“You Were Meant for Me

” is a folk pop song written by


and Steve Poltz and performed by Jewel on her first album, Pieces of You. It relates the singer’s incomprehension of a failed relationship, and her inadequate attempts at moving on with her life. It was the second single from that album and went on to receive a great deal of recognition. It became a hit and reached #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks, (held off by “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” by Puff Daddy & Mase & “Hypnotize” by The Notorious B.I.G.) & and went to #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart for a single week.

Enjoy Jewel
