I close my eyes and what do I see?
I see myself just looking at me
I am full of regret and sadness too
on what could have been, had I not listened to you
I imagine myself with flashing lights
Going on to endless flights
Traveling on to places unknown
Hidden treasures found in the coves
This is my own 'should have been'
If I had known how to say no
I ponder these questions alone at night
Would I have been happy? would I have been nice?
I sleep with regret and tears fly by my eyes
My own 'could have been' how sweet it would be
For these are my dreams and only mine to own
Because, Father I should have said how I don't want to go
But no I am to busy accomplishing your dreams
Things would have been different had I listened to me
