I was a slick Midwestern gal
On the long hard road into Southern Cal
Didn't find any crime 
In filling up all my time
I had the devil in my bones
And an angel on my mind
And I drank up all the movies
And I searched for happy endings
I turned love inside out 
Till I was perfectly pretending
Still I believed it could be true

When you find the one
There's no questioning the silence
All is said and done
When you find the one
When you find the one

You could say that I was crazy
I was that kind of girl
I had to open up a lot of oysters
Before I found myself a pearl 
I had to kiss a lot of frogs
To find my grass was green enough
Had to be face down in the gutter
To see what is and isn't love
Then I woke from all the dreaming
To your taste and to your laughter
I cried till I was dry
And now I live my ever after
I believed I always knew

When you find the one
There's no questioning the silence
All is said and done
When you find the one
And when you make the choice
To believe in your existence
With hello you will know
When you find the one

I believed it could be true
I believe I always knew
