You Were Meant for Me

Performances (769)

I hear the clock, it's 6am 
I feel so far away from where I've been 
Got my eggs, and my pancakes too 
Got my maple syrup, everything but you 
I break the yolks and make a smiley face 
I kinda like it in my brand new place 
I wipe the spots off of the mirror 
Don't leave the keys in the door 
Never put wet towels on the floor anymore 'cause

Dreams last so long 
Even after you're gone 
I know, that you love me 
And soon you will see 
You were meant for me 
And I was meant for you

Called my momma, she was out for a walk 
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk 
Picked up a paper, it was more bad news 
More hearts being broken or people being used 
Put on my coat in the pouring rain 
Saw a movie it just wasn't the same 
'Cause it was happy and I was sad 
It made me miss you oh so bad

Dreams last so long 
Even after you're gone 
I know, that you love me 
And soon you will see 
You were meant for me 
And I was meant for you

Go about my business, I'm doing fine 
Besides, what would I say if I had you on the line 
Same old story, not much to say 
Hearts are broken every day

Brush my teeth and put the cap back on 
I know you hate it when I leave the light on 
I pick up a book, Turn the sheets down 
Take a deep breath and a good look around

Put on my pj's and hop into bed 
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead 
I try and tell myself it'll be all right 
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight

Dreams last so long 
Even after you're gone 
I know, that you love me 
And soon you will see 
You were meant for me 
And I was meant for you 
Yeah, you were meant for me 
And I was meant for you
