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
