Story Behind the Song -
At different times in our lives, we all look for “it.” For some, that “it” is most certainly love. Others don’t know what they’re searching for, but “it” will fill a void in the heart or soul. I wrote this song in October — the fall — when the summer of our memory is fading away, and things begin to die, and all we can do is watch helplessly and hopelessly through the painted wood storm windows we just put in place. I got the inspiration for this after noticing that a TV in an otherwise un-lit apartment I saw on my drive home cast a blue glow in the room. Dedicated to all those who look but just can’t ever seem to find “it.” May you someday find something to fill the void...
Song Lyrics -
He sits alone at night in the stillness of his living room,
with his lap dog on his lap and his feet up on the footstool,
and he thinks about his life to the blue hue of his TV set.
The only time he moves is to light another cigarette.
‘Sixty-eight next Monday,
but you know that he ain’t found it yet.
No, you know that he ain’t found it yet...
She sits alone at night in front of her computer screen,
with her kitten on her lap and a bowl of choc’late ice cream,
and she thinks about her life checking profiles on the Internet.
Will she meet her “Mr. Right” or do something she’ll regret?
So many would-be lovers,
but you know that she ain’t found it yet.
No, you know that she ain’t found it yet...
They sit alone at night, the same table in the restaurant.
Five-thirty every day, ‘servers know just what they want,
they don’t think about their lives as they take the daily paper out,
the kids are gone for years nothing much to talk about...
Thirty years in August,
but you know that they ain’t found it yet.
No, you know that they ain’t found it yet...
This is for all the lonely people:
The artists who ain’t found it yet...
The dreamers who ain’t found it yet...
The lovers who ain’t found it yet...
The poets who ain’t found it yet...
