Lyrics are shown as they appear in the liner booklet for The Little Mermaid Greatest Hits.

I have chased a thousand sunsets
Into the twilight
I got lost along the way
Hoping for a sign

And then out of the nothing
Like a lighthouse you were there
Everything I needed
Suddenly appeared

Like a midnight star
Falling from the sky
I never thought I'd ever find it

Shining in the dark
Lighting up the night
You're the answer in the silence

I been looking for the missing piece
You're the one I need
I found the real thing

Like the water, like the air I breathe
You're apart of me
I found the real thing

You're the reason I was searching
The hope I waited for
Turned the shadows all around me
Into something more

I've uncovered the secret
Put together all the pieces
And now I'm never ever letting go


Sha la la la la la, oh eh oh
I found the real thing
You're the real thing
Sha la la la la la, oh eh oh
I found the real thing
