Should Be You
by Ne-Yo



Don't you hate a coulda' woulda' shoulda'? (oh oh no, oh oh no)
Coulda' did what it did why ya shoulda' shoulda'? (oh oh no, oh oh no)

If I had a dollar for every should be, know how reach I would be
Like they say it is what it is, not what it could be,
Can't cry feel guilt over spilled milk,
I'm too fly, I'm too cool, word to Versace silk,
And my watch be filled with mad diamonds
I got good watches just bad timing (Oh oh no)
The chick I met at the club was cute,
Still feel like I'm getting brain from the substitute,
'Cause this ain't you and that ain't me,
Claim you happy then why you're so mad at me?
Can't hold on to what you had just what you got,
You should be here, but you're not.

I'm doing it again
What I told myself I would not do, oh
It's 4:15 AM I'm sittin' here drinkin', reminiscing on you, oh
And how I used to let you smoke even though I don't
You get blowed then we both get low
As I lay here with some girl I don't' know
In the back of my mind one million times
I tell myself

It should be you, should be you
Should be you and me right now
Said it should be you (Should be you)
Should be you (Should be you)
Should be you and me right now oh oh

As I watch her sleep, all that I can think
She's beautiful (Beautiful but she's not you) but she's not you
Love her just a night, then out of my life (Out of my life)
Damn why can't I do this right?
When you told me you wanted to leave (Wanted to leave)
I pretended it didn't hurt me (didn't hurt me)
But as I lay here I can hardly breathe,
Laying next to she, when in reality, it should be

It should be you, should be you
Should be you and me right now
Said it should be you (Should be you)
Should be you (Should be you)
Should be you and me right now oh oh

Uh uh should be you, should be you baby ah

Hey check this out
My life, lights camera fame and action,
Feeling dreams from all these private planes I'm catchin'
Willing to trade all the flashy chains I'm flashin' for a night
Back up for us, exchangin' pain and passion, (Let's go)
Romances, kinda like the Phantom doors you used to ride
'Cause it's tryin' to open up, it's like suicide
God teaches lessons every day,
You was all I needed like Meth' and Mary J
The sun don't shine forever
Any time that we fall that just means we just climb together
Guess we avoided what we could've went through
That don't change the fact (Girl it should be you) that it should've been you

It should be you, should be you
Should be you and me right now (Should be you and me, girl)
Said it should be you (should be you)
Should be you (Should be you)
Should be you and me right now ah

Oh said it should be you
It should be you, you, whoa
I said it should be you, it should be you, uh oh oh oh
