    you turn the corner and there it is,
    right before your eyes.
    somethingyou've been looking for,
    "here i am," it cries.
    you've searched and searched throughout your life,
    but never seemed to find,
    this elusive little critter who,
    is always on your mind.
    you cannot live without it,
    if you think you can you're wrong.
    you may resist for just a while,
    but not for very long.
    it's here, it's there, it's everywhere,
    but not easy to obtain.
    it peeks around the corner,
    then it's gone again.
    don't despair, it will return,
    as sure as the stars above.
    you'll turn around and there it is,
    you'll find yourself in love
