"It Could Have Been You" as written by Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry and Neal Schon....
We were so close yet so far away
I'd reach out, you'd be gone
Moments that still talk my breath away
There's so much more to life than loving you
You don't need me, no...

I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you

Time washes over, memories
I can't look back no more
Change has forsaken, our promises
There's someone else for you to hold again
So please stop your crying

I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you

Remember, remember, girl I remember
I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you (where are you now)
Should have been you my love (where are you now)
It could have been you my love, (where are you now)
Remember...remember...remember

    General CommentThis seems like a song about distance relationships to me. "We were so close" (emotionally) "but so far away" (physically). After time passed, it took its toll on him, and he basically tells her to put up or shut up, because he can't "wait all [his] life on a street of broken dreams". He obviously feels like he could have been with her forever and wonders if she feels the same way, by asking "I still wonder if you remember the night- it could have been you".
