Lyrics

play Same bed but it feels
play just a little bit bigger now
play Our song on the radio
play but it don't sound the same
play When our friends talk about you,
play all it does is just tear me down
play 'Cause my heart breaks a little
play when I hear your name

play It all just sounds like oooooh
play Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
play That I should've bought you flowers
play And held your hand
play Should've gave you all my hours
play When I had the chance
play Take you to every party
play 'Cause all you wanted to do was dance
play Now my baby's dancing
play But she's dancing with another man

play My pride, my ego, my needs,
play and my selfish ways
play Caused a good strong woman
play like you to walk out my life
play Now I never,
play never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh
play And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

play It all just sounds like oooooh
play Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
play That I should've bought you flowers
play And held your hand
play Should've gave you all my hours
play When I had the chance
play Take you to every party
play 'Cause all you wanted to do was dance
play Now my baby's dancing
play But she's dancing with another man

play Although it hurts
play I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
play Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
play To try and apologize for my mistakes
play But I just want you to know

play I hope he buys you flowers
play I hope he holds your hand
play Give you all his hours
play When he has the chance
play Take you to every party
play 'Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
play Do all the things I should have done
play When I was your man
play Do all the things I should have done
play When I was your man

meaning Meaning

Mars told MTV News that

"This song is about a special woman that I let slip away at one time. It's a happy ending though ... I put everything I got into that one.

"You know it's one of those things where even girls can relate to this song. That's how it works. Everyone makes mistakes," he added. "And I remember writing that and it's the simple things, the little things. Like, I should have bought you flowers; I should have just let you know when I had the chance."
