Deborah Cox — It Could've Been You lyrics

Mmmm, mmm

Yeah It could've been you It could've been you Oh hoo

Verse One

Congratulations baby It's been awhile I heard the grapevine That you're seeing a friend of mine I hate to say this baby But I think you should know I hear about how she treats you Everywhere I go

I hear you're runnin', hidin' Trying to be discreat But let me tell ya There's no need for you to hide from me I've found someone who takes my loving seriously You've gambled and lost Baby pay the boss For walking out on me

Chorus

It could've been you Loving me It would have been Everything you wanted a love to be It could've been you (Holding me) Seven days a week Baby if you wanted a real love You should have stayed with me

Verse Two

So here you come talkin' baby With the some old lines You tryin' to break down my defense So you can tell me one more lie But I ain't hearin' it baby Cause you caused me pain, aye This time you've gone too far And now you lost it all on the word

You say you love me But I find it hard to believe It didn't take you that long to get over me Now after all this time You've been trying to get back with me But now the tables have turned And now you're on the outside looking in

Chorus

It could've been you Loving me It would have been Everything you wanted a love to be It could've been you (Holding me) Seven days a week Baby if you wanted a real love You should have stayed with me

It could've been you Loving me It would have been Everything you wanted a love to be It could've been you (Holding me) Seven days a week Baby if you wanted a real love You should have stayed with me

Bridge

I hear she's got you all stressed you It cost you a furtone just to take her out You say she's just taking you for a ride I could've told you so If I had my choice, I would be with you But you could have done much better too And that's what you get for thinking that you could find a better love

Chorus

It could've been you Loving me It would have been Everything you wanted a love to be It could've been you (Holding me) Seven days a week Baby if you wanted a real love You should have stayed with me

It could've been you Loving me It would have been Everything you wanted a love to be It could've been you (Holding me) Seven days a week Baby if you wanted a real love You should have stayed with me

It could've been you Holding me Seven days a week It could've been you Holding me Seven days a week

Chorus

It could've been you Loving me It could've been you It could've been you Loving me It could've been you
