It's strange to think the songs we used to sing
The smiles, the flowers, everything... is gone.
Yesterday I found out about you
Even now just looking at you... feels wrong
You say that you'd take it all back
Given one chance, it was a moment of weakness
And you... said yes!

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word 'bout what you did with her'd- get back to me
(Get back to me)
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn't be asking myself why!
You shouldn't be begging for forgivness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby and you might still have me

You can see that I've been cryin'
Baby you know all the right things... to say
But do you, honestly
Expect me, to believe...
We could ever be the same?
You say that the past is the past
You need one chance, it was a moment of weakness
And you... said yes!

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word 'bout what you did with her'd- get back to me
(Get back to me)
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn't be asking myself why!
You shouldn't be begging for forgivness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby and you might still have me
Oh oh oh

I can't resit!
Before you go tell me this
Was it worth it
Was she worth... this?

No... oh no.
No no no... oh, no

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word 'bout what you did with her'd- get back to me
(Get back to me)
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn't be asking myself why!
You shouldn't be begging for forgivness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby and you might still have me

    I think the song is about a couple and broke up cuz the guy did something with another girl without thinking what could happen if he do this and without thinking of his real girl

    Its about a couple who broke up b'coz boy did something that the girl dont liked and in anger she said his to go and he simply had gone without saying that he was sorry. And now as he has gone, she's wanting him to come back and say sorry to her and she wanted that he should have-
    "said no
    He should've gone home
    He should have thought twice before he let it all go
    He should've known that word 'bout what he did with her'd- get back to me... And i should've been there, in the back of his mind
    Shouldn't be asking myself why!
    He shouldn't be begging for forgivness at my feet
    He should've said no
    Baby and he might still have me... He say that the past is the pasthe need one chance"
