Thursday Live: "Haven't Met You Yet"

Okay... I admit. Sometimes when the rest of the world goes nuts over something, I tend to drag my feet a little. I guess I'd rather be a shepherd than a sheep. I mean, I still have yet to pick up a Twilight book. I heard all the rage about Michael Bublé about a year ago and brushed it off. Then I heard this song. Finally, I listened to the lyrics one day in the car, and tho a "happy, hope-filled song", I cried. I decided I needed it for the ol' iPod. The thing I love about Canadian-born Bublé, is that he is "self-made". He wanted to sing like Bing Crosby since he was little and as he grew, working as a salmon fisherman with his father, he saved his own money and financed his own first jazz album. He was discovered while singing for a private birthday party, and then hired for little singing roles here and there in movies. Okay, enough of the bio. Let's not forget that in spite of his quirky "white-boy" dance moves, he is rather dreamy to look at. Yeah... I could kiss those lips... hmmm.... melty.

The official music video if off limits for (legal) blog posting, but here is his live performance of the song I love most on Oprah. Lyrics are posted below...enjoy!



I'm not surprised.
Not everything lasts.
I've broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
I 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'll give so much more than I get.
I just haven't met you yet.

Mmmm...

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.

Mmmm...

But someday I know that it'll all turn out.
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.
And I promise you, kid, that I'll 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, mmmm.

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.

Ohhh!

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, that I'll give so much more than I get.
I just haven't met you yet.

I just haven't met you yet.

I don't know if you saw when Michael Buble was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, but he was part of a sketch with the host Jon Hamm. They had a restaurant called Hamm & Buble where they sold ham and champagne. Michael acts like he's being held captive in the restaurant. Anyway, he sings different jingles to the tune of this song.
