Standing here, your eyes they seem to match the sky
more beautiful than anything
that ive ever seen before
I said, "no i'm not coming back"
but i swear, i'll run right back to you
This is the life we had to live
this is the life we had to leave behind
to understand all of this

standing there and blowing kisses at the sky
rememeber once there was a time
you were the only star in mine
then i said no, i'm not coming back
no, i'm not coming back to you
this is the live we had to live
this is the life we had to leave behind
to understand that this, this could be it
you could have been the one

this is the live we had to live
this is the life we had to leave behind
to understand that this, this could be it
you could have been the one


[wonder years quote at end of song:
"once upon a time, there was a girl i knew that lived across the street. brown hair, brown eyes. when she smiled, i smiled. when she cried, i cried. every single thing that ever happened to me that mattered, in some way, had to do with her. that day, winnie and i promised each other, that no matter what, that we'd always be together. it was a promise full of passion, and truth, and wisdom. it was the kind of promise that can only come from the hearts of the very young."

    General CommentThis is just one kick ass song. I love the title. My Very Own Winnie Cooper. To me it seems like he's in love but he can't be with her for some reason and he can't go back as much as he wants to - but he'll never forget her. "you could have been the one" I love that I love everything about this song.

    General CommentI love this song so much.
    Reminds me everytime I listen to it about my ex-girlfriend, the memories we shared and how it all fell to peices.

    She could of been the one.
