Shoulda Woulda Coulda

 Should’ve made it clear
Would’ve washed it all away
Could’ve been just another thing
But then there wouldn’t be a song to sing.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda
Paints the past with a brush that was never meant to last.
Should’ve seen your crazy
Would’ve went the other way
Could’ve called your bluff
I guess I just can’t ever get enough.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda
Frays the moral fabric in the forgiven footprint of forever.
Should’ve kept you safe
Would’ve held your hand
Could’ve carried you all the way home
But I looked around and found you gone.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda
Always puts perspective beneath the purpose of the present.
Should’ve said it sideways
Would’ve whispered the wanted truth
Could’ve kept it hidden from you
But then you lost your shoe and you seemed a little blue.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda
Never did a damn thing
Except manifest into your wildest dream.
