"It Could've Been You" as written by Deborah Cox and Lascelles Stephens....
Congratulations baby, it's been a while
I heard through the grapevine that you're seeing a friend of mine
I hate to say this baby but I think you should know
I hear 'bout how she treats you everywhere I go

I hear you're runnin', hidin', tryin' to be discreet
But let me to tell you, there's no need for you to hide from me
I've found someone who takes my lovin' seriously
You've gambled and lost baby pay the cost
For walking out on me

It coulda been you loving me
It woulda been everything you wanted a love to be
It coulda been you holding me, seven days a week
And baby if you wanted a real love you shoulda stayed with me

So here you come talkin' baby, with the same ol' lines
You're tryin' to break down my defense
So you can tell me one more lie
But I ain't hearin' you baby
'Cause you caused me pain
This time you've gone too far
And now you lost it all in vain

You say you love me but I find it hard to believe
It didn't take that long for you to get over me
Now after all this time you're trying to get back with me
But now the tables have turned and you're on the outside looking in

It coulda been you loving me
It woulda been everything you wanted a love to be
It coulda been you holding me, seven days a week
And baby if you wanted a real love you shoulda stayed with me

It coulda been you loving me
It woulda been everything you wanted a love to be
It coulda been you holding me, seven days a week
And baby if you wanted a real love you shoulda stayed with me

I hear she's got you all stressed out
It cost you a fortune just to take her out
You say that she's takin' you for a ride
I coulda told you so
If I had my choice I would be with you
But you could've done much better too
And that's what you get for thinking that you could find a better love

It coulda been you loving me
It woulda been everything you wanted a love to be
It coulda been you holding me, seven days a week
And baby if you wanted a real love you shoulda stayed with me

It coulda been you loving me
It woulda been everything you wanted a love to be
It coulda been you holding me, seven days a week
And baby if you wanted a real love you shoulda stayed with me
