Bruno Mars - When I Was Your Man

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 yours 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

“When I Was Your Man” is a song by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars, from his second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox (2012). The song was written by Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine and Andrew Wyatt, while production was handled by The Smeezingtons. It was released as the third promotional single taken from the album and as the second official single. “When I Was Your Man” is a soul piano ballad about a pre-fame heartbreak as he regrets a girl that he let get away, expressing his earnest hope that her new man is giving her all the love and attention he was unwilling, or unable to provide when they were together. It received positive reviews from music critics, who praised Mars' vocals and named it a “vulnerable and emotional ballad”. Bruno Mars himself said in many occasions that “When I Was Your Man” is his most difficult song to perform mainly because of the lyrics snd meaning.
