a secret to keep 
That is the one thing 
On which you can rely 
When you look at me I think I see something new 
Tell me baby, can I put my faith in you?

I am looking for one true thing 
One true thing that I can believe in 
Searching for one real love 
All my life I have been waiting 
For one thing that is true 
Could it be you?

So tell me before I go too far 
Tell me now before I give you my heart

I am looking for one real love 
All my life I have been waiting

I am looking for one true thing 
One true thing that I can believe in 
Searching for one real love 
All my life I have been waiting 
For one thing that is true 
Could it be you?

Could it be you?

“This is a rocker. Theme is finding someone you can believe in and hanging on. We did a cool treatment in the first chorus, where instead of building into an even bigger chorus, we do the opposite and drop everything out except acoustic guitar and my voice. It creates a dramatic and unexpected effect.”
