  • Walking round with my head down
    But I can't hide with these high heels on
    Downtown in a thick crowd
    But it's just you that my mind is on
    Dressed up, got my heart messed up
    You got yours and I got mine
    It's unfair that I still care
    And I wonder where you are tonight

    Thinking it could be different
    But maybe we missed it yeah
    Thinking it could be different
    It could, it could

    It should've been us
    Shoulda been a fire, shoulda been the perfect storm
    It should've been us
    Coulda been the real thing
    Now we'll never know for sure, ooh
    We were crazy, but amazing, baby we both know
    It should've been us, us
    It, it, it should've been us

    Back and forth like a tug of war
    What's it all for, do I want it back
    I still got a little flame for ya
    Even though you drove me mad
    Now and then, I pretend
    That it's you when I close my eyes
    You got yours, I got mine
    But I wonder where you are tonight

    It should've been us
    Shoulda been a fire, shoulda been the perfect storm
    It should've been us
    Coulda been the real thing
    Now we'll never know for sure, ooh
    We were crazy, but amazing, baby we both know
    It should've been us, us
    It, it, it should've been us

    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us, yeah
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us
    It, it, it should've been us

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh

    Thinking it could be different
    But maybe we missed it
    Thinking it could be different
    It could, it could

    It should've been us
    Shoulda been a fire, shoulda been the perfect storm
    It should've been us
    Coulda been the real thing
    Now we'll never know for sure, ooh
    We were crazy, but amazing, baby we both know
    It should've been us, us
    It, it, it should've been us

    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us, yeah
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us
    It, it, it should've been us

    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us
    Oh oh, oh oh
    You know it should've been us
    Oh oh, oh oh
    It should've been us
    It, it, it should've been us Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
