Never Meant To Know, a song by Rob Cantor.



Lyrics[edit]

Woke up today with a lay of the land
Feather in cap & the sun in the sand
It was easy
It was easy to understand
Everything suddenly falls out of sight
Every attachment is made of the light
That you offered
You have offered to give me life

CHORUS
See the sky & all the land together again
See the way the earth can stay below
Who do we think we are?
Everything plays a part
There are some things we are never meant to know

Having enjoyed all the meat from the bone
Is perfectly equal to being alone
It was even
But you breathe & I turn to stone
Everything suddenly looks like a sign
Easy to see from the outermost clime
I believe in what I leave in the way behind

CHORUS
& all the parts combine to one
& all of us around the sun
Everything will fall away
To order from the disarray

See the sun the shadows cast
From all the times I floated past
See the ocean spinning out
With all the hope & all the doubt

See the sky & all the land together again
See the way the earth can stay below
Who do we think we are?
Everything plays a part
There are some things we don't understand
Reasons on the other hand
There are some things we are never meant to know

          F#m                B                E   E9
There are some things we are never meant to know

And after that, just keep alternating between E and E9.

NOTE: The chords in the bridge aren't actually played on a guitar, but I'm 99% sure that these are the chords that Rob plays in the song.
