    And the very saddest part is that I chose it on my own
    I let him run my thoughts around to streets I'd never known
    He drove me to distraction but I gave him all the keys
    He drove me from my sanity and quickly to my knees

    And the very saddest moment was the moment of goodbye
    I knew I had just let him go without a decent try
    He wore me while I shimmered and discarded me at last
    He wore me out with overuse and then our times were past

    And of all sad words of tongue or pen,
    The saddest ones are these, "It might have been"

    And the very saddest memory is all I didn't say
    And all the things I could have done that somehow got away
    I cannot blame him half as much as I must blame my fear
    It's all that makes me want to die and all that keeps me here

    And the very saddest story is to say it might have been
    And if we never try at all we never have to win
    The losing is much easier, it's only fear and pain
    If I win once it only means I have to win again

    And of all sad words of tongue or pen,
    The saddest ones are these, "It might have been" (X2)
