Michael Franks - You Were Meant For Me Lyrics




Flirting with temptation
Falling helplessly
From the moment I saw you
I new that
You were meant for me

All those years to find you
Love's telepathy
Guided me like a heartbeat
Repeating
You were meant for me

Such a samba
Ay caramba!
Dancing close so
Sensuoso
Rhythms underneath the
Tropic skies
Helped me to realize
How evidently
You were meant for me

There's just one solution
To this mystery
Give your heart
In surrender
Admit that
You were meant for me
