You Should've Been There

by Marshall Crenshaw

Marshall Howard Crenshaw (born November 11, 1953) is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist best known for his song "Someday, Someway", a top-40 hit in 1982.




You should've been there as the sun went down 
Colors ran all across the ground 
Then a thousand stars were spinning all around 
Do you care, you should've been there 
I saved you place right by my side 
And waited there in the candlelight 
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair 
You should've been there 

[Chorus:]
Ran into some people we used to know 
They were going somewhere I didn't want to go 
So I kept on waiting for just a little bit more 
Not getting anywhere, you should've been there 

Then I thought I saw you walking by into town 
Into the crowd I went chasing you down 
When I grabbed your arm, she spun around 
A stranger glared, you should've been there 

You should've been there 
There's always so much to see in this old town 
Don't you agree 
But then again I never said I'd be anywhere 
You should've been there 

I saved you a place right by my side 
And waited there in the candlelight 
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair 
You should've been there 

[Chorus]
