"Love Story vs Finally" as written by Herb Bermann, Don Van Vliet, Gerald V Casale, Mark Allen Mothersbaugh, Oscar Brown, Norman Curtis and Matthew / Benjamin....
Time marches on never ending
time keeps its own time
here we stand at beginning
and then goes passing us by
and I, I, I can dream for us all
I hope I'm in a better state
when here and now crumbles and falls
and you, you, you who make worlds collide
I knew you'd come knocking one day
unannounced like a thief in the night.

So tell me how do you do
finally I meet you
you don't know what I've been through
waiting and wondering about you

I had a dream my trip would end up at you
and now I know paradise.

Tomorrow, tomorrow,
tomorrow means nothing at all
If we don't hear the line
when today places it's call
and morning, morning, morning won't ever be the same
now I won't make the same mistakes
time and time again...

So tell me how do you do
finally I meet you
you don't know what I've been through
waiting and wondering about you...

    General CommentIf you read the lyrics, to me it's about death, and facing up to the fact that its time to depart the world and meet the maker. For example

    the lyrics-
    'Time marches on never ending
    time keeps its own time
    here we stand at beginning' means time continues regardless and will continue even after death takes us and it is possible that we go back to the beginning at the end of our existence.

    The lyrics-
    'Tomorrow, tomorrow,
    tomorrow means nothing at all
    If we don't hear the line
    when today places it's call' means that there is no tomorrow for the departed after death takes us.

    The lyrics -
    'So tell me how do you do
    finally I meet you
    you don't know what I've been through
    waiting and wondering about you... ' mean like a greeting to death 'how do you do' and all our lives we wonder what it will be like when we die.

    The lyrics -
    'I knew you'd come knocking one day
    unannounced like a thief in the night.' Mean we know it will happen sooner or later that death will steal us.
    Just my interpretation :)

    General Commentgreat great song, and 'i got soul' you're right about it never getting old. so what of intepretation though? and old (now late) friend and i spent many hours kicking around whether it was about meeting your maker or about meeting the love of you life. i reckon both fit perfectly. run them through whilst listening... I did once manage to find an interview with the writer where the question was asked as it was driving us to distraction, but there was the usual mildly irritating "it means whatever you want it to" response. come on, you wrote it, you KNOW what it meant to you when you put pen to paper!!!
