(Brad Cotter/Rick Giles/Steve Bogard)

Things get in the way
Rush of every day
Ordinary stuff we all get into
Wouldn’t it be sad
If all you ever had
Was a granite epitaph that said I meant to

So any pretty woman I didn’t take the time to kiss
Any crazy thing I didn’t do
I meant to
Any dirty liar I didn’t stare right in the eye
And make ‘em tell the naked truth
I meant to

I’m always on the run
Things get lost
Some things get done
But if I didn’t have all the fun
I meant to
If I never came out and said
To each and every woman I love
How much I really do
I meant to

Maybe this one chance is all we really have
Maybe all you got is what you get to
Well I ain’t gonna cry
I’ll give it my best try
And kiss the world goodbye and say I meant to

So any pretty woman I didn’t take the time to kiss
Any crazy thing I didn’t do
I meant to
Any dirty liar I didn’t stare right in the eye
And make ‘em tell the naked truth
I meant to

I’m always on the run
Some things get done
But if I didn’t have all the fun
I meant to ( I meant to)
If I never came out and said
To each and every woman I love
How much I really do
I meant to
I meant to
