Well it must have been good
'Cos you said it was love
I guess that day you left me
It wasn't good enough
Now you're calling my number
Say you wanna come back Oh baby, baby, it's too late for that
'Cos when you see me there'll be somebody new by my side
Somebody who is sure he is mine

When you see the smile on his face
Just remember baby
Could've been you, could've been you
When he's standing there in your place
I hate to say it baby
Could've been you, could've been you

Guess I should have been cool
Maybe I was too kind
When loving me was easy
You were hard to find
And when I cried over you baby
How the tear drops burned
Oh baby, baby, now the tables turned
So if those tears start falling
When you see us walking by
I hope you won't forget who said goodbye

When you see the smile on his face
Just remember baby
Could've been you, could've been you
When he's standing there in your place
I hate to say it baby
Could've been you, could've been you

Should've been you
But you threw it all away
Oh Could've been you Standing here today
Could've been you baby
So if those tears start falling
When you see us walking by
I hope you won't forget who said goodbye
You said goodbye
When you see the smile on his face
Just remember baby
Could've been you, could've been you
When he's standing there in your place
I hate to say it baby
Could've been you, could've been you

    General CommentI love this song! It's about a girl being dumped by her boyfriend, and then moving on and finding someone better. Eventually her old boyfriend realizes the mistake he made and he wants her back. She doesn't want, or need, him now, though, and she laughs in his face. In order to spite him she makes sure he sees her with her new boyfriend, and says that he could have been the one to put the huge smile on her face that she now has, but he gave her up. Big mistake ;)
