You Were Meant for Me “is a folk pop song written by Jewel 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.

You Were Meant For Me ranked at number 15 on Billboard’s All Time Top 100 in 2008. When the All Time chart was retabulated for the chart’s 55th anniversary in 2013, it remained in the top 20 at number 17. Enjoy Jewel.
