I close my eyes
to hurt you,
to leave you.

I never told you
that I
can't stay.

It was never
meant to be,
for me.

Everyone I'm sure
will tell you,
"Love will
need you."
But I don't
believe you.

Cause I never had it
the way I
was supposed to.

It's all dead and gone.
Believe me
when I say.

It was never
meant to be,
for me.

Everyone I'm sure
will tell you,
"Love will
need you."
But I don't
believe you.

I close my eyes
to hurt you
to leave you

I never told you
that I
can't stay

It was never
meant to be
for me

    General Commentsong about the things that aren't meant to be. maybe it starts internally and ends eternally.

    General CommentPerfect song. I love the rhythm, the sounds, the words. It's the kind of song you put on repeat and play over and over. The message seems pretty simple -- things don't work out, someone has never been able to find true love, a heartbreaker with a broken heart. Combined with the instruments and that distance between the words and the sounds, this song is spellbinding. It's my favorite of the Raveonettes.
