Song and Lyrics: Bruno Mars –When I Was Your Man

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

Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand
Should’ve give you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she’s dancing
With another man

My pride, my ego
My needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you
To walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up
The mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand
Should’ve give you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she’s dancing
With another man

Although it hurts
I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
Take you to every party cause I remember
How much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should’ve done
When I was your man

Do all the things I should’ve done
When I was your man
