1:50 by Pat Berryhill


It could have been me
With just a couple different variables
And a few slightly different scenarios

I could have found myself on a
Hot and humid Summer night
Underneath glowing and flashing lights

As the Latin Rhythms played
Because even though I’m mucho güera
I too love to Salsa and Cumbia

And know how to Bachata
I love the energy and I get it
The night and spending time with

Your friends who feel like family
You know Family
You and me and we and

They were Family
It could have been me
That was shot that night in Orlando
