Had It All

  • Why'd I have to go and be a fool again
    Why'd I have to go and make a big thing outta nothing
    I didn't know what I had
    'Til you were gone
    It was right in front of me
    All along
    And now those days a same old story
    Are feelin' more like faded glory

    I had it all
    I threw it all aside
    Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
    I had it all baby
    To give it away
    Blue skies sunshine and butterflies
    Those were the conditions that I left behind
    Why did I let it go to waste
    I had it all

    So where are all the fireworks I thought I'd see
    I still haven't found the magic I was lookin' for that made me leave
    Oh no
    I traded in my comfort zone
    For empty nights of bein' alone

    I had it all
    I threw it all aside
    Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
    I had it all baby
    To give it away
    Blue skies sunshine and butterflies
    Those were the conditions that I left behind
    Why did I let it go to waste

    Why did I believe that a little voice
    Led me down the path to this bad choice
    Why don't I listen to the angels
    When they sing oh yeah they sing
    Oh yeah

    I had it all
    I threw it all aside
    Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
    I had it all baby
    To give it away
    Blue skies sunshine and butterflies
    Those were the conditions that I left behind
    Why did I let it go to waste
    I had it all
    Why did I let it go to waste
    I had it all
    Why'd I have to go and be a fool againWriter/s: DAVID HODGES, KARA DIOGUARDI, MITCHELL SCHERR
