(Lois blaisch)

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
They stay with me everywhere

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

Repeat chorus

How could I hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night?

    Loved this, used to sing it to a special person in the summer of '88. When we were forced to be apart. Shouldve been stronger and stood up and fought for what was right.
