“You Were Meant for Me”
Jewel Kilcher was in Mexico with then-boyfriend Steve Poltz when the two songwriters came up with this song about not wanting to let go. "We were down there just surfin' together on this nice sunny day, and it was a little union of our thoughts," Poltz said. (Later that day, they found themselves assisting Mexican federales in a large pot bust on that same beach.) The more polished album version of this song was eventually replaced with a simpler one that showcased Jewel's folksy vocals. "Ultimately, if you have emotion, you can actually get away with a little less technical perfection," Jewel said.
