Could've Been

by: Tiffany

INTRO: [Csus-C-sus-C]

[      Csus       C]
The flowers you gave me
[     C7            F]
Are just about to die
[        Dm                 C]
When I think about what could've been
[ Dm              G]
Makes me want to cry
[     Csus            C]
The sweet words you whispered
[C7            F]
Did it mean a thing?
[   Dm                G]
I guess our song is over
[Dm      G]
As we begin to sing.

[F                 C]
Could've been so beautiful
[ Dm       G         C]
Could've been so right
[ F                C]
Could've been my lover
[ Dm         G]
Ev'ryday of my life.
[ F               C]
Could've been so beautiful
[ E       E/Ab   Am,Am+M7,Am7,Am6]
Could've been so right
[ F ]
(I'll never know/You can't know)
       [C]
 what could've been
[      Dm       G      C]
On a cold and lonely night.

[    Csus            C]
The mem'ries of our lovin'
[     C7             F]
Still linger in the air
[        Dm             G]
Like the faded scent of your roses
[ C]
Stays with ev'rywhere

BRIDGE:
[     Am                 Am+M7]
Ev'rytime I give my hopes up
[       Am7           Am6]
They always seem to fall
[            Dm]
So what could've been
[        Dm+M7            Dm7         Cdim]
Is better than what can never be at all
      [Dm-G]
At all --

(Repeat chorus except last word)
          (Ad lib)
   ...night.

AD LIB: [F-C-Dm-G-C]
        [F-C-Dm-G]

(Repeat last 3 lines of chorus except last word)
        [Am]
   ...night.
   [Am+M7          Am7]
   No you won't no you won't.

CODA:
[ F                       C]
How can you know what could've been
[      Dm         G       Csus-C]
On a cold and lonely night.
