SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU

the way you brushed your hair    

from those big brown eyes I swear    

stole my heart each time what a beautiful crime  

it’s easy now to understand how I fell in love

but sometimes love is not enough

***

there was something in your smile

made me feel like i

was in an endless summer day yeah we had it made

it’s easy now to understand how I fell in love

but sometimes love is not enough

***

it should have been you waking me in bed

it should have been you but it’s your memory instead

now regret is all I get to hold on to

it should have been you

***

i’m not saying we should make another run

no we tried that once, way too many times

i can’t keep my heart from wishin’ what it wants

lord knows i don’t keep you off my mind

***

it should have been you chasing dreams with me

it should have been you but now i’m breaking at the seams

Now regret is all I get to hold on to

it should have been you, it should have been you

now regret is all I get to hold on to
