"Anything" as written by and Paul Durham....
It could have been anyone
Could have been a woman or a man.
Must have swept her away,
Made her forget who I am.
It could have been anyone
Could have slipped me a drug.
Must have been a permanent dose
To make me forget who she was.

It could have been anything
Could have been the time we spent alone.
Maybe too much time together
Maybe too close to the bone.
It could have been anything
A word I might have said
Just a look I mght have given
Just the angel of my head
(I forget)

But we come, we go
We say that we know
But we don't remember and
Don't remind each other, we come, we go.
We say that we know
But we don't remember
No, we don't recognize each other.

It could have been anyone
Any rumor passed around
Someone made her doubt me, made her head for high ground.
It could have been anything
Any gesture or word.
Maybe something I mis-stated, something she misunderstood
(I would)

We come, we go
But we don't remember.
And we don't recognize that maybe this time things might work out right
Maybe this time she might catch my eye.
Maybe something, anything, the ring around her finger.

It could have been anything
Any place that's shattered on the way
It could have been anything, anyone, she'll take another lover.
It could have been anything
Anything, anything.
We come, we go.
But we don't remember.
And we don't recognize each other.

    General Commentit's about how after time apart from someone,you forget who they were to you,who they were as a person,and how they really were..when you like someone,all their bad traits seem to be non-exsistent,and you see only the good,or what you think is good,and how after the feelings fade away,you see the person for who they truly were
