We were so close yet so far away
I'd reach out, you'd be gone
Moments that still talk my breath away
There's so much more to life than loving you
You don't need me, no...


I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you


Time washes over, memories
I can't look back no more
Change has forsaken, our promises
There's someone else for you to hold again
So please stop your crying


I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you


Remember, remember, girl I remember
I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you (where are you now)
Should have been you my love (where are you now)
It could have been you my love, (where are you now)
Remember...remember...remember

    I think this is about his real break-up with Sherrie... how sad. Right when his mother died, too, and right when he had to abandon Against The Wall. Why my the good be hassled beyond the limit?
