  • People say that together we were both sides of the same coin
    That we would shine like Venus in a clear night sky
    We thought our love could overcome the circumstances
    But my ambition wouldn't allow for compromise

    I could see in the distance all the dreams that were clear to me
    Every choice that I had to make left you on your own
    Somehow the road we started down had split asunder
    Too late to realize how far apart we'd grown.
    How I wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more

    Now " Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
    'Cause "Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
    And I wonder, wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do
    "Shoulda woulda coulda" are the last words of a fool

    People ask how it feels to live the kind of life others dream about
    I tell them everybody gotta face their highs and their lows
    And in my life there's a love I put aside, cause I was busy loving something else
    So for every little thing you hold on to, you've got to let something else go


    Fool if I would now forsake the opportunities are fate
    I know I'm right where I belong
    But sometimes when I'm not so strong I..
