Could Have Been You

Album: Colour Me Free (2009)
  • Oh it's a shame
    We used to be so tight
    Tell me what's you're game?
    Since you left me outside
    I'm gonna change my track
    Go anywhere but back, oh oh
    When I think about it,
    I'm better off without it

    No gain, only pain
    My heart can't take the strain
    I can't sit on the shelf
    I'll give my love to someone else

    If you see me walking by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    Know that it's true (ooh ooh)
    It could have been you
    If you'd only treated me right
    Out of sight, baby, out of mind
    That's what you do (ooh ooh)
    Could have been you (ooh ooh)

    Huh huh huh huh
    Huh huh huh (ooh ooh oh)
    Huh huh huh huh
    Huh huh

    Ain't gonna wait, for what you promised me
    Like a train, delayed
    Forever so it seems
    I'm gonna change my track
    Go anywhere but back, oh oh
    When I think about it
    I'm better off without it

    No gain, only pain
    My heart can't take the strain
    I can't sit on the shelf
    I'll give my love to someone else

    If you see me walking by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    Know that it's true (ooh ooh)
    It could have been you
    If you'd only treated me right
    Out of sight, baby, out of mind
    That's what you do (ooh ooh)
    Could have been you (ooh ooh)

    You could of been me my first, my last, forever
    You had it in your hands, my heart, my treasure
    The proof is in the memories
    So sad to know this song was meant for you and me
    What could have been
    Ooh

    (Well, it's a shame)
    If you see me walking by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    Know that it's true (ooh ooh)
    It could have been you
    (See, it could have been you)
    If you'd only treated me right
    Out of sight, baby, out of mind
    That's what you do (ooh ooh)
    Could have been you (ooh ooh)

    If you see me walking by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    Know that it's true (ooh ooh)
    It could have been you
    If you'd only treated me right
    Out of sight, baby, out of mind
    That's what you do (ooh ooh)
    Could have been you (ooh ooh)

    If you see me walking by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    Know that it's true (ooh ooh)
    It could have been you
    If you'd only treated me right
    Out of sight, baby, out of mind
    That's what you do (ooh ooh)
    Could have been you (ooh ooh)Writer/s: CONNOR REEVES, JONATHAN NICHOLAS SHORTEN, JOSS STONE
