How Could I Have Been So Wrong?

(for female voice)

 

VERSE 1        Now that the last glass is emptied

                        Now that the last song is sung

                        I wake up – oh, what a mess

                        My best chance of happiness is gone

 

LIFT 1             Every day I ask myself why

                        Every night I shake my head and sigh

 

CHORUS        Oh, how could I have been so –

                        I thought for sure I’d win, so

                        How could I have been so wrong?

 

VERSE 2         Maybe he didn’t know his feelings

                        Maybe he knew them all too well

                        He loved me, I could have sworn

                        But I slept right through every warning bell

 

LIFT 2             The times we had, nothing compares

                        Yeah I know, life just isn’t fair

 

CHORUS        But how could I have been so –

                        I thought for sure I’d win, so

                        How could I have been so wrong?

 

BRIDGE         To laugh and sing and cry with him

                        You ask why I care; you had to be there

                        Love was worth a try with him

                        Worth risking it all; taking the fall

 

VERSE 3         God knows I never gave up trying

                        And I know I never gave up hope

                        One day I’ll leave this all behind

                        For now I’ll just maybe kind of cope

 

LIFT 3             Still I sit and ask myself why

                        Even now my heart lets out this cry

 


CHORUS        Oh, how could I have been so –

                        I thought for sure I’d win, so

                        How could I have been so –

                        I knew for sure I’d win, so

                        How could I have been so –

                        Oh, will I ever win, oh

                        How could I have been so wrong – for so long?

                        How could I have been so wrong?
