Lyrics and Poetry

Mr. You’re-Not-For-Me

When I wrote this I was in the shoes of the fabulous Taylor Swift, during her “White Horse” and “Teardrops on my Guitar” era. I wondered how she would thought of a boy that wasn’t really meant for her and the way she would move on.

So here it is… I hope you’d love it.

Maybe you were the perfect guy,
But you’re not for me.
You’ve got the eyes I’m looking for,
You’re not for me.
They said I could find my prince,
But I guess it wasn’t you.
They said I could find love,
I think it ain’t from you.

The moment I realized the truth,
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.

I loved to touch the bridge of your nose,
But not anymore.
Your height fits me,
But we ain’t compatible.
They said you’re so cute,
I guess I have to agree.
But when they asked “D’ya love him?”
I said, “you were only just a dream!”

The moment I realized the truth
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.
