Tiffany -
Could've Been
1988
----------------------------------

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 began to sing

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 fainted scent of your roses
They 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't hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night

Could've been so beautiful
Could've been so right
You can't hold what could've been
On a cold and lonely night.
No, not at all

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