Bruno Mars When I Was Your Man Lyrics

Last updated: 06/09/2013 03:01:17 PM

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 it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little
When I hear your name
It all just sounds like (oooooh)
Mmm too young too dumb to realize


That I should've bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should've gave 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
Ooh and it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like (oooooh)
Mmm too young too dumb to realize


That I should've bought you flowers
And held your hands
Should've gave 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 hold you hands
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

Elsewhere, Mars' new material proves more emotionally revealing than ever. "When I Was Your Man," a stark breakup ballad (co-written with Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt) stands out amidst the edgy production, featuring only piano and Mars' raw, intense vocals. "When we started the record, I was like, 'I'm never singing another ballad again,' but that came from the gut – it's the most honest, real thing I've ever sang," he says. "When there are no safe bets, that's when I feel my blood move."
