I Never Meant To Be

by Tiffany Layne

Sometimes it’s like the world
Is crashing down on me
Everything I do
makes me want to scream
And I swear that’s not the woman
I ever meant to be…

Sometimes it’s like nothing
I need to do is done
I’m always on the run
But I never seem to get there
And I swear that’s not the woman
I ever meant to be.

I keep asking myself
If I have anything left
I’ve given my all
Until my all ran out on me
Now the only thing I see
In the reflection is a woman
I never meant to be.

Sometimes I want to stand up,
I think I could start again.
If only I could find a friend
That understood me
But I don’t even know this woman
I never meant to be

Throw it all in the back of the car
Just see how far
A tank of gas can take me
That’s the dream
that wakes me
in the middle of the night
There’s a brave soul
Hiding deep inside
And she’s waiting
But I’m just not sure what it takes to save me,
I’m stuck inside a woman I never meant to be….
