Stephen Bishop – It Might Be You lyrics
Time... I've been passing time watching trains go by
All of my life...
Lying on the sand, watching seabirds fly
Wishing there would be
Someone waiting home for me

Something's telling me it might be you
It's telling me it might be you...
All of my life...

Looking back as lovers go walking past...
All of my life
Wondering how they met and what makes it last
If I found the place
Would I recognize the face?

Something's telling me it might be you
Yeah, it's telling me it might be you

So many quiet walks to take
So many dreams to wake
And we've so much love to make

I think we're gonna need some time
Maybe all we need is time...
And it's telling me it might be you
All of my life...

I've been saving love songs and lullabies
And there's so much more
No one's ever heard before...

Something's telling me it might be you
Yeah, it's telling me it must be you
And I'm feeling it'll just be you
All of my life...

It's you..
It's you...
I've been waiting for all of my life...

Maybe it's you...
Maybe it's you...
I've been waiting for all of my life...

Maybe it's you...
Maybe it's you...
I've been waiting for all of my life

Repeat to fade...

    This song relates to me. I waited for years to find my "the one". And when I finally met him and been together for a year, I could say that we were truly in love like in a fairytale. I said to myself that he is "the one" I had waited for. Then I dedicated this song to him which he find it good. After more than 2yrs of being in love, I ended up our relationship because of a mistake he had done. At that moment, I don't know what to do but to cry. He want to stay with me despite of what he had done because he really loves me. He begged many times but I refuse, instead I decided to leave his memories and stay away from him as in out of communication. After a month since we broke up, I heard from a friend that my ex killed himself. His family and friends told me that he was depressed of losing me that's why he rather chose to die than with someone else. They don't blame me but to myself it should be me whom to blame of. Now after 6yrs., the feeling is still here. Every time I hear this song, I remember him then my tears fall. He was my first love. I am his true love and I heard this from him. I still feel his presence sometimes. Believe this or not, my phone beeps a text message and it was from him. Until up there, he still loves me. How I wish I could reply by saying I already forgave you.

    The song is theme song of the 1982 comedy movie "Tootsie" starring Dustin Hoffman, Bill Murray and Jessica Lange ... It's a song that sums up what it is to fall in love with the only one you'd ever want and who is the love of your life ... For me the song is about someone special named Josh ... We were both in our late 20's when we met and we began to date ... Then a year later I asked him if he would like to marry? He said yes and we were married with not much fuss about it with us both in top hats and suits ... The reception had some violinists and saxophonist to play some songs and during the reception Josh had a surprise as he had arranged to sing a song specially for me with the violins playing and the saxophonist and he sang "It Might Be You" ... The marriage was a happy one with the ups and downs of life ... Then 15 years later I had a call at work that he was injured in a road accident and he was critical ... I rushed to the hospital and on arrival I was told he had died during a surgery in an attempt to save his life ... I never had that chance to tell him how he made my life happy even though he knew ... 10 years on and I still don't want or look for anyone else as I'd rather be on my own ... Whenever I hear the song "It Might Be You" it reminds me that there was a time in my life that I found the love of my life and lost them ... If you have found the love of your life and they are your world then never let a day go without telling them it ... A broken heart never heals if you lose the love of your life but it is better to have loved and lost than not found the love of your life at all, but Josh left me with a beautiful song to remember him as it's a classic romantic song and timeless.
