Soul| meant for me

One of C and my favorite activities is to sing together. Neither one of us is very good but it makes us really happy.  Lately we have been singing some throwbacks including an embarrassing amount of Dave Matthews and basically all the songs played on Dawson's creek.  C surprised me before bed the other day by starting to play jewel's you were meant for me on his guitar.  We realized pretty quickly that we didn't know all the lyrics, so I looked them up - and they're actually pretty awesome.  My favorite line? "Consoled a cup of coffee, but it didn't want to talk".  So, for your inner middle schooler (or wherever you were in the mid 90s):

 "You Were Meant For Me"

I hear the clock, it's six 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
Wipe the spots up off 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 wanna talk

So I picked up the 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 or I was sad
And it made me miss you oh so bad 'cause


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, everyday.

I brush my teeth, I put the cap back on

I know you hate it when I leave the light on

I pick a book up and then I turn the sheets down.
And then I 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 all be alright
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight 'cause


You were meant for me, and I was meant for you.
