    “WHAT YOU MEANT TO ME” © Elana James, Mandiola Music (BMI), 2009.
  • Saw you on the back porch,
    laughin, drinkin’ wine
    Still lookin so handsome, baby,
    like you did when you were mine.

    Well it looks like you found a new girl,
    I guess she’s more your style
    It’s good to see you’ve moved on, baby,
    but it hurts to see you smile.

    But words you said ring in my head,
    they’re never far from me.
    Of how time changes, rearranges–nothing’s meant to be.

    But I guess you did it baby,
    you finally found a way
    To get what you’d been needin’,
    and that’s why you couldn’t stay.

    Yeah I’m tryin not to read it,
    but you’re written in my heart.
    And though I tried to play it,
    you know I didn’t get the part.

    I don’t ask the questions,
    I don’t want to know.
    But time’s passin’ quickly now,
    and sorrow moves so slow.

    But I’m wishin’ you the best babe,
    I hope she makes you feel
    All the things I couldn’t
    and that this time it’s for real.

    But words you said ring in my head,
    they’re never far from me.
    Of how time changes, rearranges–nothing’s meant to be.

    And though I do believe you,
    it’s still so hard to see
    how time’s gonna change
    or rearrange what you meant to me.

    How’s time gonna change or rearrange what you meant to me?
