Meant To Be

With butterflies I asked
So scared that you would laugh
But you smiled and just said yes
And we never looked back
 
Where’d we go wrong
Perfect moved to fast
Now we both have to move on
Cause this can’t last
 
I can’t change you, you can’t change me
And we’re not meant… to be
 
I’ve learned in my past
That not all good things last
Can’t walk this road together
When we’ve chosen different paths
 
You want someone that I’m not
But baby there’s no blame
Thought you were someone else
So I’m guilty of the same
 
But you’re not her and I’m not him
And we’re not meant… to be
 
Now I’ll shed just one more tear for you
But this’ll be my last
Cause we can only belong
To each other’s past
 
Love is tragic love is splendid
So real and I believe
That each of us is fated
Someone’s destiny
 
But this is what I’m made of
Yes this is what makes me
And I can’t go on living
Falsely in your dreams
 
And I can’t lose myself
In your fantasy
So this is my goodbye to you
Cause we’re not meant to be
