about

After my divorce and selling the house I moved back in with my folks for a while to get my bearings. Like at other low points in my life I wrote in a journal now and then to try and exorcise the hurt and pain I was feeling.

Needless to say I was feeling down and love seemed elusive at best. This song started out as a note to myself- an attempt to counter the hopelessness with some kind of optimism that the love I was looking for was still out there.

lyrics

Haven’t Met You Yet - Perry Gladstone 2003

Out on the streets I can feel you near
I think I see, I think I hear
A passing glimpse, a shout afar
Was it you I saw in the back of that car

I smile at you each chance I get
A pretty face, a friendly chat
Can’t take the chance of passing you by
You’re all I want, you’re my whole life

Chorus:
It’s been so long since we got along but I haven’t met you yet
I cried so long about all my wrongs but I haven’t met you yet
I’d do it all, if you’d just call but I haven’t met you yet
Its clear to me our destiny and I haven’t even met you yet

Your a redhead, blonde, brunette and bronzed
Olive, ivory or ebony
Your Asian eyes, make me sigh
You’re a perfect island beauty

I’ve spoken your name over’n’over again
It only makes me messy
Won’t let you go, ‘cause all I know
Is that I’m still here and waiting

Chorus
