Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line




The Experience: My heart's been hurt a couple times... Hurt once. Hurt twice. It's hard to risk hurt again...

Music video: Bebe Rexha is a drifter in search of somewhere with open doors. She finally ends up in bar singing together with Florida Georgia Line. It's her dream come true: someone she can finally sing the same song with. But it's only a dream - the oven alarm pings, and waitress Rexha is back to work with a frustrated f-ck.

The Meaning of Meant to Be: She's been hurt two times too many. He wants her to kick back and ride here next to him. She needs feeling. He offers hope: if it's meant to be it'll be. But he doesn't (can't?) offer guarantees of something more than fake love. Both are honest. She's wants love but fears the risk. The music hints that they try: Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha finish the song singing if it's meant to be it'll be together. But we don't know if they succeed.

Ask yourself: Is true love only a dream? Is hope a lie even when it's sincere?

Album: All Your Fault: Part 2 (2017)

LYRICS:


[Florida Georgia Line]
Baby, lay on back and relax
Kick your pretty feet up on my dash
No need to go nowhere fast, let's enjoy right here where we at

Who knows where this road is supposed to lead?
We got nothing but time
As long as you're right here next to me, everything's gonna be alright

If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, just let it be
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, just let it be
So won't you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, if it's meant to be

[Bebe Rexha]
I don't mean to be so uptight
But my heart's been hurt a couple times by a couple guys that didn't treat me right
I ain't gon' lie, ain't gon' lie
Cause I'm tired of the fake love, show me what you're made of
Boy, make me believe

[Florida Georgia Line]
Oh, hold up girl, don't you know you're beautiful?
And it's easy to see

[Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line]
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, just let it be
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby just let it be
So won't you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, if it's meant to be

So c'mon ride with me, ride with me
See where this thing goes
So c'mon ride with me, ride with me
Baby, if it's meant to be

[Bebe Rexha (Florida Georgia Line) {Both}]
(Maybe we do)
Maybe we don't
(Maybe we will)
[both] Maybe we won't}

[Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line]
But if it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, just let it be
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be (c'mon)
Baby, just let it be (let's go)
So won't you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be
Baby, if it's meant to be

[Bebe Rexha (Florida Georgia Line)]
(If it's meant to be), it'll be, (it'll be)
[both] Baby, if it's meant to be
(If it's meant to be), it'll be, (it'll be)
[both]Baby, if it's meant to be
