"Could've Been" as written by and Lois Blaisch....
The flowers you gave me
Are just about to die
When I think about
What could've been
It 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
Every day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
I'll never hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night

The memory's of our lovin'
Still linger in the air
Like the faded scent of your roses
They stay with me everywhere

Every time I get my hopes up
They always 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
Every day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right

You could love what could've been
On a cold and lonely night?

    General Commentthis is such a sad song... but so beautiful. It makes me think of my ex-bf and how really BEAUTIFUL it could HAVE been if... but as there'll always be an "if" I'm happy and over it... :)

    General CommentGreat song. The meaning is pretty self-explanitory, its all about what a failed relationship could have been, and what she wanted it to be, but in the end it just didn't work out. Many people can relate to the lyrics which is what makes it such a good song. Love it!

    General Commentlove this song takes me back to being 18, my parents made me split with my first love and this song was out at the time and we sang 'could've been so beautiful could've been so right'. Still resent my parents for ruining what was an amazing time of my life, and something that doesn't come along everyday.
