Marry Me a Little - It Wasn't Meant to Happen Lyrics

(cut from Follies the Musical)
(written by Stephen Sondheim It Wasn't Meant to Happen lyrics)

Well my dear,
Too bad.
It wasn’t meant to happen.

No harm done,
How sad.
It wasn’t meant to happen.

We had our little moment --
No, don’t.
Don’t worry for me.
I worry for you, dear.
I want you to be happy.
Happy.

So my dear,
Goodnight.
It wasn’t meant to happen.

Pleasant dreams,
I’ll write.
It wasn’t meant to happen.

The candlewick was wet,
The champagne was flat,
The timing was wrong.

A little regret
And that’s that.
I’ll get along.

“We’ll both get along,”
She said as she exited smiling.

No, I mean it’s a shame
But there’s no one to blame.

“And we’ve got to be strong,” she said
As she called out tomorrow.

No, it would have been fun…
But its over and done…
Now I really must run.

Well, my dear,
Take care.
It wasn’t meant to happen.

Yes, I know,
Unfair.
It wasn’t meant to happen…
I guess.

God bless.
It seems…
Sweet dreams…
Good try.
Good bye...
