Had It All

Why'd I have to go and be a fool again?
Why'd I have to go and make a big thing outta nothing?

I didn't know what I had 'til you were gone
It was right in front of me all along
And now those days of the same old story
Are feelin' more like faded glory

I had it all, I threw it all aside
Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
I had it all, baby, 'til you went away

Blue skies, sunshine, and butterflies
Those were the conditions that I left behind
Why did I let it go to waste? I had it all

So where are all the fireworks I thought I'd see?
I still haven't found the magic I was lookin' for that made me leave
Oh no, I traded in my comfort zone
For empty nights of bein' alone

I had it all, I threw it all aside
Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
I had it all, baby, 'til you went away

Blue skies, sunshine, and butterflies
Those were the conditions that I left behind
Why did I let it go to waste?

Why did I believe that little voice
That led me down the path to this bad choice?
Why don't I listen to the angels when they sing?
Oh yeah, they sing, oh yeah, oh

I had it all, I threw it all aside
Thinkin' there was more there I needed to find
I had it all, baby, 'til you went away

Blue skies, sunshine, and butterflies
Those were the conditions that I left behind
Why did I let it go to waste? I had it all
Why did I let it go to waste? I had it all

Why'd I have to go and be a fool again?
