Lyrics:

I Could Have Loved You Better

VERSE:
I don't mean to trouble you,
But it's getting hard to sleep,
Could be the moon, could be the stars,
Restless in their keep;

VERSE:
Truth is, I've been thinking
Of some good way to start,
Seems I've forgotten how to talk to you,
We've been so long apart;

CHORUS (ONE):
My words, they were cruel,
But my thoughts were kind,
I could have loved you better,
If only I could've got you off my mind;

VERSE:
I was just a child,
When I stepped under your spell,
I never knew my own strength,
Till I saw how hard you fell;

VERSE:
The nearer I tried to hold you,
The further I pushed you away,
Still I swore I would tear that sky down,
If I couldn't make you stay;

CHORUS (TWO):
My feet, they were steady,
But the path was blind,
I couldn't see I was leaving you,
So far behind;

CHORUS (ONE):
My words, they were cruel,
But my thoughts were kind,
I could have loved you better,
I could have loved you better,
If only I could've got you off my mind.
