Supposed To Be

  • Sat on the rooftop
    Watching the birds flying free
    Watching the clouds walk
    And watching the rain become the sea
    Hearing my love talk
    Every breath she ever breathes
    Like it was always supposed to be like that

    But then we broke up (oh no)
    And she went west and I went east
    She got a new boyfriend (oh no)
    A little too soon if you're asking me
    I heard that she loves him
    A litte bit more than she'll ever love me
    And it was always supposed to be like that

    I look to the skyline and said
    How many falls until I fly
    Look to the old times
    How many roads until I find
    And oh it's tough now
    'Cause love always, love always is unkind

    I sat on the rooftop
    And I watched the birds flying free
    I watched the clouds walk
    And I watched the rain become the sea
    And just for a moment, just for a moment
    I felt so free from all I'm supposed to be

    I look to the skyline and said
    How many falls until I fly
    Look to the old times I said
    How many roads until I find
    And oh it's tough now
    'Cause love always, love always is unkind Writer/s: TOM PETER ODELL
