It Could Have Been Me

I guess it's over, the comedy has been played
But I'm not laughing at all the mistakes I've made
Now it makes me shout, crying out like a scratched up record forever
Nobody wants to hear

That it could have been me
It could have been me holding her tight
It should have been me
And not him

I've been a loser but never as bad as this
And I've been sold out but never by just one kiss
Every night I cry when the TV dies with a word of salvation
Nothing can save me now

But it could have been me
It could have been me holding her tight
It should have been me
And not him

But me, I could be making love with you
Like in all of my dreams

I guess it's over, the greatest story that never was
Just hope he needs her as much as she thinks she does
Me, I'm still alive on account I've swallowed all the bitter pills
Maybe he'll echo the words I say

That it could have been me
It could have been me holding her tight
It should have been me
And not him
