lyrics

Once upon a time when baby you was born
Maybe you're a daughter or maybe you're a son
You grew up fast and now you're getting on
Now you know that life doesn't last long at all

You thought you’d be happy as long as you save enough
Money in the bank to have a holiday
A pension adding up to retire one day
To buy a nice house and then you’d have it all

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be

Whenever you die will you be happy with your life?
Will you have done all the things that you thought you’d try?
Will you look back at all the days you spent on earth
And wonder whether it was really worth it at all?

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s all meant to be

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be
