You Were Meant for Me
by Jewel



I hear the clock, it's 6 a.m.
I feel so far from where I've been
I got my eggs, I got my pancakes too
I 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
I 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

I called my momma, she was out for a walk
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't want to talk
So I 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
I 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 '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

I 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

I 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, and turn the sheets down
And 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 '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

You were meant for me and I was meant for you
