The flowers you gave me
Are just about to die
When I think about
What could've been
It makes me want to cry

The sweet words you whispered
Didn't mean a thing
I guess our song is over
As we begin to sing

Chorus:
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
Could've been my lover
Every day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
I'll never hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night

The memories of our lovin'
Still linger in the air
Like the faded scent of your roses
Stay with me everywhere

Every time I get my hopes up
They always seem to fall
Still what could've been is better than
What could never be at all.. at all

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
Could've been my lover
Every day of my life
Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
You can hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
You can hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night

How can you hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night
