I'm done, wonder where you've been
All night long when you're out with your friends
All you say that the matter's over
But now that chapter's over

I'm done trusting you it's ended
Even after I catch you red handed
You could've been my only one
But now your chance is gone

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

I'm done chasing you all over
May as well be chasing after thunder
Play hard to get if it makes you happy
For a change now you can start chasing me

Don't cry 'cause I ain't, you're sure thing
It ain't my fault you don't know a good thing
You could've been my only one
But now your chance is gone

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

Don't you understand?
Don't wanna be your backup plan
Now I won't be here to clean up when it hits the fan
You tried to kick me on your leash
It's time you started chasing me

I'm done acting like I won't be
Sitting here still wishing you wanted me
Don't say that I never told you
Take some advice from somebody who knows

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good
