Mitski – Should've been me

Should’ve been me
Should’ve been me

“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 loving someone

Trying 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
