  • Should've been open, should've done more
    Should've learned a lesson from the year before
    Should've been honest, should've just cried
    Should've told me there was nothing left inside

    Now the road keeps rollin' on forever
    And the years keep pullin' us apart
    We lost something, I still wonder what it was
    It shouldn't matter
    Shouldn't matter but it does

    You should've just broken, you should've come clean
    You should've been sad instead of bein' so fuckin' mean
    It shouldn't be easy, but it shouldn't be hard
    You shouldn't be a stranger in your own backyard

    Now the road keeps rollin' on forever
    And the years keep pullin' us apart
    I know it's over, I'm just sayin' this because
    It shouldn't matter
    It shouldn't matter but it does

    I shouldn't be angry, I shouldn't hold on
    I shouldn't leave you messages in every little song
    It could've been always, it could've been me
    We could've been busy namin' baby number three

    Now the road keeps rollin' on forever
    And the years keep pullin' us apart
    If it's on someone, then I blame the both of us
    It shouldn't matter
    Shouldn't matter but it
    Shouldn't matter
    Shouldn't matter but it
    Shouldn't matter
    Shouldn't matter but it does
