(Verse 1)
Everybody's laughing in my mind
Rumors spreadin' 'bout this other guy
Do you do what you did when you did with me,
Does he love you the way I can?
Did you forget all the plans that you made with me
Cause baby I didn't

(Chorus)
That should be me holding your hand
That should be me making you laugh
That should be me this is so sad
That should be me that should be me
That should be me feeling your kiss
That should be me buying you gifts
This is so wrong
I can't go on
'Til you believe that
That should be me
That should be me
(Verse 2)
You said you needed a little time for my mistakes
It's funny how you used that time to have me replaced
Did you think that I wouldn't see you out at the movies
What you doin' to me
You're taking him where we used to go
Now if you're tryin' to break my heart
It's working cause you know that


(Chorus)
That should be me holding your hand
That should be me making you laugh
That should be me this is so sad
That should be me that should be me
That should be me feeling your kiss
That should be me buying you gifts
This is so wrong
I can't go on
'Till you believe
That should be me

(Bridge)
I need to know should I fight for love
Or disarm
It's getting harder to shield
It's breaking my heart

Ooooh, ohhh
That should be me holding your hand
That should be me making you laugh
That should be me this is so sad
That should be me that should be me
That should be me feeling your kiss
That should be me buying you gifts
This is so wrong
I can't go on
'Till you believe
That that should be me(Holding your hand)
That should be me
(The one making you laugh) (oh baby oh)
That should be me
That should be me
(Buying you flowers)
That should be me
(Talking for hours oh)
That should be me
That should be me
That should be me
Never should've let you go, I never should've let you go
That should be me, I never should've let you go
That should be me

    I love his song because it completely described my most favorite girl in the world, my first girlfriend. We would go to the movies and my first kiss was in that building. So of course she dumps me out of the blue and I find her 2 weeks later with her new boyfriend, who's a total jerk, making out in the same spot as my first kiss in my life. I'm a sensitive guy so that made me tear up right in the middle of the theatre. I had never felt any more love than with her. Now we are back together and are in deep love. Nothing can break us apart. I'm 14 and I'm relizing the effects of love and their sorrow and happiness it brings. The love I feel for her is the most overwhelming feeling that I have. I love you Miranda.

    Accautlyi think people should be happy if they are in a relashonship that's good or bad bc some people don't. Like I like this guy but I don't think he likes me. He likes a other girl but she doesn't back. And I know that should be me other guys ask me but I'm waiting for him to come by my corner.! But it hast happened yet :(. But this song expresses how people feel these days. Good job jb: D!

    "elias265" & "quardhotty" You both have a good point, but really these obsessive girls are never gonna listen. They're gonna read what you wrote, then try to prove you wrong. No one knows him really. They know he's goregous and that he sings, but no one really "knows" him. You all are gonna listen to his music. Read the bs in the mags, then try to find out all that you can to become his "biggest fan" when really all you're gonna be is his biggest gossip chick. Someone to be avoided. Anoying at most. Give the kid a fudgen break, I mean really. He's going through enough at his age, which is like what, 15, 16? Not 30! So lil girls about the age of 12, 13, 14 give up, he's not a cradle snatcher. Sorry. Nad if anyone answers that rehitorical question on his age, I'm gonna pin you as his personal stalker, I'm just sayin.

    I should print out this lyrics and ask my brother to listen to jb song for this time only if he wants to cure his heart together with get that chick although she hurt him many times. Girls sometimes kill guys' heart. Find a right love pals. I hope she reads his heart, poor my bro. He completely turned into a lunatic ever since he met this girl. I feel like I know my bro yesterday. I don't like that girl not that I wants her to be my bro's girl but for his life happiness sake, I should agree and accept the girl followed by welcoming her into our life.
