"It Coulda Been Me" as written by and Ness....
I got friends who are in prison,
Friends who are dead.
I'm gonna tell you something
That I've often said.

You know these things that happen,
That's just the way it's supposed to be.
And I can't help but wonder,
Don't ya know it could of been me.
I had me a good girl,
Her kisses sweeter than wine.
And I had always hoped
That someday I'd make her mine.

But she ran off and married,
That's just the way it's supposed to be.
And I can't help but wonder,
Don't ya know it could of been me.
Well the junkie-cops on first street,
Sticks a needle in his arm.
No, he never meant to do
Anyone no harm.

But he's buried six feet deep,
That's just the way it's supposed to be.
And I can't help but wonder,
Don't ya know it could of been me.
I had me a good girl,
Her kisses sweeter than wine.
And I had always hoped
That someday I'd make her mine.

    General CommentI know exactly what this song is about because it is about my friend's mom. Mike Ness wrote it about her. They used to date when they were in their twenties and he left to go on tour. When he came back for her, she was married.

    General CommentI dont have any friends who are dead or in jail, but I got friends with drug problems, friends running with gangs, friends who are bent on self-destruction one way or another... and sometimes I think... every one of them coulda been me... or maybe they shoulda been...
