This song is in the key of F.
Life was a song. You came along,
l've laid awake the whole night through.
If I but dared, To think you cared,
This is what I'd say to you.
You Were Meant For Me,
I was meant for you.
Nature patterned you and when she was done,
You were all the sweet things rolled up in one.
You're like a plaintive melody,
That never lets me free,
For I'm content the angels must have sent you,
And they meant you just for me.
