Today at work I overheard a name
I knew it wasn't yours but it touched me just the same
It felt so good to have you in my mind
I guess I'm the sentimental kind

I wonder who you became
Did you change the world
Or play the game
We came so close to love back then
We could have been

You were so brave when I was shy
I made you laugh when something made you cry
And I don't think we ever said goodbye
Now I'll always wonder why

A time or two
I thought about calling
But something always gets in the way
Maybe I'm afraid you'd really answer
What would I say to you

I wonder who you became
Did you change the world
Or play the game
We came so close to love back then
We could have been

We could have been
