MEANT TO BE

IT ISN’T RIGHT IT ISN’T REAL
IT ISN'T REALLY WHAT I FEEL
BUT SOMEHOW YOU IMAGINED
WHAT INSIDE OF ME COULD HAPPEN
AND WAS WRAPPED AROUND THE PASSION TO BE FREE
YOU AND I WERE MEANT TO BE

IT WASN'T SWEET, IT WASN'T FAIR
WHEN YOU WENT SWIMMING IN MY HAIR
BUT YOU ENDED THE HUMDRUM
AND YOU ANSWERED MY CONUNDRUM
AND HOW TO LIVE A LIFE OF ECSTASY
YOU AND I WERE MEANT TO BE

ON THE SUMMER WIND I'M DANCING
I AM IN YOUR ARMS AND I AM FREE
SUDDENLY I SEE YOU GLANCING
AND I FEEL YOUR HEART REACH OUT TO ME

I'M NOT AFRAID, I'M NOT A CHILD
AND NOW THIS FEELING'S RUNNING WILD
BUT YOU OPENED PANDORA
AND I PRAY TO GOD THAT YOU'RE A MAN
WHO'S NOT AFRAID OF RAMPANT MYSTERY
YOU AND I WERE MEANT TO BE

OH YOU BROUGHT BACK A MEMORY
OF HOW KIND A MAN COULD THEN BE
WHEN A WOMAN GIVES HERSELF SO TOTALLY
YOU AND I WERE MEANT TO BE

COMMENT:
One of my favorite love songs.
I have a plan to rewrite it so a man can sing it.
Maybe my friend and lovely voice coach, Michael Goodrich.
He once asked me for a male version.

More from that wonderful list of things I’m finally ready to do.
