It might be you


In the song “It might be you” by Stephen Bishop, I am always struck by how the lyrics make the song feel so much more personal the older you get.

The more life you experience, the more you understand the value of the things he is thinking about. The weight of a dream of happiness. The strength of a wish.

It’s one of the most beautiful songs lyrically, that I have ever experienced. It will remain a firm favorite. I think this song is a poets soul set to music.

Lyrics:

Might Be You
Stephen Bishop
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
I’ve been waiting for all of my life
I’ve been waiting for all of my life
I’ve been waiting for all of my life
