COULD HAVE BEEN
LINGERING RELENTLESSLY OVER THE PAST
STUCK UNCONSCIENCLY ON WHAT I USED TO HAVE
NOT REALIZING I HAVE SOMETHING BETTER IN FRONT OF ME
I KEEP TRYING TO GET BACK WHAT USED TO BE
INSTEAD OF LOOKING FORWARD I STARE BLANKLY BACK
LIVING OFF OF COULD HAVE BEENS IGNORING THE FACT
THAT YOU ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I WILL NEVER AGAIN SEE
BUT FOR SOMEONE WHO DONT WANT ME I'D LET YOU GO SO EASILY
I DONT LIVE FOR REGRET BUT YOU WILL BE ONE
I WENT FOR THE WRONG THING AND ENDED UP WITH NONE
SO NOW IM ALONE PLAYING IT OUT IN MY HEAD
THAT I SHOULD HAVE LEARNED MY LESSON BEFORE "THE END"
MAYBE ONE DAY YOULL LOOK BACK AT THE PAST
AND REALIZE IM SORRY AND TAKE ME BACK
BUT UNTIL THAT DAY ILL WAIT FOR YOU LIKE I WAITED FOR HIM
NOT GOING FORWARD AND LIVING OFF OF COULD HAVE BEENS
