I Couldve Been

I could've been a cheerleader,
I could've been a Wal-Mart greeter.
I could've been a magazine editor,
I could've been an intimidator.
I could've been a doctor or nurse,
I could've been a shaman and put you under a curse.
I could've been a litigater,
I could've been a participater.
I could've been a cook,
I could've published a book.
I could've been a pilot,
I could've learned to cook shalots.
I could've been a gambler,
I could've been a rambler.
I could've been a rockstar,
I could've driven for Nascar.
I could've climbed a mountain,
I could've designed marble fountains.
I could've been a model, a real beauty,
I could've been a pirate and collected booty.
I could've been an architect,
I could've been an intellect.
I could've been a singer,
I could've been a spirit and lingered.
I could've been a beauty queen,
I could've been a mermaid so beautiful and serene.
I could've been a contender,
I could've been a pretender.
I could've been a psychiatrist,
I could've been a philanthropist.
I could've been a show girl,
I could've given acting a whirl.
I could've been a writer,
I could've been a fire fighter.
I could've seen the world,
But then I wouldn't be your girl.
If I had been any of these things,
I would've missed the happiness you bring.
If God had answered any of these prayers, he would've missed the best,
Because he knew I could live without the rest.
He knew you were the best thing for me,
Because you were the only one who could see,
Just how good I could be,
And that's why He sent you to love me!
