All my life, I've searched this whole world through
Try as I might, to find someone like you
The years drifted by, but it was always on my mind
I didn't know how long I'd go, until I ran out of time

All my life, I've hurt the ones who cared
One by one, no loving heart was spared
I've been a wild and restless man, but still a man who needs a wife
That was my dream and now it seems you've taken all my life

For as long as I could my intentions were good
I assumed my affairs would be fine
But I know very well, there's a long road to hell
That's been paved with intentions like mine

All my life, I've paid for my mistakes
After a while, the strongest spirit breaks
I've had heartache and pain, it cut me deeper than a knife
But those days are done, 'cause you're the one I've wanted all my life

And I know very well, there's a long road to hell
That's been paved with intentions like mine
All my life, my stars were surely crossed
Now and then, I missed the love I lost
But all that changed, the day you said you'd be my wife

Who could have known that finding you
Would only take me all my life
