One day, we were walking through the hall Our eyes met, no one watching but the walls And we knew right then with that passing glance Saw our childrens' eyes and we walked right past 'cause You and me, we were never meant to be One day, we were sitting by the Nile Embracing, so engaged but all the while We were thinking thoughts of a lifetime past If the memory's gone will the passion last 'cause You and me, we were never meant to be Yeah you and me we can try but soon we'll see, by the by That you and me were never meant to be Yeah you and me we can try but soon we'll see, by the by That you and me were never meant to be Oh, we were never meant to be Oh, we were never meant to be
Well I would greatly enjoy the ability To temporarily sew up my lips Many hours lamenting their activity To reminisce without chills would be bliss Yet here I sit dreading the day ahead The repercussions of what has been said But the truth is they weren’t even listening And the tragedy’s all in my head Well I sure wouldn’t mind the invention of A reversible lobotomy Every now and then click I can turn it off And the worry would finally cease But unfortunately things don’t work that way Fairly certain they all know I’m lame But the truth is they didn’t give it much thought Hell they barely remember my name Well isn’t that often the case Wasting time just to save face While in the shuffle of the day-to-day race We sacrifice our peace for a place
There’s a thought in my head that my hands can’t keep up with And a song trying to sound but my mouth’s got caught up While the world’s spinning ‘round and my dream is to share Kinda lost what I found but I know that it’s there Though I wonder if I will ever find It’s still stored somewhere deeply in my mind And although it’s strange to say We’ll meet up one day But to wait ‘til then, that sure is something lame Tightly lying there The eyes can move Assessing surrounding conditions In the stagnant air Set in the groove Ambivalence making decisions And the actions that are needed Dance clearly in the light But now gravity’s succeeded And to fight one only might
I don’t wanna go in there I don’t wanna feel that air I don’t wanna step inside I don’t wanna take that ride I don’t want to hear your voice I don’t wanna make that choice I don’t wanna be I don’t wanna see I don’t wanna take advice I don’t wanna make it nice I don’t wanna waste my time I don’t wanna hear you whine I don’t wanna feel this way I don’t wanna live this day I don’t wanna go No I don’t wanna know No, no, no Well you can say what you want to say I am not going oh no not this day No way You can’t make me I don’t wanna You can’t make me I’m not gonna I don’t wanna see your face I don’t wanna win that race I don’t wanna plug it in I don’t wanna wear this skin I don’t wanna scratch that itch I don’t wanna be your bitch I don’t wanna lie I don’t wanna try
You never know where you’re going So you go to a party You never know where you’re going Mister Mo You know where you’re going So you go to a party You never know where you’re going You put the paint on the wall When you paint and snarkle And you dance and scream You pants and you dance and scream You dance and scream You dance on the screen You dance and scream And you never know where You dance and scream You never know – oh You dance and scream when you don’t know You dance and scream
