From THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES
Written by Barbra Streisand, Marvin Hamlisch, R.J. “Mutt” Lange & Bryan Adams

“I Finally Found Someone” is just one episode in the long professional partnership between Ms. Steisand and David Foster. The seventies found the super-producer first playing keyboards and arranging music on her records like “Lazy Afternoon,” “Superman,” “Songbird,” and “Wet.” In 1985, Foster produced the hit song “Somewhere” from her #1 “Broadway Album,” bringing him back to the Grammy podium for his inspired arrangement of the song. Many other productions followed including the 1993 #1 record, “Back To Broadway,” to this beautiful ballad co-written by Streisand and legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch (“The Way We Were”), pop/rock producer/songwriter John “Mutt” Lange (Shania Twain, AC/DC, Def Leppard), and Bryan Adams, another old friend of Foster’s who duets with Barbra. The Canadian superstar does a magnificent job matching Streisand’s voice with his gritty vocals and the result is smooth as silk. Foster arranged the song with help from co-writers Adams and Lange. The arrangement is classic enough for the faithful Streisand fans, but Adams’ voice and the catchy refrain give the song a contemporary twist perfect for A.C./pop radio. This soundtrack includes another track produced by Foster, “All Of My Life,” that’s good but not as interesting. Another Foster song, his beautiful rendition of “Carol Of The Bells,” was actually used in the movie but does not appear on the soundtrack.

Lyrics

I finally found someone
Who knocks me off my feet
I finally found the one
Who makes me feel complete

It started over coffee
We started off as friends
It’s funny how from simple things
The best things begin

This time it’s different,
It’s all because of you
It’s better than it’s ever been
Cause we can talk it through

My favorite line was
‘Can I call you sometime’
Its all u had to say
To take my breath away

This is it
Oh I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one
to be with every night
Cuz whatever I do
It’s just got to be you
My life has just begun
I finally found someone
Oooh someone
I finally found somone

Did I keep u waiting? (I didnt mind)
I apologize (baby that’s fine)
I will wait forever
Just to know you were mine
(Ooh) You know I love your hair
( Sure it looks right?)
I love what you wear
(Isn’t it too tight?)
You’re exceptional
I can’t wait for the rest of my life

This is it
Oh I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one
To be with every night
Cuz whatever I do
It’s just got to be you

Ohh my life has just begun
I’ve finally found someone
And whatever I do
It’s just got to be you
Ohh my life has just begun
I’ve finally found someone…
