Could Have Been
i didn't mean to fall
i thought i was strong
i thought i was stable
but then i was gone

i didn't mean to tell you
but i guess you just knew
was it something in my eyes?
or was it just you?

it all happened so quickly
i'm up and then i'm down
and when i finally orient myself
you vanish when i turn around

i know we could make something beautiful
but maybe that's just me
you wouldn't even have to ask
i'd give you my love for free

i didn't know it could end so quickly
or that it would feel so bad
i guess you'll be the one that got away
the best i might have had
