Lyrics

Hello wonderful people! Welcome to my blog. Today I would like to share one of my favorite songs by the singer/songwriter Bruno Mars. It’s called “When I Was Your Man” and it’s one of those songs that grip your heart, not just with its melody,  but with the lyrics as well. It’s a romantic and dulcet soul/pop piano ballad about a pre-fame heartbreak. Most of us have that one man or woman we let get away. He regrets the way he treated her and sincerely wishes that her new man treat her the way she deserves to be treated. Well, read the lyrics, which is poetry set to music (my opinion), and then listen and watch Bruno’s performance. If you’re not sitting dreamy thinking of a lost love by the end of this, then I don’t know what to tell you. ;D  Enjoy!

“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 sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave 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’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I 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 oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave 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’s 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 your 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 have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

    It is a beautiful song and I do agree that we have all let someone go and felt regret. Sometimes even when we knew it was the right thing to do. Thank you for sharing, there is always a tear in my eye when I listen to it.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post Yolanda. I too have moist eyes by the end of the song. It is quite lovely and he sings it with so much sentimentality.

    I adore that song and I adore Bruno Mars as well. I wonder if he wrote it while thinking of someone from his past?

      Yay! I’m so glad Doreen! According to several sources (Wikipedia, People Mag.- I don’t know how reliable they are) he wrote the ballad for a pre-fame heartbreak. It’s sad that he thinks it’s too late (unless she’s married with kids), because if she’s single I’m pretty sure she’d give him another chance. 😉

    I LOVE this song. I heard it on the radio one time and it was added on to my Spotify playlist immediately. I can’t wait to see him perform at the Super Bowl!

      Hi Darcy! I loved it the first time I heard it too. His performances are fun to watch. His entire band dances to some of the songs. It’s very entertaining. 😀
