Lyrics

Could Be

 

This song could be about love but it's not

‘Cause you didn't check in his baggage, he had cash and he really looked hot

This song could be about your happiness

But you're so focused on his bait you’re gonna let a good catch get away

This song could be about how we first met

But how we gonna reminisce when you haven't got over him yet

This song could be about what you're searching for

You're looking all over town and I'm knocking on your front door

This could be

 

Chorus 1

(This Could Be) It could be about us

(This Could Be) All about us, yeah

But it ain't gonna be about us

(This Could Be)

 

Verse 2

This song could be about our wedding day

But you had to go to see him.  That decision left me in dismay

This song shouldn't be about when I got your call

Saying you weren't ready for marriage, that you couldn't commit at all

This song should be about our happy years

Instead it's about when he hurt you, I was there to dry your tears 

This song could be about how I'm not around

See, I came to my senses putting my feet back on the ground

 

Chorus 2

(This could be) It could be about us

(This could be) All about us, yeah

But it ain't gonna be about us

(This could be)

 

Change

If I cried for you one more time

Somebody'd stick a fork in me

My friends say I was blind to

Lay it all on the line for you

But you didn't care, so I felt like a fool

But I'm not a fool, I'm not a fool

 

Chorus 2--2X

I'm gonna write this song, sing about how you did me wrong.  About us - all about us

 

Now this song could be about us - but it's not.
