Umm

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.

[Chorus]
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 lovin you)
Now I'm starring in the mirror at a fool
Who should been lovin' you!
(Shoulda been)
Who Shoulda been lovin' you
(Shoulda been)
Oh
(Shoulda been lovin' you)

I'm thinking '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.

[Chorus]

Ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah.

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.

[Chorus: x2]

Ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah, ah, ah.
