Could Have Been You

Could Have Been You
performed live by Joss Stone in Paris

Well it’s a shame
We used to be so tight
Tell me what’s your game
Since you left me outside
I’m gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back
Ooh, ooh, when I think about it
I’m better off without it
There’s no gain
Only pain
My heart can’t take the strain
I can’t sit
On the shelf
I’ll give my love to someone else
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
Don’t wanna wait
For what you promised me
Like a train: delayed
Forever so it seems
I’m gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back
Ooh, ooh, when I think about it
I’m better off without it
There’s no gain
Only pain
My heart can’t take the strain
I can’t sit
On the shelf
I’ll give my love to someone else
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
You could have been
My first, my last, forever
You held it in your hands
My heart, my treasure
The proof is in the memories
So sad to know that’s all that’s left for you is
What could have been..
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
Forget you, babe

Foundations

Foundations
by Kate Nash

Thursday night,
everything’s fine,
Except you’ve got that look in your eyes,
when I’m telling a story
And you find it boring you’re thinking of something to say.
You’ll go along with and then drop it
And you humiliate me, in front of our friends.

Then I’ll use that voice what you find annoyin’
And say something like
“intelligent input darlin’ why don’t you just have another beer then?”

Then you call me a bitch and everyone we’re with will be embarrassed,
and I won’t give a shit.

[Chorus:]
My fingertips are holding onto the
cracks in our foundations,
and I know that I should let go,
but I can’t.
And everytime we fight I know it’s not right,
everytime that you’re upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can’t.

You said I must eat so many lemons,
’cause I am so bitter.
I said “I’d rather be with your friends mate,
’cause they are much fitter”

Yes it was childish
and you got aggressive
and I must admit that I was a bit scared,
but it gives me thrills to wind you up.

[Chorus]

Your face is pasty,
’cause you’ve gone and got so wasted,
what a surprise,
don’t want to look at your face,
’cause it’s making me sick.

You’ve gone and got sick on my trainers,
I only got these yesterday.
Oh my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this.

Well I’ll leave you there till the mornin’,
and I purposely won’t turn the heating on
and dear God, I hope I’m not stuck with this one.

[Chorus]

And every time we fight I know it’s not right,
every time that you’re upset and I smile.
I know I should forget, but I can’t.
