Aint Meant To Be

from by Jonathan Burks



oh my darling
can't you see
I'm not the kind of man
that you need
it aint you, it aint me
it aint meant to be

most of the time
I beat myself up
for not being good
at being in love
it aint you...

I can't say
you done me wrong
just the same
I don't want to hang around
it aint you...

oh my darling
can't you see
I'm not the kind of man
you need me to be
it aint you...

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
