It Should Have Been, But It Wasn’t

I feel like such a loser

Why can’t I do anything right?

Instead of finding happiness

I find another fight

Does everything have to be so hard

Why can’t I ever win?

I need a friend to stand with me

Not to twist the knife further in

 

It should have been the answer

It should have been just right

It should have been my dream come true

To get me through the night

It wasn’t the only answer

It wasn’t meant to be

It wasn’t everything I  ever wanted

It wasn’t right for me

 

My stubbornness is solid

I don’t want to back down

When everyone pushes my buttons

I feel like I might drown

In anger and frustration

My temper’s going to blow

Remember to keep breathing

Now I’m the one that’s in control

 

It should have been the answer

It should have been just right

It should have been my dream come true

To get me through the night

It wasn’t the only answer

It wasn’t meant to be

It wasn’t everything I  ever wanted

It wasn’t right for me

 

So I have to start all over

This isn’t fair at all

It seems the higher I set my standards

The farther I have to fall

Why can’t I make things work out?

Will I ever be good enough?

At least I learn from every lesson

If nothing else I’m tough

 

It should have been the answer

It should have been just right

It should have been my dream come true

To get me through the night

It wasn’t the only answer

It wasn’t meant to be

It wasn’t everything I  ever wanted

It wasn’t right for me

 

It should have been so simple

It should have worked out right

It should have been, but it wasn’t

I guess I finally saw the light

 

It should have been the answer

It should have been just right

It should have been my dream come true

To get me through the night

It wasn’t the only answer

It wasn’t meant to be

It wasn’t everything I  ever wanted

It wasn’t right for me

  1. It Should have Been, But It Wasn’t was written about my feelings after a year had passed after I left a horrible job, the same job that inspired the song about crying. Rock song. You might think country, I hear rock and roll.
