had it all lyrics – katharine mcphee

“had it all”

[verse 1:]
why’d i have to go and be a fool again
why’d i have to go and make a big thing outta nothing
i didn’t know what i had
’til you were gone
it was right in front of me
all along
and now those days, of same old story
are feelin’ more like faded glory

[chorus:]
i had it all
i threw it all aside
thinkin’ there was more there i needed to find
i had it all baby
’til you went away
blue skies, sunshine and b*tterflies
those were the conditions that i left behind
why did i let it go to waste
i had it all

[verse 2:]
so where are all the fireworks i thought i’d see
i still haven’t found the magic i was lookin’ for that made me leave
oh, no
i traded in my comfort zone
for empty nights of bein’ alone

[chorus:]
i had it all
i threw it all aside
thinkin’ there was more there i needed to find
i had it all baby
’til you went away
blue skies, sunshine and b*tterflies
those were the conditions that i left behind
why did i let it go to waste

[bridge:]
why did i believe that a little voice
that led me down the path to this bad choice
why don’t i listen to the angels
when they sing, oh yeah, they sing
oh yeah oh

[chorus:]
i had it all
i threw it all aside
thinkin’ there was more there i needed to find
i had it all baby
’til you went away
blue skies, sunshine and b*tterflies
those were the conditions that i left behind
why did i let it go to waste
i had it all
why did i let it go to waste
i had it all

why’d i have to go and be a fool again
