haven’t met you yet

My current favorite song is “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Bublé. I love the music, and just hearing the piano chords in the intro brings a smile to my face. (Seriously. I light up and get all giddy.) The lyrics are probably meant to describe someone searching for his one true love (in a romantic sense), but to me (and thanks in part to Christine, who used this song in a special video celebrating the anniversary of Spencer’s referral), I hear it as someone searching for any type of special love. Perhaps it’s the love of a child halfway around the world. I feel that this song is so applicable to our situation, as we wait for our child. It makes me hopeful, and keeps me smiling.

*****

I’m not surprised, not everything lasts
I’ve broken my heart so many times, I stopped keeping track
Talk myself in, I talk myself out
I get all worked up, then I let myself down

I tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought, I thought of every possibility

And I know someday that it’ll all turn out
You’ll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, that I give so much more than I get
I just haven’t met you yet

I might have to wait, I’ll never give up
I guess it’s half timing, and the other half’s luck
Wherever you are, whenever it’s right
You’ll come out of nowhere and into my life

And I know that we can be so amazing
And, baby, your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility

And somehow I know that it’ll all turn out
You’ll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, I give so much more than I get
I just haven’t met you yet

They say all’s fair
In love and war
But I won’t need to fight it
We’ll get it right and we’ll be united

And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility

And someday I know it’ll all turn out
And I’ll work to work it out
Promise you, kid, I’ll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get

Oh, you know it’ll all turn out
And you’ll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid to give so much more than I get
Yeah, I just haven’t met you yet

I just haven’t met you yet
Oh, promise you, kid
To give so much more than I get

I said love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
(I just haven’t met you yet)
Love, love, love, love
Love, love
I just haven’t met you yet

  1. I confess – every time I hear this song on the radio, I think of Spencer 🙂 It does fit quite well for us APs, eh?

    Perfect. I love Michael Buble.
    Great words for waiting families…all of us have been there or are there right now.
    I cannot wait for you to meet your child.

    You know I [heart] this song right alongside of you. And I think we all need to petition M.B. to make it an official “waiting” song…

    I’m loving this song lately too and it is perfect for AP’s. Little did MB know that we would ‘adopt’ it as our own!

    We saw Micheal Buble perform this on Saturday Night Live! My husband liked it so much he immediately started learning how to play it! Yes, it’s a great song; I love how music can have such an effect!
