Jian Choo Releases an Original Song & MV – “Never Meant to Be”

We’ve become more accustomed to featuring Jian C as a cover artist who likes to try his hand at popular songs from throughout Asia. But today brings us an original tune from the Calgary singer called “Never Meant to Be”. Overall, it’s a heartfelt decent effort with some strengths though it just falls just short in the polish department as some of his more seasoned Youtube Music Video contemporaries.

This is for all of you that have ever given someone everything, only to be hurt in return.

This is for all of you that have ever had to lie and tell yourself that you were okay, because it was the only thing you could do.

I honestly hope that you cannot relate to this song.

But if you can; This is for you.

[Verse]

Do you know what it’s doing to me
To know how wrong I was about you
Hurts to know how easy
You let it all go

(But it feels like) Yesterday
That I was everything to you

(So now I’ll tell myself that) I’m okay
Cause isn’t that how you’re feeling too?

[Chorus]

But I can’t forget
All the love we shared
Cause the things you do
Tell me you don’t care
So is this the way
That our story ends
Girl, I don’t know what to do
This song was never meant to be about you.

[Verse 2]

Flipping through all the photos that we took together
And it kills me everytime I make myself remember
But don’t worry
I’m so used to it now
When everything I do
Reminds me of you

(I can’t breathe) When I see how happy we were
Don’t you miss how that feels?

(I can’t believe) I wasted so much love on you

[Chorus 2]

So let me please forget
All the love we shared
Cause the the things you do
Tell me you don’t care
So is this the way
That our story ends
Girl, I don’t know what to do
This song was never meant to be about you.

[Bridge]

And every night I’d wait
For you to come around
(Every single moment)
But I guess it wasn’t worth your time
To hold on to a love like what we had, was it baby?

And now that you’re with someone else
Just know that I wish you luck
(Girl, I wish it true)
For all the nights you’ll spend just thinking of me
Wishing I was still thinking of you

[Chorus 3]

So why can’t I forget
All the love we shared?
When it’s clear to me
Baby, you don’t care
So is this the way
That our story ends
Girl, I don’t know what to do
This song was never meant to be about you

[Final Chorus]

So take back everything
That you promised me
I’ll be better off
As a memory
I’d do anything
To find out that this all wasn’t true
But I know
I never meant a thing to you.

(All the starry nights)
(All the water fights)
(All the smiles we had)
(All the songs we’ve sang)
(Every word we’ve said)
(All the tears we’ve shed)
(But I just can’t forget all the love the we had)
