What Could've Been

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)
  • I haven't stopped thinking about you
    Has it really been this long?
    Two years and an ocean between us
    And I don't know where it all went wrong

    I know I coulda kissed you harder
    And yeah, you coulda followed through
    Shoulda talked a little bit softer
    But we meant every "I love you"

    I don't know what this is or what it isn't
    But it feels like we've got unfinished business

    Cause we left blood the on the tracks
    Sweat on the saddle
    Fire in the hills
    A bullet in the barrel
    Words never said in a story that didn't end
    Looks like you're on the mend and I'm on the bottle
    We folded our hands with money on the table
    Tried moving on but I keep coming back again
    To what could've been...

    A couple more simple I'm sorrys
    A little less trying to be right
    I wonder how many good mornings we wasted cause we didn't say goodnight

    One touch before we fell asleep
    Just before our love was out of reach
    Coulda been enough, coulda saved us from this loneliness

    Cause we left blood the on the tracks
    Sweat on the saddle
    Fire in the hills
    A bullet in the barrel
    Words never said in a story that didn't end
    Looks like you're on the mend and I'm on the bottle
    We folded our hands with money on the table
    Tried moving on but I keep coming back again
    To what could've been...

    I thought I'd see it clearly from a distance
    But it still feels like we've got unfinished business

    Cause baby we left
    Blood the on the tracks
    Sweat on the saddle
    Fire in the hills
    A bullet in the barrel
    Words never said in a story that didn't end
    Looks like you're on the mend and I'm on the bottle
    We folded our hands with money on the table
    Tried moving on but I keep coming back again
    To what could've been
    What could've been
    What could've been
    Shoulda been
    Do you still wonder?
    Still wonder?
    What could've been
    What could have been...
    What could have been...
    What could have been...
