"Nice to Meet You" as written by and Joseph A./carroll Secchiaroli....
There comes a time
When you make up your mind
Of where to lay your lonely roots down
And I've been travelin' so far and wide
Seen the deepest depths and heights beyond high
So I'm surprised to see you with my eyes
With my mind's best dreams and left your face so incomplete

It's nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
It's nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
Nice to meet you

I know the day that I chased you away
When the words I spoke, were terribly wrong
And I confess that I made quite the mess
But it's just too late, and now you've moved on

Take me back to the days of the sun
Brightly shining down on the two of us
You used to lie I staring into the sky
Leaving every toil, and worry so far behind us

It's nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
It's nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
Nice to meet you

So now I pack my bags again
After all this time we've spent
To walk the earth without you by my side
All the fields and hills I've roamed
Have never felt like home
And how I wish that you'd never left
But it's just too late now

    General CommentAccording to the booklet:

    NICE TO MEET YOU

    There comes a time when you make up your mind
    Oh where to lay your lonely roots down.
    And I've been traveling so far and wide
    Seen the deepest depths and heights beyond high
    So I'm surprised to see you with my eyes
    When my mind's best dreams
    Had left your face so incomplete.

    It's nice to meet you

    And oh, the day that I chased you away
    When the words I spoke were terribly wrong
    And I confess that I made quite the mess
    But it's just too late and now you've moved on
    Take me back to the days of the sun
    Brightly shining down on the two of us
    We used to lie staring into the sky
    Leaving every toil and worry so far behind us.

    It was nice to meet you

    So now I pack my bags again
    With all this time to spend
    To walk the earth without you by my side
    All the fields and hills I roam
    Will never feel like home
    And how I wish that you'd never left
    But it's just too late now.

    Song MeaningThis song describes a relationship: the inception, the breakup and the loss.

    I think the beginning is especially beautiful when he says,

    “So I'm surprised to see you with my eyes
    When my mind's best dreams
    Had left your face so incomplete.”

    It perfectly describes that question we sometimes ask ourselves when we meet someone new: “Could THIS be the man/woman of my dreams, the one that I spend the rest of my life with?”

    Heartbroken words end the song along with an unresolved, dissonant final chord... brilliant.
