Should've Been Me
words & music: Lynn Woolever & Jill Gold

I've been thinking about you
And all we've been through
Through all of these years
As I reminisce
It's hard to resist
Shedding a few tears
You found a life with somebody else
I'm feeling sorry for myself

It should've me who put up a fight
I let you fall into her arms that night
It should've me I could've fought
It should've been me
It could've been me
But it's not

I get in my car and cruise to a bar
Where I can find a friend
I order up Jack, memories come flooding back
I'm toasting our love way back when
Now you're toasting to another girl
While I sit alone, alone in this world

It should've me, could've put up a fight
I let you fall into her arms that night
It should've me, I could've fought
It should've been me
It could've been me
But it's not

You talked with her
And danced for hours
Still I trusted you
I knew you'd come back to me
Because I loved you
I set you free

It should've me, could've put up a fight
But I let you fall into her arms that night
It should've me, it could've been me
It should've been me
It could've been me
It should've been me
Could've been me
But it's not
