"Might Have Been" as written by Kate Elizabeth Voegele and Marshall N. Altman....
I break away from every situation like this one most times, baby
But since you been 'round here, I've given in, my dear,
To your captivation daily
Well I'm not the type
Who gets voted most likely to be victimized
By those old butterflies
But you're the exception,
Your love is infectious,
The fever is climbing high

[Chorus]
I hope you don't mind if I fall asleep on your shoulder
Now, turn out the lights and let the night begin
I hope it's alright if you're still mine when we're older,
Cause I won't spend another day wondering what might have been

No, no, no

I was so cynical,
Just inconvincible,
Nobody seemed worth trusting
But sure enough, just when
I'd near given up,
You appeared there among the destruction yeah,
Well now its official,
I've lost my initial suspicions
And skepticism yeah,
You got me caving in,
Feeling the craving,
I see now what I'd been missing, yeah

[Chorus]

Oh, yeah
You got my permission to
Break the tradition, yeah
No limited editions
This is a persistent
Change of disposition
No more inhibitions
Cause I don't want to spend my life wishing,
No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no,
No, no, no
Don't you know?

[Chorus]

I hope you don't mind if I fall asleep on your shoulder
Now, turn out the lights and let the night begin
I hope it's alright if you're still mine when we're older,
Cause I won't spend another day wondering
I won't spend another day wondering
I won't spend another day wondering
What might have been?

No, no, no, no, no
Might have been, babe
Well might have been

    My OpinionI love this song, every song on the Don't Look Away album is great, but i repeated this one so many times, every time i play Thrillville Off the Rails, that song runs through my mind. I think it's about her knowing who she wants, knowing who the one is, and she not letting another day go by without being with him. She won't keep wondering what might be. Between this song, I Won't Disagree, and It's Only Life, my favorite always switches.
