[Intro]
C D F (2x)

[Verse 1]
C D FFirst John was a dreamer from Californi-a
C D FHe told me I was pretty, said that we should run away
Eb Bb F Gm G C D F (2x)But he was just a high school dropout, oh what would momma say?
[Chorus 1]
F C G CHe showed me how to keep a secret and be a grown up at sixteen
F C GTaught me how to kiss a man, how to stumble, how to dream
F C G AmBut I saw the writing on the wall and it broke my heart to read
Am7 F F7 C D F (2x)We weren't meant to be forever, but we were meant to be
[Verse 2]
C D FNext John was a father who was really a lost son
C D FHe told me I was something, said that I could be someone
Eb Bb F Gm G C D F (2x)We sang Billy Joel together and I believed he was the One
[Chorus 2]
F C G CHe taught me how to give it all, made me think it was a trade
F C GAnd I found out that sometimes distance makes everything change
F C G AmHe saw the writing on the wall, broke my heart, and took his leave
Am7 F F7 C D F (2x)We weren't meant to be forever, but we were meant to be
[Verse 3]
C D FThird John was a vision with a gentle, healing smile
C D FHe was perfect on paper and we were perfect for a while
Ebm Bbm Fm G C D F (2x)But he spent our best days in doubt and I spent them in denial
[Chorus 3]
F C G CFourth John was a charmer, Fifth John was a mess
F C GHeartbreak's not my favorite teacher but she's the one I learn from best
F C G AmShe keeps writing on that wall truths I struggle to receive
Am7 FWhen it's not meant to be forever
F7 G C D F (2x)But we were meant to be together, (oh...)
[Final Chorus]
F C G Am Am7 FThis John's something special but there are no guarantees
F F7 C D F (2x) CMaybe we're not meant to be forever, but we are meant to be
