From BISH
Written by Stephen Bishop

Stephen Bishop is one of the best singer/songwriter of the past thirty years. He has written some of the most beautiful melodies ever like (academy award nominated song) “Separate Lives” and “On And On”. He has sung “It Might Be You” from “Tootsie”, has appeared on movies like “The Blues Brothers” and “Animal House” (wrote and sang the theme song from that movie too). He has written songs for Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Art Garfunkel, Phil Collins and Abba’s Frida and has released a string of precious albums since his debut with “Careless” in 1977.

On his second record, “Bish”, released in 1978, among many guests like Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Mike McDonald and Art Garfunkel, we find David Foster coloring with his piano a delicious song entitled “Looking For The Right One”. This song is all built around Foster’s performance, with lush strings and Bishop singing his heart out on his quest for the “right one”.

These two gentlemen have collaborated again in recent years when Foster produced a song called “All I Want For Christmas” that Bishop sang for a movie soundtrack.
Bishop has an official site where you can listen to some of his songs as well as purchasing his most recent works, check it out.

Lyrics

I’ve been so unlucky
I’m no good at playing games
I remember their faces
Forget their names

Thought I found the right one
But she hasn’t found me
So I bundle up my emotions and start

Looking for the right one
But will the right one ever come along
I’m looking for the right one
When will the right one come along

They say there’s no use running
After something
You’ll never get

But my heart says don’t say no
Somewhere in this lonely city
Is the woman for me
But will I wait another lifetime to keep on

CHORUS

They say love always comes and goes
Well, that I already know
Yes I really know

CHORUS
