Lyrics:

What Might've Been

Written by: Markus Rill

The days are long since I gave up smokin'
The nights are long since I quit drinkin'
But I won't cry and I can keep from chokin' up
I just can't keep from thinkin' about you

You won't call today and you won't write tomorrow
It's not like I wait
I will hear from you at some point in time, girl, I know
But it will be too late to change the shape we're in
And find out what might've been

Shooting stars and prayers and late night wishes
They rarely work like they're supposed to do
But I don't mind, I just go about my business
Trying to keep from thinkin' about you

You won't call today and you won't swing by tomorrow
It's not like I count the days
I'll run into you somewhere down the line, girl, I know
And it will be too late to change the shape we're in
And find out what might've been

What might've been could've been grand
I could've been your man, I could've held your hand
What might've been, it could've been a disaster
I could've let you down, you just let me down faster

The days are long since I gave up smokin'
The nights are long since I quit drinkin' too
But I won't cry and I can keep from chokin' up
And soon I'll keep from thinkin' about you
Soon I'll keep from thinkin' about what might've been
