Person I Should Have Been [Acoustic Version]
by James Morrison



I’m gonna start again
This world I painted black
Just needs some colour
I’m gonna live my life like the other
Person I should have been

I ain’t tapping out, no no no no
To this dark and twisted dream
That’s kept me living
I pray to my soul
To keep its fire burning
And when it does
I’m gonna let it shine

I’ll make the best of this life I’ve got left
Got no time for no regrets
Gonna show you just what I can be
The person I should have been

And it might take time, take time
'Cause this life has taken it right out of me
I wanna change my perspective of reality
Be a much better version of me
The person I should have been

I make the best of this life I’ve got left
Put my sincerity to the test
Wake up my senses finally
The water washes me clean

What shouldn’t have been has all been done
If I don’t get a grip
Then the world has won
Making me think that I’ll never be
The person I should have been

Who am I now?
A lonely man that’s fallen down
No I can’t change
The past that time has all burned out
But I know somewhere inside of me
Is the person I could have been

Make the best of this life I’ve got left
Got no time for no regrets
Gonna show you just what I can be
The person I should have been

What shouldn’t have been has all been done
If I don’t get a grip
Then the world has won
Making me think that I’ll never be
The person I should have been

I said the person, person I should have been
The person, person I should have been
The person I should have been
I said the person, person I should have been
