I could jump on some ol' highway Run a thousand miles or more Unlock some hidden mystery Behind a distant door I could sail the seven oceans Til I crawl upon some long forgotten shore
But it's always gonna be you Always gonna be you I'm lookin' for
I could climb a hundred mountains Leave a hard ol' world behind Wander right across some prairie Like a man out of his mind I could walk and stare into the sun Let it all just burn me deaf and blind But it's always gonna be you Always gonna be you I'm tryin' to find
Where does a man go for redemption Where does he take a broken heart Shouldn't there be some small exemption If he does all that it takes To admit to his mistakes Til the truth batters and breaks his world apart
I could ask for my forgiveness From the heavens high above Tell myself my prayers are gonna somehow be enough And lay down in some angels bed Convinced I've found the one I'm dreamin' of But it's always gonna be you Always gonna be you that I love.
Where does a man seek his salvation When does his mind finally go free Is the pain he feels the only explanation For believing lies are true For the stone inside his shoe The endless ways that you keep haunting me
I could find an empty church Get down on my knees Tell myself the mercy Is a matter of degrees Then lay down in some angel's arms Convinced I've found the one I'm dreamin' of But it's always gonna be you Always gonna be you that I love
