Not Meant To Be Me

Nothing left of myself but the cold and empty shoulder
This is exactly what I thought it would be
Nothing remains but the notion of what once breathed life
The desperation of it all surrounds me

There are no lights to guide my way
No songs that bring me back to a memory
Only the pain and ache that take me in whole
A reminder of all that I thought would be

Say that you want me
Say that you need me
I believe it for the first time
I believe it once again
But we both know it's not meant to be
It's not meant to be me

I run circles around the life you thought you'd need
But that left me in the dark, and way off key
You smile at the desperation I feel
Abandoning my thoughts endlessly

I sing your praises, cry for the love I know
Tossing and turning in the bed we share
Dreams encircle me and keep me warm
Until the very moment I become aware

Inside of you, inside of me
The ins, the outs, we cannot be
I believe it for the first time
I believe it once again
But we both know it's not meant to be
It's not meant to be me

The cold that wraps around me
Leads me to believe
That the love was never there
You've always been ready to leave

The smoke that fills my damaged heart
Blinds my way, keeps me from the truth
Nowhere left to look, no words left to speak
No way around the wall I have run into

It isn't right, it isn't so
There's nowhere else for this to go
I believe it for the first time
I believe it once again
But we both know it's not meant to be
It's not meant to be me
