Fabolous:
(You know things don't always go as they should
Right?
Don't you hate a coulda woulda shoulda nigga
Coulda did woulda did while you shoulda nigga)
If I had a dollar for every should be you know how rich I would be
Like they say it is what it is, not what it could be
Can't cry feel guilt over spilt milk
I'm too fly, I'm too cool, word to Versace silk
And my watch be filled, with mad diamonds
I got good watches, just bad timing
The chick I met at the club was was cute still feel like I'm getting brain from a substitute
'Cause this ain't chu, and I ain't me
Claiming you so happy then why you so mad at me
Can't hold on to what you had, just what you got
You should be here (but you're not)
Ne-Yo:
I'm doin' it again
What I told myself I would not do
It's 4:15 am
Sittin here drinkin'
Reminiscin' on you
And how I use to let you smoke even though I don't
You'd get blowed then we'd both get low
As I lay here with some girl I don't know
In the back of my mind
One million times
I tell myself
Chorus:
It should be you
Should be you
Should be you and me right now
Said it should be you (should be you)
Should be you (should be you)
Should be you and me right now
Ne-Yo:
As I watch her sleep
All than I can think
She's beautiful but she's not you
Love her just a night, then out of my life
Damn why can't i get this right
When you told me you wanted to leave
I pretended it didn't hurt me
But as I lay here I can hardly breathe
Layin' next to she, when in reality
Chorus:
It should be you
Should be you
Should be you and me right now
Said it should be you (should be you)
Should be you (should be you)
Should be you and me right now
Ne-Yo:
Wish I knew then what I know now
And there was someway, somehow
Wish there was some way I could go back
It's obvious there's no doubt
I made a mistake and I'm down and out
Oh girl it should be...
P. Diddy:
Yo check this out
My life
Lights camera fame and action
Feelin' drained from all these private planes I'm catching'
Willing to trade all the flashy chains and the flashin' for a night back of us pain pleasure and passion
Romances
Kinda like the phantom doors we used to ride
'Cause tryna open up is like suicide
God teaches us lessons everyday
You was all I needed like meth and mary j
The sun don't shine foreva
Anytime we fall that just means we climb togetha
Guess we avoided what we coulda went through
That don't change the fact that it shoulda been you
Ne-Yo:
Girl it should be...
Chorus:
It should be you
Should be you
Should be you and me right now
Said it should be you (should be you)
Should be you (should be you)
Should be you and me right now
