about

I was in the park playing my ukulele, and the first phrase came out of nowhere:

"You never told me how easy it would be to forget you".

It reminded me of someone I dated quickly in college, who was clearly not meant for me, and whose name I don't even remember. I wrote this song thinking of that relationship, with the help of Kim Dowd for the lyrics and rhymes.

lyrics

[Verse]
You never told me how easy
It would be to forget you
I don't remember your name
All I know is I regret you

I met you one night
When I was lonely
I thought you were right for me
But if only

[Pre-chorus]
I was looking for love
Where it isn't meant to be
There was never a story
Of you and me

[Verse]
I wasn't really into you
You didn't like me
I never understood
What we were supposed to be

We weren't really friends
Barely strangers
My heart was at peace
And couldn't see the danger

[Pre-chorus]
In trying to find love
Where it's not supposed to be
There was never between us
Any chemistry

[Chorus]
I still remember when I saw you for the first time
But I don't think you were ever meant to be mine
We're lost in chances playing love like a game
But I don't think I can remember your name

[Verse]
I don't know when you left my life
I didn't care
If there were tears
I wasn't there

The last time I saw you
You didn't see me
Once more we were strangers
Like we're supposed to be

[Outro]
I stopped looking for love
Where it's not meant to be
So that one day I might set
My heart free
