Could Have Been You

Joss Stone


Oh it's a shame
We used to be so tight
Tell me what's your game
Since you left me outside
I'm gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back uh uh
When I think about it
I'm better off without it

There is no gain
Only pain
And my heart cant take the strain
I can't sit on the shelf
I'll give my love to someone else

If you see me walking by
Hand in hand with another guy
Know that it's true uh uh
It could've been you uh uh

If you'd only treated me right
Out of sight baby, out of mind
That's what you do uh uh
It could've been you uh uh

Don't wanna wait for what you promised me
Like a train delayed forever, so it seems
I'm gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back uh uh
When I think about it
I'm better off without it

There's no gain
Only pain
My heart can't take the strain
I can't sit
On the shelf
I'll give my love to someone else

If you see me walking by
Hand in hand with another guy
Know that it's true
It could've been you
If you'd only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That's what you do
It could have been you

You could've been
My first, my last, forever
You held it in your hands
My heart, my treasure
The proof is in the memories
So sad to know that's all that's left for you is
What could have been

Well It's a shame
We used to be so tight
Tell me what is your game
It could have been you
Treated me right
Baby out of mind, that's what you do
It could've been you

If you see me walking by
Hand in hand with another guy
Know that it's true
It could've been you
If you'd only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That's what you do
It could have been you

I wish you never messed it up
How you gonna mess it up
Baby if you'd only
It could've been you
It could have been
Some say it should have been... You
Forget you baby
