we could've wrestled under the stars

caught fish by the chilled pool

and shared ghost stories by light of candle

had it have been some other time

we would've been friends

we would've raced against the setting sun

conducted experiments on fireflies

and skipped pebbles across the bay

if it were some other place

we could've been friends

we should've painted the town with eggs

saw who's swing could touch the sky first

and turned to each other when there was no one

but fate is not always kind

and destiny unchangeable

we should have been friends
