Could've been a politician
Tell people what to do
With intellectual vision
Hell, I could lie to you
Could've been the inspiration
For a love song or a prayer
Maybe start a new religion
Would anybody really care

Could've been, should've been
Could've been me somehow
Could've been, should've been
Could've been me

Well I'm not gonna get caught sittin' about
Waitin' for the world to go 'round
It's gonna be me, gonna be me
Not should've, it's gonna be me
Somehow, yeah yeah, somehow, yeah yeah

Could've been on television
Just one more talking head
Sell you an apparition
Buy this, and you'll wind up dead
If there's a God above
I shouldn't be so bad
It's open to interpretation
The best time that we never had

Could've been, should've been
Could've been me somehow
Could've been, should've been
Could've been me

Well I'm not gonna get caught sittin' about
Waitin' for the world to go 'round
It' gonna be me, gonna be me
Not should've, it's gonna be me
Somehow

You beat yourself up over the thing you say
And someone else is losing their life today
Before you walk away
Start givin it up, livin' it up, 'til you drop, you gotta
Diddle it up, diddle it up, up 'til you - hey - hey

It's gonna be me, gonna be me
I'll promise it's gonna be me
Somehow

Could've been, should've been
Could've been me somehow
Could've been, should've been
Could've been me

Well I'm not gonna get caught sittin' about
Waitin' for the world to go 'round
It's gonna be me, gonna be me
This time it's gonna be me
Somehow, someway, somehow
Somehow, someway

It's gonna be me, gonna be me
Not should've, it's gonna be me
Somehow, someway, somehow
[fading]
