We Could Have It All

Written by Pink, Greg Kurstin, Beck Hanson


There were no black cats in our path
I’ve been side-stepping cracks in the pavement
Everybody thought we would be the ones to have it all
I could be the one, we could be the ones to have it

First envy then comes shame
Then secrets and then blame
The quiet resignation on your face
You’ve spoken all your truths
You’re shaken and you’re bruised
There’s nothin’ left to prove

CHORUS
Always, always we could be
What you promised me
So close, so close weren’t we
We almost had it
Always, always
You can get what you want but not what you need
Someday, someday you and me
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all

There were no second thoughts in my head
There were no monsters underneath our beds
Everybody thought we would be the ones to have it all
We could have been the ones
I should have been the one to have it

First envy then comes shame
Then secrets and then blame
The quiet resignation on your face
You’ve spoke all your truths
You’re shaken and you’re bruised
There’s nothin’ left to prove

CHORUS
Always, always we could be
What you promised me
So close, so close weren’t we
We almost had it
Always, always
You can get what you want but not what you need
Someday, someday you and me
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all

We got nothin’ left to lose
We got nothin’ left to prove
You and I know the truth
There was nothin’ else that we could do

CHORUS
Always, always we could be
What you promised me
So close, so close weren’t we
We almost had it
Always, always
You can get what you want but not what you need
Someday someday you and me
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all
