Lyrics for Never Meant by American Football:

Intro
We ready?... We- We can keep that one, right?
Ready?
One... two...
One, two, three...

Verse 1
Let's just forget everything said
And everything we did
Best friends and better halves
Goodbyes

And the autumn night
When we realized
We were falling out of love

Interlude
There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said that weren't meant

There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said that weren't meant
There were some things that were said
But we never did

Verse 2
Not to be overly (Overly)
Dramatic
I just think it's best
'Cause you can't miss what you forget

Bridge
So, let's just pretend
Everything and anything
Between you and me
Was never meant

Outro
Was never meant

Song Facts

The lead track off of their first album, “Never Meant” immediately throws the listener into the emo/math rock/post-rock sound for which American Football is known.

Played in 6/4 time, the song is about trying to justify a failed relationship. It’s easy to be in love, but what do you do after it falls out? Suppressing all the memories and emotions and hiding them away – that’s what lead singer Mike Kinsella deals with here.
