There was someone I used to love
A long, long time ago
He found someone before I had
The chance to let him know
And every time I tried to get
My heart to close that door
I'd only think about what could have been
And only love him more
I told a friend how sad I was
The fate was so unfair
This prefect love that could have never been
My heart would never share
Not till summer came and went
Did her advice rig true
When I found out my heart was meant
To fall in love with you
We never know what could have been
But looking back we see
What could have been and never
Was never meant to be
I saw the one I used to love
When I went out today
I said hello, I met his wife
Then I was on my way
It may be luck, it may be fate
It may be God's design
I only know it's no mistake
I'm yours and you are mine
We never know what could have been
But looking back we see
What could have been but never was
Was never meant to be
