Shoulda Woulda Coulda

People say that together we were both sides of the same coin
That we would shine like Venus in a clear night sky
We thought our love could overcome the circumstances
But my ambition wouldn't allow for compromise

I could see in the distance all the dreams that were clear to me
And every choice that I had to make left you on your own
Somehow the road we started down had split asunder
Too late to realize how far apart we'd grown.

And how I wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more
Now "Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
And I wonder, wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do
"Shoulda woulda coulda" are the last words of a fool

People ask how it feels to live the kind of life others dream about
I tell them everybody gotta face their highs and their lows
And in my life there's a love I put aside,
Cause I was busy loving something else
And so for every little thing you hold on to,
You've got to let something else go

How I wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more
Now "Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
And I wonder, wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do
"Shoulda woulda coulda" are the last words of a-

Fool if I would now forsake the opportunities are fate
I know I'm right where I belong
But sometimes when I'm not that strong I..

Wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more
Now "Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
And I wonder, wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do
"Shoulda woulda coulda" are the last words of a fool

And how I wish I, wish I'd done a little bit more
Now "Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
And I wonder, wonder what I'm gonna do

"Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
"Shoulda woulda coulda," means I'm out of time
"Shoulda woulda coulda", can't change your mind
Can't change your mind
