COULD HAVE BEEN

A stone`s throw away from settlement
Just a blink short and surely we could mend
But then it all fell apart,
Tore up my hopeful heart.

Just a handshake to heal the harried core
Two souls beside the ocean shore
Were eager to work real hard
to set off a brand new start
but then it all fell apart.

Could Have Been Endless Nights
Could Have Been Sweet
Could Have Been Wuthering Heights
Would Have Been so Neat

Could Have Been The World For Us
Could Have Been Late Hours
Would Have Ended All Mistrusts
Could Have been Ours

Could Have Been Happiness
Could Have Been ....
Could Have Been Truth and Caress
Could Have Been All That

I walked past the house along the beach
The one we spend summers out of reach
I Return every now and then
But it hurts coming back again

In Hindsight it all becomes so clear
Now I know that was nothing we should fear
But Then It All Fell Apart
Left Me With A Bleeding Heart

Could Have Been Endless Nights
Could Have Been Sweet
Could Have Been Wuthering Heights
Would Have Been so Neat

Could Have Been The World For Us
Could Have Been ....
Would Have Ended All Mistrusts
Could Have been ....

Could Have Been Happiness
Could Have Been ....
Could Have Been Truth and Caress
Could Have Been All That

Opportunities have come and passed.
No matter how I wish that it would last.
I am left aching for another chance
All Things that could have been
They lie in the past
