Thinking 'bout all the times I let you down
Now both my feet are firmly planted on the ground
Hurting you was never in my plan
I was trying to be the man

I try to reach you but you won't answer my call
And I don't blame ya
I never dreamed that you
You'd want nothing to do with me

I know it's true
(Shoulda been)
Instead of runnin' around I should've been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Instead of breaking your heart
(Shoulda been lovin' you)

And baby I'm so sorry for the things I put you through
(Shoulda been, shoulda been lovin' you)
Now I'm starring in the mirror at a fool
(Shoulda been)

Who should been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Who shoulda been lovin' you, ooh
(Shoulda been, shoulda been lovin' you)

I'm thinkin' 'bout every time I lied unto your face
You saw right through me but still you gave me my space
Shouldn't have to tell a grown man what to do
I thought I was so damn cool

Baby, I miss you but you're moving on with your life
And I can't stop you
I could have never surmised that I'd be standing all alone
With tears fallin' from my eyes

I know it's true
(Shoulda been)
Instead of runnin' around I should've been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Instead of breaking your heart
(Shoulda been lovin' you)

Baby I'm so sorry for the things I put you through
(Shoulda been, shoulda been lovin' you)
Now I'm starring in the mirror at a fool
(Shoulda been)
Who should been lovin' you

There's what you want, you walk away from me
This is not, this is not the way it was supposed to be
Heaven knows how hard I prayed that Jesus could find a way
I would've have done, I would've have said anything to make you stay

This is not like anything in my life that I've ever felt
What am I gonna do the first time
I see you hooked up with somebody else
I think I might lose my mind, inside my heart will be bleeding
That what I get, that's what I deserve for being out there cheating

It's true
(Shoulda been)
Instead of runnin' around I should've been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Instead of breaking your heart
(Shoulda been lovin' you)

Baby I'm so sorry for the things I put you through
(Shoulda been, shoulda been lovin' you)
Now I'm starring in the mirror at a fool
(Shoulda been)
Who should been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)

Instead of runnin' around I should've been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Instead of breaking your heart
(Shoulda been lovin' you)

Baby I'm so sorry for the things I put you through
(Shoulda been, shoulda been lovin' you)
Now I'm starring in the mirror at a fool
(Shoulda been)
Who should been lovin' you
