"The Search Is Over" as written by and James M/sullivan Peterik....
How can I convince you what you see is real
Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel
I was always reachin', you were just a girl I knew
I took for granted the friend I have in you

I was living for a dream,
Loving for a moment
Taking on the world,
That was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever,
The search is over
You were with me all the while

Can we last forever, will we fall apart
At times it's so confusing, these questions of the heart
You followed me through changes, and patiently you'd wait
Till I came to my senses, through some miracle of fate

I was living for a dream,
Loving for a moment
Taking on the world,
That was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever,
The search is over
You were with me all the while

Now the miles stretch out behind me loves that I have lost

Broken hearts lie victims of the game
Then good luck it finally stuck like lightning from the blue
Every highway leading me back to you
Now at last I hold you, now all is said and done
The search has come full circle, our destinies are one
So if you ever loved me show me that you give a damn
You'll know for certain the man I really am

I was living for a dream,
Loving for a moment
Taking on the world,
That was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever,
The search is over
You were with me all the while

    General CommentThis song opened my eyes about Survivor. They're so much more than just Eye of the Tiger. One of my favorite love songs and something I have to sing whenever it comes on.

    General CommentI think this is a great power ballad. Singer Jim Jamison's voice really stands out on this one.

    General CommentThis was the first song I ever slow-danced to when I was 13. I still love it.
    Isn't the line, "good luck it finally struck like lightning from the blue?"

    My InterpretationEven though this was made in the 80s, way before 1992, I think it was prophetic of a future TV show starring a man searching for the truth with a woman who was the truth all along.
