“You Were Meant For Me”
Chord Progression w/Introduction
As Performed By Jewel
Transcribed For Acoustic Guitar by Eric Norcross
http://www.ericnorcross.com

Most of the song can be played with simple strumming, however, the familiarity lies in 
beautiful melody that can be picked.  That melody is the introduction and should be 
in the beginning and once more before the last verse.

Tuning: EADGBe

[Verse 1]

Cadd9             G6
I hear the clock, it's six a.m.
C                  Em
I feel so far from where I've been
Cadd9                    G6
I got my eggs.  I got my pancakes too
C                     D
I got my maple syrup, everything but you
Cadd9                     G6
I break the yolks, make a smiley face
C                     Em
I kinda like it in my brand new place
         Cadd9                                   G6
Wipe the spots off of the mirror don't leave the keys in the door
C                            D
I never put my towels on the floor anymore 'cause…


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D            Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D        Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you

[Verse 2]

Cadd9                      G6
I called my momma, she was out for a walk
C                            Em
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk so I
Cadd9                     G6
Picked up a paper, it was more bad news
C                           D
More hearts being broken or people being used
Cadd9                 G6
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
C                     Em
I saw a movie it just wasn't the same
       Cadd9           G6
'Cause it was happy oh I was sad and
C                   D
It made me miss you oh so bad


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D            Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D        Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you


[Bridge]

C                         D
Go about my business, I'm doing fine
         G               D              Em
Besides, what I say if I had you on the line
C                   D
Same old story, not much to say
Em
Hearts are broken every day


[Intro] (x2)


[Verse 3]

Cadd9                        G6
I brush my teeth and put the cap back on
C                         Em
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
  Cadd9            G6
I pick a book up.  Turn the sheets down.
C                        D
Take a deep breath and a good look around
Cadd9              G6
Put on my pj's and hop into bed
    C                     Em
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
Cadd9                       G6
I try and tell myself it'll be all right
C                         D
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight


[Chorus]

C           D
Dreams last so long
G    D            Em
Even after you're gone
C           D
I know that you love me
G        D        Em
And soon you will see
C
You were meant for me
    D               Em   Em
And I was meant for you


[Outro]

C
You were meant for me
    D
and I was meant for
