Shouldn't Matter But It Does

John Mayer

Shoulda been open
Shoulda done more
Shoulda learned a lesson from the year before

Shoulda been honest
Shoulda just cried
Shoulda told me there was nothing left inside

Now the road keeps rolling on forever
And the years keep pulling us apart
We lost something
I still wonder what it was
It shouldn’t matter
Shouldn’t matter, but it does

You shoulda just broken
You shoulda come clean
You shoulda been sad
Instead of being so fucking mean

It shouldn’t be easy
But it shouldn’t be hard
You shouldn’t be a stranger
In your own backyard

Now the road keeps rolling on forever
And the years keep pulling us apart
I know it’s over
I'm just saying this because
It shouldn’t matter
Shouldn’t matter, but it does

I shouldn’t be angry
I shouldn’t hold on
I shouldn’t leave messages
In every little song

It could have been always
It could have been me
We could have been busy
Naming baby number three

Now the road keeps rolling on forever
And the years keep pulling us apart
If it’s on someone
Then I blame the both of us
It shouldn’t matter

Shouldn’t matter, but it
Shouldn’t matter
Shouldn’t matter, but it
Shouldn’t matter
Shouldn’t matter, but it does
