Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man lyrics

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 sound like uh, uh, uh


[Chorus]
Hmmm too young, too dumb to realize
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
Should've given 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
.

Uh, My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life

Now I'll never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like uh, uh, uh, uh

[Chorus]
Hmm, Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have given 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 holds your hand
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

    I like this song because its about a man accepting responsibility for breaking a girls heart. She left him as a result of not caring enough for her but instead of holding it against her, he's in a way saying that she deserved better and he's sorry that he didn't treat he like he should've. He's also saying in a round about way that he doesn't blame her for moving onto someone else so she can be happy as she deserves this and he regrets the fact that he wasn't able to make her happy as he treated her wrongly.

    This song talks about a relationship that ended very bad, for Bruno's (or the man's) fault.
    Because he didn't pay attention to the girl, he ignored her, and given that she was a very strong woman, she decided to break up and now she has a new man.
    In the second part, Bruno doesn't talk about why they broke up, but he hopes that he buys her flowers, that he holds her hand, that he takes her to parties to dance. He hopes that her new man does all the things he didn't do when he was his man, because she deserves it.

    Well it's quite sad breakup story that the man regrets he didn't buy flowers when he was in a relationship with her ex girlfriend and wish he dedicated his most time to her. Now that they broke up and the girl has new man, he wishes her all the best and her new man would be much better than he was.
