Justin Bieber – That Should Be Me lyrics
(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.

    Wow? All the man went is his girl back? So just give her back' he is say that no matter what he love her and all dose thing that the next man Is doing that all of it should be him feeling her kiss /holding her hand/buying gift and making her happy all the day of her life /but he did something wrong and all he went is forgiveness and her back in his life. I think she should give him a next change: just for give him; but I think that he is to late and she have move on?

    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.

    I'm not a big fan of Justin Bieber but I have to admit that he has good songs, too. And one of those songs is this. It's like you are in a process of cool-off, but not that officially breaking up, but the girl had already found someone else, leaving him behind telling himself that it should be him with her.
    Just simply love this song, especially the Rascal Flatts singing. : D: D

    I totally agree. I Love Justin Bieber and wish I could be his girl but I know it wont happen. His fans need to chill and realize that. You can think he is cute, hot, amazin or whatever but don't get upset when you arent ever gonna be his girl. He isn't going to want someone who is obsessed with him as his girlfriend, all you will do you hang all over him. He wants someone who will know him as Justin Drew Bieber a teenager, not Justin Bieber the most popular singer in the World. Someone who will listen to him and talk with him.

    Look, Justin Beiber is super cute. Everyone agrees on that but there is no need to obsses over him. I think hes super cute and that he has a great voice and that I love all of his songs. But the is a 1 in infinity chance that it will be you. My friend knows him and hes look for a girl that isn't obsessed about him. He juse wants someone that will treat him like a normal person and he wants someone that wont use him for his money. I don't mean to be mean. But still.

    This song makes me cry cuz theres a guy I broke up with who I still love but he doesn't love me back & it hurts me to see him with her but I want him to b happy even though it hurts & this song says what I couldn't ever say. How much I wish that was me because I made a mistake& no matter how much I run frm the truth I'm a little too not over him but I hope one day he'll see that the one he loved well that was always me.

    This song is something we have all gone through once in our lives. We've all fall for someone who didn't love us back as much as we loved them, and we watched them fall madly in love with someone else. This song is about loving someone when they don't love you back and watching your world fall apart infront of you while you try to keep yourself together. Well that's just what I think.

    The story behind this song is basically about when you go into that phase. The break or pause phase. And when youre waiting for that one person to come back and the other seem to find someone else. And everything that youve done with them seems to be what they are doing. And you find out and its just kills you that. "that should be me doing all that and why is there someone else at my spot? " this is my meaning of this song.

    My meaning of that should be me is that you figured out that your boyfriend or girlfriend has been cheating on you and when you went somewhere nice and then your gf or bf whas there with someone else and they were holding hands and kissing. But other rise I love justin bieber he is hot. And his songs are the best in the world. I love you justin bieber.

    I think its about what he feels for her its sweet.
    My best friend just went through a brake up and even though she got a new boyfriend she still really likes the other guy she sings this song to me and tells me that her and her ex are to be together I think they were a great couple but shes a waaay better friend when she is single.

    The meaning to that should be me is:
    this guy is in love with this girl but the guy did her wrong & they took a break but she went out and found another guy. Like they say "don't leave something good to find something better, cause once you realize you had the best, the best has found better. "
    now, he realizes they never should of took a break because she found better. & he still loves her. -story of my life -. -

    This song, is about a teenage boy, deeply and pasionately in love with a teenage girl, and like most teenage boys, ends up making a mistake. She knows how he feels, and begins questioning her feeling. She decides she needs a break, and yet unfortunate for him, but lucky for her, she meets someone new, someone who she thinks is better. She figures he'll move on, no knowing that all he wants is her back, and he regrets everything wrong he has ever done to make her hurt.

    I think the meanin to that should be me is a person that you had loved once but then broke their heart but they still love you n their tellin themselves tht should be them wit you not another guy bc y'all have made alot of memoriez together. They might had made mistakes along the way but their "gettin fixed" leave them or cheat on them
    that has happened to me before, bein cheated, hit alot, not even bein a good boyfriend I did nun wrong to the guy n he treated me lik trash but thx to justin bieber by all the songs he has made he relized what he's bein doin.

    The meaning of this song goes deep. It's when you love someone and you want your world to be surrounded with their presence, but you were too afraid to take the chance and go for it when you got the opportunity. So when your love has already got someone else even if they like you back, that love has already been taken. So we stand their in that moment regretting to make that move whether we were to shy to step our feet out or too late when you just arrived. The moral to this is when you see a good opportunity, just go for it straight towards it whether it won't work or not. Just know you took your chance and bravery and said it instead of keeping it to yourself forever. Never regret it if you ever told them.

    'that should be me' it means what it says. I listen to the song as a comfort; he was my best friend, people surrounding us would forever be encouraging us to be together, but I ignored it. Which has resulted in me missing my chance, and now he's with another and I've finally realised my feelings but is it too late? I ask my self, full of regret and thoughts that. 'that should be me\'.

    I feel sad when I listen to this song because I went to Justin's concert in Malaysia and poof. The next thing you know, he's gone to Indonesia and the worse part, he brought Selena and they were sleeping together in same room, not that I'm trying to say that he had that with her but I'm just sad that he went away to early so when I hear this song I keep telling myself that should be me but not Selena.

    This song really makes you think about the one person you truly love! Have you ever loved someone but you dnt know if they love you back or if they have a girlfriend! What if he does have a girlfriend dnt you hate it when you see them holding hands, laughing, when hes buying her gifts, and giving her a kiss! Tht just makes you think that should be me! Dnt you feel replaced!
    If you think is true like it!
