  • You could've loved me, but I did it all wrong
    Running around, taking my time, taking too long
    You were an anchor, I was wild and free
    But you could've loved me

    Now it's crazy to see you wearing that ring
    We could've been young and dumb and restless
    Could've been everything
    You had your reasons
    I had my dreams
    But you could've loved me

    Sometimes love falls in your hands
    Sometimes love has other plans
    Sometimes good good things just get away from us
    I'd be lying if I said I didn't have any regrets
    I just know it has to be this way because
    I'm still exactly who I was

    But you could've loved me
    If it happened just right
    But we rise and we fall and we can't win them all
    'Cause that's just life
    It ain't like the stories you see in the movies
    But you could've loved me

    Sometimes love falls in your hands
    Sometimes love has other plans
    Sometimes good good things just get away from us
    I'd be lying if I said I didn't have any regrets
    I just know it has to be this way because
    I'm still exactly who I was

    But you could've loved me
    If I could've stayed
    But the world kept pulling me out of this town
    And it's better that way
    'Cause I'm still a dreamer, wild and free
    But you could've loved me Writer/s: Chris Gelbuda, Dustin Christensen
