MEANT TO BE - KYLE LEDSON


Woke up with sweat on my neck

Not knowing where I'm gonna go

No lights inside but city lights

Outside the window

If I just get a hold of the old me

Or maybe just get used to a new me

Something is blocking me out from where I’m trying to go


Escape from the passage in the back of the room where I gotta be

I don't recognize any of the strangers staring back at me

Maybe I should just turn back and run, come to terms with what I’ve done

But my eyes are telling me I've got to go to sleep


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


I had no reason to suck it up and stay

You never had the ears to listen to what I had to say

A light shined bright in my own two hands

Then it flew away didn't give me a chance

I'm outta my mind on the left side of the highway


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory

Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be


I was lost in a cloud lost in a place lost in a time

Where people never thought to think and left it up to a puppeteer's mind

And while this guy was pulling the strings

He tugged the end of my arm and pulled me into a dream

And when I woke up I still didn't know what I had to find


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be

Can't you see the real me I'm free

I'm trapped inside a memory


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be


Because baby I'm not where I'm meant to be, be, be, be, be
