Should've Been Me

  • Well, I went through my list of friends and found
    I had no one to tell
    Of this overwhelming clean feeling
    Strange serenity

    When I saw the girl looked just like me
    And it broke my heart, the lengths you went
    To hold me
    To get to have me, 'cause

    I haven't given you what you need
    You wanted me but couldn't reach me
    So you went into your memory
    Relived all the ways you still want me
    I haven't given you what you need
    You wanted me but couldn't reach me
    I'm sorry, it should've been me

    I'd be going 'bout my day until a hand
    Would come and lift me out
    And drop me in the middle of a labyrinth
    Where I'd be stuck a while

    When I saw the girl looked just like me
    I thought, "Must be lonely lovin' someone
    Tryin' to find their way out of a maze"
    Oh, I know

    I haven't given you what you need
    You wanted me but couldn't reach me
    So you went into your memory
    Relived all the ways you still want me
    I haven't given you what you need
    You wanted me but couldn't reach me
    I'm sorry, it should've been me
    I'm sorry, it should've been me Writer/s: Mitsuki Laycock
