What Could of Been Love (From the album "Music From Another Dimension")
--------------------------------------
Doing most of this from memory but it should give you a pretty good start
on the song. Also the F# at the end of the first chorus sounds like it 
degrades to an F#m, however you could probably still use an A chord and get
away with it. The G#m in the chorus also feels a bit rough but you can play
around with it and find some variation that fits the bill.

Verse 1:
  D                      G                     Bm             
I wake up and wonder how everything went wrong.
   A            G 
Am I the one to blame?
  D                          G                   Bm  
I gave up and left you for a nowhere-bound train.
         A                  G
Now that train has come and gone.
  Em                        Bm 
I close my eyes and see you lying in my bed.
    D       A               G
And I still dreamed of that day.


Chorus:
E                    G#m 
What could have been love,
                     F#m                 B                  E
Should have been the only thing that was ever meant to be.
             G#m                   A                 B      E 
Didn't know, couldn't see what was right in front of me.
                 G#m                 F#m            B                     C#m
And now that I'm alone all I have is emptiness that comes from being free.
                     B               F#  
What could have been love will never be.


Verse 2:
   D                               G
An old friend who told me that you found somebody new.
Bm         A              G
Oh, you're finally moving on.
    D                          G
You think that I'd be over you after all these years.
Bm        A                  G#m
Yeah, but time has proved me wrong.
                         G
'Cause I'm still holdin' on.


Chorus:
E                    G#m 
What could have been love,
                     F#m                 B                  E
Should have been the only thing that was ever meant to be.
             G#m                   A                 B                       E 
Didn't know, couldn't see what was right in front of me. (What could of been love)
                 G#m                 F#m            B                     C#m
And now that I'm alone all I have is emptiness that comes from being free.
                     B               A 
What could have been love will never be.


Bridge:
F#m                          C#m
We've gone our separate ways. Say goodbye to another day.
F#m                                  C#m
I still wonder where you at. Are you too far from turning back?
D                                        B
You were slipping through my hands and I didn't understand.


Chorus:
E                    G#m 
What could have been love,
                     F#m                 B                  E
Should have been the only thing that was ever meant to be.
             G#m                   A                 B                       E 
Didn't know, couldn't see what was right in front of me. (What could of been love)
                 G#m                 F#m            B                     C#m
And now that I'm alone all I have is emptiness that comes from being free.
                     B               A 
What could have been love will never be.
                     B
What could have been love will never be.
                              E - B - A - B
What could have been love...
                              E - B - A - B
What could have been love...
                              E - B - A - B        E - B - A
What could have been love...
