This Is What You Could've Had

This Is What You Could've Had - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

All the people scream so loud

My sweat drips down onto the stage

As I search for your face in the crowd

I relive the memories in your stare

I hear our songs of love, regret, and rage

Drifting through the thick basement air

And I can still taste the pain in how good it felt

I played all my cards, but your love wasn't in the hand that I was dealt

 

You’re the one I could’ve had

But now your melody just drives me mad

And I guess there’s no escape

I can’t live without you either way

Well, don’t you worry, I’ll be fine, just hope your appetite’s been fed

Please have mercy you have ruled my heart too many nights

Need a new love to fill my head

 

I can finally stick it to you now

Now I can turn the page

And I will find a way to stop you from haunting me somehow

And I won't live in your undertow

No, I won't die in your cage

Don't forget the choice you made when I'm kissing someone else after the show

 

This is what you could've had

But now my melodies just drive you mad

Darling there is no escape

You can't live without me either way

Don’t you worry, I’m not hanging on the empty words you said

(Don’t you worry, hanging on the empty words)

I’m not sorry you had every chance to make me yours

(I’m not sorry, every chance to make me yours)

Need a new love to fill my head

 

Oh, no

Say hello to your man for me

Hope he's got what it takes to be

All the things that you didn't see in me

In me

 

Oh, this is what you could've had

(Could’ve had)

But now my melodies just drive you mad

(Imma drive you mad)

Darling there is no escape

(No escape)

You can't live without me either way

(Either way)

Don't you worry I will find the perfect girl to fill my bed

(Don’t you worry, find the perfect girl to fill my bed)

I hope she'll hurry you have wrecked my mind for far too long

(Hope she’ll hurry, wrecked my mind, far too long)

I need a new love to fill my head
