Now it's just a memory and it's hard to think
Hard to think about it
'Bout the love I left behind, I can't help but think
What could I have done about it?

But deep inside I know
It's your fault that I'm not there
Once you put aside your pride
I know that you saw it so clearly

That you're nearly losing your mind, tryna rewind
Do what you did and didn't do, so I'm telling you
You should have did so much more to show you loved me

I'm wishing, I wish you would have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
And I'm wishing, I wish you would have held me for hours
(When I was around)

Now there's nothing you can do
But to wish I was with you
But it's too little, too late, too late, too late
Press rewind to go back in time

So there's nothing you can do
'Cause I'm no longer missing you
You should have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
'Cause now I'm gone

And baby, it's so hard to believe you
When you say that you promise you'll be better
'Cause everything you're saying right now
You were saying forever

You should have showed you loved me
You should have spent more time
You should have been the answers
To the questions in my mind

But you're here, ain't going no where
You'll never let me go
(You'll never let me go)

'Cause baby, I couldn't feel your love was real
You took for granted what we had, so I'm telling you
You should have did so much more to show you loved me

I'm wishing, I wish you would have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
And I'm wishing, I wish you would have held me for hours
(When I was around)

Now there's nothing you can do
But to wish I was with you
But it's too little, too late, too late, too late
Press rewind to go back in time

So there's nothing you can do
'Cause I'm no longer missing you
You should have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
'Cause now I'm gone

And it hurts so much inside for me to let you go
(Let you go, yeah)
But it hurts me so much more to stay with you
And I know that you can explain how much you changed
But it remains the same
It's just to late for us, it's just to late for us

There's no way to get back
All the love that we had
But I still can't help but wish that

I'm wishing, I wish you would have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
And I'm wishing, I wish you would have held me for hours
(When I was around)

Now there's nothing you can do
(And there's nothing you can do about it)
But to wish I was with you
(But to think about it)
But it's too little, too late, too late, too late
Press rewind to go back in time

So there's nothing you can do
'Cause I'm no longer missing you
You should have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them, hey, hey, hey, hey)

I'm wishing, I wish you would have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
And I'm wishing, I wish you would have held me for hours
(When I was around)

Now there's nothing you can do
(Nothing you can do)
But to wish I was with you
(But to wish I was with you)
But it's too little, too late, too late, too late
Press rewind to go back in time

So there's nothing you can do
'Cause I'm no longer missing you
You should have gave me the flowers
(When I could smell them)
'Cause now I'm gone
