Verse 1
I guess what they say is true I didn't know what I had until I lost you But seeing you with him is clear Cause it was killin' me killin' me Wish I held you closer Then maybe your love would not be over Why didn't I when you were here When were feelin' me feelin' me

Pre-Hook
(I had) Everything I wanted I was blind and I couldn't see That it was the future that was standin right in front of me Now you're looking at him the way that you used to look at me Now I realize

Chorus
When you were mine I should've told you that you're beautiful When you were mine Should never let you feel invisible When you were mine Tried to be a player but I dropped the ball If I could rewind back to the time When you were mine Would never ever never let you go When you were mine Could've been so good but now we'll never know It kills me inside To know our story will remain untold How could I tell you goodbye When you were mine

Verse 2
As I watch you walk away The part of me dies inside I cannot hide I cannot lie to you Can't see myself with someone new (What am I gonna do gonna do) The mistakes that I made Are slappin' me in the face I'm feelin' so outta place Something's you just can't replace

Pre-Hook
(I had) Everything I wanted I was blind and I couldn't see That it was the future that was standin' right in front of me Tell me do you remember how you always used to look at me Back when you were mine

Chorus (2x)
When you were mine I should've told you that you're beautiful When you were mine Should never let you feel invisible When you were mine Tried to be a player but I dropped the ball If I could rewind back to the time When you were mine Would never ever never let you go When you were mine Could've been so good but now we'll never know It kills me inside To know our story will remain untold How could I tell you goodbye When you were mine
