Songs: It Could Have Been

notes / gigs / releases

I saw a film today, oh boy
A figure on the screen that gave me pause for thought
The storyline reminds me of the life and times of someone I knew
And the costumes did too
And though the heroine
Was an American

She could have been you
She should have been you
It could have been me too
It should have been me and you, up there on the screen
But we never got a chance to do Adventurous Things
We just passed on by, like those ships in the night with our sails too tight
Paddling frantically
While our crews drank all the rum that they had, too bad
It could have been great - yes I guess it's too late, but it could have been great

And it could have been you
It should have been you
It could have been me too
It should have been me and you, walking off into the sun
But that's not how our story begun, and I doubt that that's how it'll end
Because now we're all just good friends
Acting sensibly
But it could have gone differently

It could have been me
It could have been you and me, living happy ever actively
Making our love in the sand that all falls through my hand
And the seeds that we sow are unlikely to grow
But it needn't be true, it could all have borne fruit
And it could have been you
It should have been you
It could have been me too
It should have been me and you

Another "experiment" in Being LOOSE With The Structure which went so far that it was impossible for the BAND to actually play. I quite like it, I must say, especially the bass line, which got LIFTED and used again for the verses of "Things'll Be Different". Those rather frightening attempts at high notes were also EXPERIMENTAL, honest.
