Far across the room you see her;

The eyes and hair of an angel

Yet you don’t speak to her

The few moments you have.

She could have been the one for you

The answer to everything you seek

She could have been the one that loves you

More than anything or anyone ever has.

 

You sit in a meeting and talk to her

Everything about her does stuff to you

That you don’t even understand.

Yet you say nothing to her

Don’t even let on that she makes you want to live.

She could have been your one last chance

The moment you decide to just live life.

She could have been your dream come true

The reason you wake up every morning.

 

You ring up her purchases and ask for the money

When she hands it to you, and her hand brushes yours

You instantly feel something inside of you

Something makes you want to take her into your arms

And never let her go.

She could have been your dream come true

The moment in your life when it all makes sense

She could have been the mother of your children

The one you grow old with.

 

You read a book about taking a chance

Feel it all well up inside of you

So you ask the very next woman you see out

She says no

So you give up.

The very next woman

Could have been waiting for you

Hoping you would finally notice

That she’s been there all along.

She could have been your everything

Your one desire.

She could have been the future you want.

 

If only you would have taken that chance.
