Corey Smith - Could Have Been Friends

rate me

There's a picture my mama kept in a drawer<br />

She pulled it out of the trash after I said we were over for sure<br />

She must have known that one day the heartache would end<br />

I'd come to terms with the past and wanna' see that picture again<br />

<br />

Turns out Mama was right<br />

'Cause I'm wonderin' about you tonight<br />

Senior prom in the palm of my hand<br />

Wishin' we could have been friends<br />

<br />

We took a chance one night on the hood of my car<br />

Couldn't hold back anymore though you swore we'd never go that far<br />

But playin' it safe never felt nearly as good<br />

As playin' those games in the dark, pushin' you as far as I could<br />

<br />

Maybe it was a mistake<br />

Stealin' all of the love I could make<br />

And this hurtin' is the price for the sin<br />

Yeah, I wish we just could have been friends<br />

<br />

The last word you heard was far from the truth<br />

The cruelest thing I'd ever spoken<br />

And there's no way to tell you how sorry I am<br />

'Cause every bond has been broken<br />

Yeah, the loose ends are choking me now<br />

<br />

Life's been good to me and I'm sure it's been good to you<br />

I found a true love and heard that you did, too<br />

Now you're up in Manhattan, the big city sure suits you well<br />

Well, I'm still in this small town but I'm making a name for myself<br />

<br />

There's no shadow of a doubt<br />

Honey, we would have never worked out<br />

It was all for the best in the end<br />

Still, I wish we could have been friends<br />

Oh, I wish we could have been friends<br />

I wish we could have been<br />

<br />

There's a picture my mama kept in a drawer<br />

I stumbled across it and I can't bear to look at it no more
