Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way

from Bluebird Days II by Scott Cooley



A love lost mid-tempo folk rock ballad featuring piano that expresses thinly-veiled sadness along with hope to get over it and move on.


"Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Holding hands, I never thought you’d let me down

We had plans, but I guess it doesn’t matter now

Tomorrow’s sun will rise just the same

And I wouldn’t have it any other way

Early dawn, I still can’t seem to get you off my mind

But you’re gone, and my memories of you will fade with time

It won’t be long ‘till I’ve forgotten your name

And I wouldn’t have it any other way

I know you'll feel it deep down inside

When you realize you traded me for your pride

And I know it’s gonna make you cry wondering why

It was you, so scared you had to write it in a letter

Now we’re through, and soon I will be feeling much better

Since you didn't want me, I wouldn't want you anyway

Now I wouldn’t have it any other way

I know you'll feel sad for the rest of your life

When you realize you traded true love for strife

And everyday it’ll weigh on your mind as you wonder why

Wasn't me, who couldn't do it face to face

Now I'm free, to heal the wounds from your disgrace

So now I guess there’s nothing more to say

And I wouldn’t have it any other way
