Couldn't Touch You

Guess I'm the last to see, clearly you weren't meant for me.
You took your stay in the imaginary arms of mine.
Lo and behold, oh wait goodness no...
There was not a light, not a twinkle in your eye...
You must have given up because there were no more phone calls, no more sweet messages;
Connection was gone again and I guess that's what I get...did I ever know you at all?

You weren't mine;
I wasn't yours.
We didn't get that far--
we didn't get too far before you gave it all back.
There was not a single thing...nothing from you,
but I sent you letters do you remember?
 But after all, there is just one thing you did do...
You showed me a new door of this life,
maybe that was your purpose with me.

But I guess it's quite obvious that you weren't mine.
And the dream wasn't enough.
You must have given up because there were no more phone calls, no more sweet messages;
Connection was gone again and I guess that's what I get...
Did  I ever really know you at all?

Well maybe the miles ran without my words,
maybe they never reached your heart--
It's hard to get through to someone you can't touch.
Now it's clear to see, I wasn't yours
And you weren't mine...
I'm not yours, and you're not mine

And the words I can remember are the ones I most despise.
"We're all born to die, and we haven't a purpose in life,"
Where's the truth in that?
Maybe it's your point of view, your opinion,
But I must let you know
There's a lot more to it- a lot more to life than that
There's more than you think, more than you see, and more than you can even dream of,
Maybe I didn't get to show you that.
