LyricsEdit

Adapted from Metrolyics[2]

What I'm lookin' for
Is a love that's forever
Someone who can capture my soul in a heartbeat
And stay for all time
What I'm prayin' for
Is a match made in heaven
Someone who will worship my body
And still put his heart on the line

Commitment
Someone who'll go the distance
I need somebody with staying power
Who'll make me go weak in the knees
Commitment
And everything that goes with it
I need honor and love in my life from somebody
Who's playin' for keeps

What I'm searching for
Is a man who'll stand by me
Who will walk through the fire
And be my flame in the night
I won't settle for
Less than what I deserve
A friend and a lover who'll love me
For the rest of my life

Commitment
Someone who'll go the distance
I need somebody with staying power
Who'll make me go weak in the knees
Commitment
And everything that goes with it
I need honor and love in my life from somebody
Who's playin' for keeps

Yeah I've had promises broken
Three words left unspoken
They just left me achin' for more
But I'll fight temptation
I won't be impatient
There's one thing that's worth waitin' for

Commitment
Someone who'll go the distance
I need somebody with staying power
Who'll make me go weak in the knees

Commitment
And everything that goes with it
I need honor and love in my life from somebody
Who's playin' for keeps

Commitment
Someone who'll go the distance
I need somebody with staying power
Who'll make me go weak in the knees

Commitment
And everything that goes with it
I need honor and love in my life from somebody
Who's playin' for keeps
