Skillet - Should've When You Could've

SKILLET


Should've When You Could've Lyrics

I'm done, wonder where you've been
All night long when you're out with your friends
All you say that the matter's over
But now that chapter's over

I'm done trusting you it's ended
Even after I catch you red handed
You could've been my only one
But now your chance is gone

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

I'm done chasing you all over
May as well be chasing after thunder
Play hard to get if it makes you happy
For a change now you can start chasing me

Don't cry 'cause I ain't, you're sure thing
It ain't my fault you don't know a good thing
You could've been my only one
But now your chance is gone

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

Don't you understand?
Don't wanna be your backup plan
Now I won't be here to clean up when it hits the fan
You tried to kick me on your leash
It's time you started chasing me

I'm done acting like I won't be
Sitting here still wishing you wanted me
Don't say that I never told you
Take some advice from somebody who knows

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when I would've
Now I know I've had enough
Better luck next time, girl
You should, it would've been so good

You should've when you could've
You're gonna miss my love, girl
You should, it would've been so good

This song really explains my last relationship and it made me realize if I'm treated like a back up plan when I do good then they don't deserve my love skillet is amazing and has helped through a lot of hardship in life

I really think that this song is sang from God's point or view. I think that God is singing to this woman. He wants to be her top priority.

this song is like my current situation. to anyone who is going through this pain, this song is a good way to help you move on and realize that you are truly better than how are being treated.

Skillet is christian. but what they are saying in this song is to just reach out to people who have had problems like this in their life to draw them in, they are godly people..Go skillet!!!!!

skillet should be above Justin Bieber, Michael jackson, owl city and matt kennon. so vote 10 for at least five of their songs!
