Today at work
I overheard a name
I knew it wasn't yours
But it touched me just the same
It felt so good to have you in my mind
I guess I'm the sentimental kind

Chorus: oh, I wonder who you became
Did you change the world
Or play the game
We came so close to love back then
We could have been

You were so brave
When I was sky
I made you laugh
When something made you cry
And I don't think we ever said good-bye
Now I'll always wonder why

(repeat chorus)

Bridge:

A time or two
I thought about calling
But something always gets in the way
Maybe I'm afraid you'd really answer
What would I say to you?

(repeat chorus)
We could have been
