Lyrics

If I knew where lovebirds go
when they go south and never come home
If I knew I'd already be gone
but I'm stuck here tryin' to find love
in a country song

If I knew a road to take
that wasn't paved with my own mistakes
If I knew I'd be out the door
'cause every time I get a little bit of love
I want a little bit more

I could've been a sailor, could've been a saint
Could've been a painter but I had nothin' to paint
Should've had a part in you Broadway show
(I never even got a cameo)

Could've had silver, guess I got tin
Now I got nothin' but the clothes I'm in
I could've done right with your help
But look how I've done wrong
All by myself.

If I knew where lovebirds lay
with their valentines
(they even got their own day!)

You'd better believe I'd never forget
But I'm stuck here dreamin' of the love
that I never met.

I could've been a sailor, could've been a saint
Could've been a painter but I had nothin' to paint
Should've had a part in you Broadway show
(I never even got a cameo)

Singin' like a fool, tryin' to make you laugh
I couldn't even get your autograph
Sometimes I wonder if I'm ever gonna know
Come on and tell me where the lovebirds go

Could've had silver, guess I got tin
Now I got nothin' but the clothes I'm in
I could've done right with your help
But look how I've done wrong
All by myself.
