Lyrics Meant To Be – City and Colour

When I grew up
I had big city dreams
I wondered if the Bible was wrong
What the hell were they teaching me
I was lost in thought
And I could not hide it
But the sun, it kept on rising
So, I played along

But now that you’re gone
And I write down this song
I don’t believe
This is how it’s meant to be
The church bells they ring
You can hear the mourners sing
They still believe
This is how it’s meant to be

The wheels touch down
All I can see is your face
Amidst the noise of those lights
The last thing on my mind was my faith

And then the morning came
And the sun started rising
But I was missing my friend
So, how do I carry on

‘Cause now that you’re gone
And I write down this song
I don’t believe
This is how it’s meant to be
The church bells they ring
You can hear the mourners sing
They still believe
This is how it’s meant to be

Like a mother bird calling out for its young
I will sing it loud with all the might in my lungs

‘Cause now that you’re gone
And I write down this song
I don’t believe
This is how it’s meant to be
The church bells they ring
You can hear the mourners sing
They still believe
This is how it’s meant to be

How
Oh, how it’s meant to be, yeah…
