Name of Song: It wasn’t meant to be

I became a spiritual snob,
It wasn’t meant to be,
But life shelled out experiences
that changed the way I see.

A fearful self protection,
Refusal to confront,
But now I have come out of it,
Relieved to feel its brunt.

Chorus
Surprised I was to see it,
Never thought I was,
But underneath it lurked inside
my losses reigning cause.

Bridge
We carry with us pictures
of who and what we’ve been,
Memories we remember,
and memories hard to see.
They all react inside of us,
Good and bad it seems,
Forever making copies
to keep alive the dreams.
