I could’ve been a dreamer
I ended up a schemer
I ended up a hard-nosed man
I should’ve been a writer
I ended up a fighter
With some hard made plans
I should’ve been your lover
I ended up another
And it makes no sense

Cause I should’ve just been home loving you

I ended up angry
I wanted you to thank me
But it all went wrong
I’m fighting with my ego
Baby where did we go
Cause I’m so alone
I know I treat you badly
I want to love you madly
And it makes no sense

So I’m gonna come on home straight to you

Girl I want you to teach me
Baby you can reach me
I’ll be a better man
I want to be your lover
Don’t want to be another
Want you to understand
I’ll write you a letter
It’ll say I’ll treat you better
And that I promise you

That I’m gonna stay on here next to you
And baby that’s what I intend to do

Cause baby you’re my sweetheart
Why did ever we part?
Why did you have to go?
You were my best friend
And our love will never lessen
It was just too strong
That you’re in a better place now
Is the only way I’ll face how
That you died too young

And now I’ll just keep on loving you
Cause that’s the only thing that I can do
