My baby, should’ve been the one
Last night I was so scared
I couldn’t close my eyes
You still live in me
Some how I made it through the night
Rescued by the break of day, once again

I know someone’s in your heart
It’s pulling me apart
But I guess I’m the one to blame (it’s so hard)
And it’s so hard (so hard)
Holding back the tears now you’ve disappeared
How I long to hold you near

Oh I should’ve been the one who’s with you now
Should’ve been the one that’s feeling proud
I failed you now
Oh I should’ve read the signs in your eyes
Should’ve had the sense to realize
I’ve lost you now

I see you laughing out loud
Standing in the crowd
The same crowd I used to know
But it’s too late now to change anything
I’ve lost everything
Gotta learn to let you go

I should’ve been the light in your eyes (should’ve been the light)
Should’ve been the fire in your smile (should’ve been the fire)
I should’ve been your spirit and your guide

I wonder do you think of me? (Do you think of me?)
Maybe you shed a tear for me (shed a tear for me)
I realize I paid the price
But nothing’s gonna change the way I fell for you

Oh I should’ve been the one who’s with you now
Should’ve been the one who’s feeling proud
Girl I’ve failed you now

Should’ve read the signs in your eyes
Should’ve had the sense to realize
I’ve lost you now
I know I let you down, baby had to fool around
Oh I should’ve been the one who’s with you now
Should’ve been the one who’s feeling proud
I failed you now
I should’ve read the signs, baby should’ve realized
Oh I should’ve read the signs in your eyes
Should’ve had the sense to realize
I’ve lost you now
I know I let you down, baby had to fool around

I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
