Never Meant To Be     (Rick Bacus)
from the album Venus (1979)


I wish you had told me then
We were never meant to be
I was trying hard to win
So you'd be proud of me

Oh we carried on so well
Hate to see it fade away
But I 'spose you're doing well
So I'll save it for a rain day

If I could fool someone
I'd only fool myself
The road I've wandered down
Is not the road to wealth
The changes that I've gone through
Livin' up to now
Have led me to a place
But I couldn't tell you how

I wish you had set me free
No broken hearts to mend
I played my part so seriously
I'll never take that chance again

If I could fool someone
I'd only fool myself
The road I've wandered down
Is not the road to wealth
The changes that I've gone through
Livin' on my own
Have led me to a place
But I couldn't call it home
