lyrics

The schoolboy sits in his room, awake
In the early morning darkness
And he thinks of six years wasted
Of smiles unnoticed
And work unrewarded
And now it's graduation day
They'll lose me forever.

Could have been
Could have been
Could have been
They'll lose me forever.

The young man sits in his room, awake
In the early morning darkness
And he thinks of six years wasted
Of love unrequited
Of gestures unwanted
Of smiles unnoticed
And work unrewarded
And now she wants to go away
She'll lose me forever.

Might have been
Might have been
Might have been
She'll lose me forever.

The old man sits in his room, awake
In the early morning darkness
And he thinks of a lifetime wasted
Of projects unfinished
Of promise unrealized
Of questions unanswered
Of warnings unheeded
Of love unrequited
Of gestures unwanted
Of smiles unnoticed
And work unrewarded

Can anyone tell me, now, what good is it
Turning shit into gold when the world wants shit?
To be someone or no one - I don't know what's worse
When potential's a burden, and talent's a curse
And she'll never hear
She'll never hear this song

Should have been
Should have been
Should have been
You've lost me forever.
