Could Have Been You

Could Have Been You

Joss Stone

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

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 (ooh ooh)
It could have been you
If you'd only treated me right
Out of sight, baby, out of mind
That's what you do (ooh ooh)
Could have been you (ooh ooh)

Huh huh huh huh
Huh huh huh (ooh ooh oh)
Huh huh huh huh
Huh huh

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

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 (ooh ooh)
It could have been you
If you'd only treated me right
Out of sight, baby, out of mind
That's what you do (ooh ooh)
Could have been you (ooh ooh)

You could of been me my first, my last, forever
You had it in your hands, my heart, my treasure
The proof is in the memories
So sad to know this song was meant for you and me
What could have been
Ooh

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

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

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