Marshall Crenshaw You Should've Been There Lyrics

Last updated:

(M. Crenshaw, L. Preston)

You should've been there as the sun went down
colors ran all across the ground
Then a thousand stars were spinning all around
Do you care...you should've been there
I saved you place right by my side
and waited there in the candlelight
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair
You should've been there
chorus:
Ran into some people we used to know
They were going somewhere I didn't want to go
So I kept on waiting for just a little bit more
not getting anywhere...you should've been there
Then I thought I saw you walking by into town
Into the crowd I went chasing you down
When I grabbed your arm...she spun around
a stranger glared...you should've been there
You should've been there
there's always so much to see in this old town
Don't you agree
But then again I never said I'd be anywhere
You should've been there
I saved you a place right by my side
and waited there in the candlelight
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair
You should've been there
chorus
