I could have been an angel looking over y’all
I could have been a high-wire dancer
With no one to catch me if I fall
I could have been a heavenly host
Telling the story of a ghost but I chose you

I could have been a wizard with a big book of spells
I could have been a diva or a farmer in the dell
I could have had a luxury car
Or been a maid working at a bar but I chose you

I could have been a doctor to ease your belly ache
I could have been a lady of the night hiding from the daybreak
I could have been a Mademoiselle
Or a little girl at show and tell but I chose you

In a dream I had last night
I was working towards you, shining light
If I fall for you before I wake
Then bless your soul this love I’ll take it

I could have been an eagle flying faster than a car
I could have been a minister or maybe a movie star
But I don’t want to be anything
So, baby, I chose you, I chose you, I chose you
