I live in a circle
Runnin around and around and around and around
Walk over the wire
Pullin me down and me down and me down
Sink under the water
Fadin away and away and away
Crash into the wall if
Only you stayed if you stayed if you stayed if you stayed
Hey Hey Hey
If only you stayed
Hey Hey Hey

[Chorus]
It coulda been the colour of a carinval
It coulda been the light in the dark
It coulda been the blaze of glory
That keeps us all from falling apart
It coulda been better
It coulda been bigger
Everything that I need
It coulda been me

I stand in the corner
Callin your name and your name and your name and your name
Try tellin myself
I was never to blame and to blame and to blame and to blame
Fall down to my knees
I'm slippin away and away and away and away
Break under the strain if
Only you stayed and you stayed and you stayed
Hey Hey Hey
If only you stayed
Hey Hey Hey

[Chorus]

It coulda been me, it coulda been me, it coulda been me

[Chorus]

It coulda been me, it coulda been me, hey hey hey, it shoulda been me, hey hey hey
