The Eyeliners – It Could Have Been You lyrics

You were walking by
You were looking so sly
With a cigarette
When you caught my eye

It was love at first sight
And I was hypnotized
But nothing ever materialized

I kept it all inside
Held my feeling in disguise
And I know this much is true
That you never knew
That it could have been you

Well I guess you never knew
That it could have been you

I saw you sitting there
Didn't have a care
Black leather jacket and purple hair
Wanted to ask you out
But I walked away
Cause I didn't know what I could say

Now I think back to that day
Could things have gone a different way?
But I know this much is true
You never had a clue
That it could've been you


It could have been...
A perfect match to go down in history
Better than sid and nancy
A love to last 'til the end of time
My punk rock valentine
I could've been yours
And you could've been mine
Will there ever be a next time?

Is there such a thing as destiny?
Will we ever be a reality?
All that could have been
All that may never be
Is this the end of our story?

They say all things fade away
Another guy will come my way
But I've never seen anyone like you
And you never knew
That it could have been you
