What I Could Have Been

She was a dancer

and I was a fool

to think love can wait

with her feet flying off the floor

We checked the pulse 

and common love

wouldn't make it this far

but the beat is slow and fading fast

Now the signal is weak

as she calls me on the phone

if my heart were a sail 

and my blood was the wind

I would fly my way to you

Well is it true

that you gave in to what had started

and that you saw me

for what I could've been

well heaven can wait by the car

while we go dancing

cause there's better love

that we can chase 

I hope you're on your way

The more you gave me 

I couldn't do the same for you

my mind was tired

from the thoughts I have

So put on your best dress

and go to the show

and meet your lovely

eyes on the lights and let it go

Cause when your heart is

trying to find out who it can love

and there are so many faces

on these streets but

none of them look like home

Is it true

that you gave in to what had started

and that you saw me

for what I could've been

well heaven can wait by the car

while we go dancing

cause there's better love

that we can chase 

I hope you're on your way
