It's About Time
So I got inspired by a nice long conversation I had today with couple of friends, and I got into the mood to blog down one of the wisest songs I've ever heard on the subject. I like it because it's light and hopeful, and gives the subject the most frank yet un-jaded treatment I've seen in a while.
I guess in many ways this is for all the singles who have been subject to many well-wishing friends entreating us to do something about our love lives, while we all know it's not that we don't want it, but it's just not coming. And we know better than to rush it. Don't get bitter, dears.
"It's About Time"
-- Jamie Cullum
Walking down to the water's edge where I have been before.
If I don't find my love sometime, I'm walking out that door.
Some may come and some may go but no one seems to be the person I've been searching for, the one who's meant for me.
Biding my time, trying to find a heart that's lonely.
Looking for her, my love my one and only.
Maybe I'll dream, tonight, about the girl who'll be coming my way.
So I'll take this chance and celebrate the day...
When I'm making my way through an open door, I've got some love and so much more and I'm ready to make someone mine.
Making my way through an open door, I've got some love and so much more and I'll find her, 'cos it's about time.
You try too hard and it feels just like you're running on thin air.
Why does luck happen by surprise if you don't really care?
The past is gone, the flames are out from fires that have burned.
New ideals and different thoughts from lessons I have learned.
Got the feeling this could take a pretty long while - to find that smile.
Put my faith in another piece of good advice - well, I tried that twice.
Waiting for, a little something more, to inspire, take me higher...
And I'm ready to make someone mine.
I'm making my way through an open door, I've got some love and so much more and I'll find her, 'cos it's about time.
It's about time.
