Verse 1

And we're back to where we started.

Sometimes I think maybe we should have just parted ways.

All you can focus on are the nasty fights and the bad days.

I know you'll never have faith in our love.

I'm starting to think that I too am giving up.

Chorus

When it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.

I can try as hard as I can, but you'll never really love me.

I shouldn't have held on, kept trying to win your heart,

I shouldn't have tried to be brave.

I should never have forgotten that I'm just a slave.

Verse 2

I thought you were my wish upon a star.

But when I try to reach out it feels like you're so far away.

And I can't hear you, my Master, what did you just say?

Sorry, I must have been distracted by how

My whole world is falling apart right now.

Chorus

When it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.

I can try as hard as I can, but you'll never really love me.

I shouldn't have held on, kept trying to win your heart,

I shouldn't have tried to be brave.

I should never have forgotten that I'm just a slave.

Bridge

I close my eyes and paint pictures of cuddling in the couch,

And your fingers twirling with my hair.

But even in my dreams, I'm always aware that

We'll probably never get there.

Cause we're running around in circles.

And we're back to where we started.

Chorus

When it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.

I can try as hard as I can, but you'll never really love me.

I shouldn't have held on, kept trying to win your heart,

I shouldn't have tried to be brave.

I should never have forgotten that I'm just a slave.

I should never have forgotten that I'm just a slave.

I'm just a slave.

Just a slaveā€¦.
