Why didn't I, didn't I?
Why didn't I, why didn't I?
I should've, I should've
I should've, I should've

I should've listened to that little voice inside my head
When I saw her in the study typing on her Mac
The place was packed but I still felt like we were all alone
Then I started to lose my nerve, why am I taking so long?

I had a million questions running up inside my head
Is she lonely? Is she tired? Does she got a man?
What does she wear in bed?
But I just stood there frozen and she got away

It coulda been me and you together walking in the rain
We coulda been making out and making plans to run away
But here I am all alone outside
And I really wanna tell her everything that I was feeling inside

I had an angel by my side
Why didn't I, didn't I?
I had angel by my side

I started to ask around if anyone might know her name
A friend of hers told me that she thought she was single again
That's all the info that I needed to keep hope alive
I searched the dorm and the cafe
And the laundromat and the park and ride

Then one fateful day I saw her at the top of the stairs
So I got up my courage started walking over there
And as I did I saw another guy with his hand in her hair
I guess, I was too late

It coulda been me and you together walking in the rain
We coulda been making out and making plans to run away
But here I am all alone outside
And I really wanna tell her everything that I was feeling inside

I had an angel by my side
Why didn't I, didn't I?
I had angel by my side
And I felt like I could die

Then she turned around, she walked over to me
She said, "I noticed you noticing me"
I said, "Who's the guy?" she said, "Just a friend
And I've been wondering where you've been"
So we walked around and we got to know each other very well that fall

And now it's me and you together walking in the rain
And now we're making out and making plans to run away
I was so alone outside
And I really wanna tell her everything that I was feeling inside

I had an angel by my side
Why didn't I, didn't I?
I had an angel by my side
Why didn't I, didn't I?

I should've, I should've
I should've, I should've, I should've
