  • I could tell you all the things I do for you
    But it's no surprise and you just roll your eyes and say
    "Here we go again
    She's gonna moan again"

    I should spare your love, just a thing or two
    But you don't disguise it when I'm just white noise
    And it's done before it begins
    'Cause your temper's getting thin

    But there's just one thing that I wanna know
    Just one little thing before I go
    Before I go

    It's who takes care of me?
    Tell me, who takes care of me?
    Should've been you
    Should've been you

    Do you realize, no, you never will
    'Cause your head's held high and you got your pride
    I got a little of mine still
    Yeah, the bit you couldn't kill

    I'll never blame you and I always will
    I can't explain it but it hurts like hell
    And I'm feeling so alone
    Yeah, I'm lonely to the bone

    But there's just one thing that I wanna know
    Just one little thing before I go
    Before I go

    It's who takes care of me?
    Tell me, who takes care of me?
    Should've been you, oh!
    Should've been you, oh!

    And I'm angry
    And I'm sad
    I'm the best thing that you ever had
    All I wanted was your touch
    But you told me what I wanted was just too much

    Oh, who takes care of me?
    Tell me, who takes care of me?
    Should've been you, oh!
    Should've been you
    It should've been you
    Should've been you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
