What Could Have Been

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

I’LL ALWAYS MISS WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
AND ALL THE THINGS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
WHEN I AM GONE FROM HERE
IF LOOKING BACK UPON THIS LIFE
IS POSSIBLE BEYOND THIS LIFE
THE ONE THING THAT I FEAR
IS MISSING YOU
AND MISSING US
AND ALL THE JOYS GONE UP IN SMOKE
YES THE ONE THING THAT I FEAR
IS MISSING ALL THE YEARS AHEAD

AND ALL THE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN
WHEN THINGS COME TO AN END

I’VE NO REGRETS OF DAYS GONE BY
I’VE LET LIVE THE LIFE I’VE LED
MY ONE REGRET IS MISSING YOU
AND THE THINGS THAT LIE AHEAD
ANOTHER NIGHT SLEEPING NEXT TO YOU
YOUR CROOKED SMILE AND YES YOUR TEARS
THE PRIMATIVE AND COMPLEX OF YOU
THE CAVITY AND CONVEX OF YOU
I’VE LOVED SO ALL THESE YEARS

WHEN I AM GONE AND BROOD UPON
WHAT FEW MEN COMPREHEND
I’LL QUESTION THEN WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
AND JUST WHY IT HAD TO END
