"Could've Been Me" as written by Richard Belmont (monty) Powell and Reed Nielsen....
I hear you just got married
Took a month long honeymoon
A new love smiles at the wedding
You cried when you kissed the groom
I got no invitation
I guess the mailman didn't bring it to me
But I see the whole thing in slow motion
Every night as I try to sleep
My buddy John said you looked real pretty
And you acted like you were in love
He said the preacher asked for objections
And he thought about standing up
I told John he must've been crazy
Cause you were just about to say I do
He just gave me a wink and said all he could think
Was it could've been me with you

It could've been me
Standing there with you
It could've been me
And my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on
If you wait too long
It took me 'til now to see
It could've been me

I don't guess I ever told you
That I went out and bought you a ring
I even carry it around in my pocket
Waiting to say the right thing
I pulled it out the other day
But the diamond had lost it's shine
Well I know how it feels cause my eyes grow dim
When I think you could've been mine


I know I called just in time a bit too late
You know dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me 'til now to see that


It could've been me
It could've been me
It could've been me
It could've been me

    General CommentThis guy is regretting a lost love. He hears from a friend that his ex has gotten married and think back on how he was close to proposing her. He realizes it could have been him she was marrying.

    General CommentThis song is about losing the woman you love to somebody else because you couldn't take the next step in the relationship. I've been there, done that.
