The flowers that you gave me
Are just about to die
When I think about what could've been
Makes me want to cry
The sweet words you whispered
Didn't mean a thing
I guess our song is over
As we begin to sing

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
Could've been my lover
Everyday day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
I'll never know what could've been
On a cold and lonley night

The memories of our lovin'
Still linger in the air
Like the faded scent of your roses
Stay with me everywhere
Everytime I get my hopes up
They only seem to fall
Still what could've been
Is better than what could never be at all

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
Could've been my lover
Everyday day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
You can't know what could've been
On a cold and lonley night

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
You can't know what could've been
On a cold and lonley night
Ni-ooh-ight
Ni-ooh-ight
How can you know what could've been
On a cold and lonley night

    General CommentTiffany originally made it, and Mandy Moore made a remake. So it's Tiffany's song, she originally sang it, and Mandy Moore sings it also.
