I should've kissed you there
I should've held your face
I should've watched those eyes
Instead of run in place

I should've called you out
I should've said your name
I should've turned around
I should've looked again...

But oh, I'm staring at the mess I made
I'm staring at the mess I made.
I'm staring at the mess I made
As you turn you take your heart and walk away

I should've held my ground
I could've been redeemed
For every second chance
That changed it's mind on me

I should've spoken up
I should've proudly claimed
That all my heads to blame
For all my heart's mistakes

Chorus

And it's you (x4)

And it's falling down
As you walk away
And it's on me now
As you go...

Chorus

And it's falling down
As you walk away
And it's on me now
As you go...

Chorus

    i think this song is about a boy who probably had a great girl and he sum how did something to make her leave him, nd now he regrets wat a situation he made.

    i can relate, im the girl walking away because the guy i loved nd waited for decided to go out with my best friend. she left him so now he regrets everything, nd i just said watever. he has to live with the consequence. cuz he deserved it.
