"I Could've Seen It All" as written by Nitin Sawhney and Samuel Lloyd Duckworth....
What if I could run, what if I could hide away
From all the things I've done, would I start it all again?

I could've seen it all
I could've seen it all if I bide my time
I could've seen it all
I could've seen it all but I wanted more

And through all the great things I've seen
I couldn't live with just a dream,
but it was more than just a dream

It seems we always fight against the things that lead us on
We always take a bite of the apple that will seed our fall
And you could see it all, you could see it all
But that's not what you need
I've seen it all, I've seen it all in pathetic falacies

And although there's great things to see
We get struck in our hypocrisy and we'll revel in our greed

What if I could dive, what if I could see the ocean floor
What if I could fly, what if I could spread my wings and soar
I could've seen it all
I could've seen it all but I took my time
I could've seen it all
I could've seen it all but I wanted more

And through all the great things I've seen,
human nature took the best of it for me
Yeah you took the best for me

I Could've seen it all (repeat to fade)

    General CommentSeems like this song is about people always wanting more than what they have. Even if what they have is good enough already. And because we always trying to get more we miss out on all the good things in life and instead focas on all the bad things which makes everything worse. Something we are ALL guilty of and that we can all relate to.
