Verse:
Life was a song.  You came a - long,
l've laid a - wake the whole night through.
If I but dared,  To think you cared,
This is what I'd say to you.
 
Chorus:
You Were Meant For Me,
I was meant for you.
Na - ture pat - terned you and when she was done,
You were all the sweet things rolled up in one.
You're like a plain - tive mel - o - dy,
That nev - er lets me free,
For I'm con - tent the an - gels must have sent you
And they meant you just for me.
