When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars

www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience                    
Pretending you're always right is easier than apologizing. "I'll be the first to say that I was wrong. Oh, I know I'm probably much too late…" It’s human to ignore your failures. It’s courageous to recognize them. "I should have bought you flowers and held your hand…" It’s easy to want people who make you sad to suffer like you do. It’s hard to want your ex to be happy. "I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand…" Bruno passes all three tests. Do you?



The Video                    
Bruno’s as lonely and bitter as his half-glass of whiskey. But is the glass half-full or half-empty? Will he learn from his mistake or go down with the dregs?


My Take                    
Bruno lets it all out. And He's right. Failure hurts a lot more when it's your fault. Forgiveness can't always bring back what you once had. But healing will never come if you don't face failure and ask for that forgiveness.


Ask Yourself                   
"I'll be the first to say that I was wrong." If it's so easy to end up with a broken heart, what can we do to get love right?

LYRICS                                       

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 have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have 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 have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have 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
