Coulda Been You
By Charlie Crow

Coulda been you, Babe
With me tonight
Building a fire
Holding me tight
Sharing a lifetime
Turning old into new
Daytime and night time
It coulda been you

Coulda been you, Dear
Dancing with me
But there's someone new now
Who's willing to be
Always beside me
Whatever we do--
But for one broken promise
It coulda been you

Time has gone
To recover love gone wrong
We both regret
What we can't forget

Shoulda been you, Love
Laughin' with me
Bouncin' our baby
Right here on your knee
But keep it in mind, Love
Whatever you do
I'll always remember
It shoulda been you.

(Repeat bridge and V. 3)

Remember forever...
Coulda been you.
