Should’ve Been Me

This song says it all!

Should’ve Been Me by Citizen Way

I’ve read the story, I’ve seen the movie
Given to charity, and tithe my ten percent
These I remember
But I so easily forget
All this years never heard it like this
Should’ve been me, should’ve been us
Should’ve been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame, all of these scars
Should’ve been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide, why do you try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves saying thank God
It leaves me saying thank God, thank God
For the Should’ve been
I live a good life, I love a great wife
Our kids are beautiful
We got friends down the street
If I’m so thankful, why do I easily forget
Oh, that you died for all of this
When it should’ve been me, should’ve been us
Should’ve been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame, all of these scars
Should’ve been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide, why do you try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves me saying thank God
Leaves me saying thank God
For this heart you changed
This soul you raised
My God for taking my place
When it should’ve been me, should’ve been us
Should’ve been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame, all of this scars
Should’ve been stains that were never washed
It should’ve been me, should’ve been us
Should’ve been hanging there on a cross
All of this shame, all of these scars
Should’ve been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide, why do you try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves me saying thank God
Leaves me saying thank God
I guess it just leaves me saying thank God
For the should’ve been
For the should’ve been
