[Fabolous:]
You know things don't ever go as they should, (oh oh no), right (oh oh no)
Don't you hate a could've would've should've nigga, (oh oh no, oh oh no)
Could've did would've did well you should've nigga, (oh oh no, oh oh no)

If I had a dollar for every should be you know how rich I would be
Like they say it is what it is, not what it could be
Can't cry feel guilt over spilt milk
I'm too fly, I'm too cool, word to versace silk
And my watch be filled with mad diamonds
I got good watches, just bad timing
The chick I met at the club was cute
Still feel like I'm getting brain from the substitute
Cause this ain't you and I ain't me
Plan you happy then why you're so mad at me
Can't hold on of what you had just what you got
You should be here, but you're not

[Hook - Ne-yo:]
I'm doing it again, oh yeah, what I told myself I would not do, oh
It's 4:15 am I'm sitting here drinking reminiscing on you, oh
And how I used to let you smoke even though I don't
You get blow then we both get low

As I lay here with some girl I don't know
In the back of my mind, one millionth time
I tell myself it should be you, should be you, should be you with me, right now
Said it should be you, (should be you), should be you, (should be you)
Should be you with me, right now uhh
Should be you, ahh


[Verse - Ne-yo:]
As I watch her sleep, all that I can think
She is beautiful (beautiful), but she's not you

Love for just a night, then out of my life
Damn why can I do this right, when you told me you wanted to leave
I pretended it didn't hurt me

But as I lay here I can hardly breathe
Laying next to she when in reality, it should be


[Hook - Ne-yo:]
It should be you, (oh), should be you, (should be you)
Should be you with me, (with me) right now, (right now)
Said it should be you, (oh) should be you, (oh oh)
Should be you with me, (oh with me ) right now (aha)
(ohh uhh ohh) should be you, should be you baby (ahh)

Ohh it shine the day when I know now and there was always somehow
Wish that was somewhere that I could go back
It's obvious and there's no doubt
Made a mistake and I'm down and out
Uh girl it should be

[Diddy:]
Ay yo check this out
My life, lights cameras fame and action
Feeling drained from all this private planes I'm catchin
Willing to trade all the flashy chains I'm flashin for a night
Back up for us, exchangin pain in passion
Romances, kinda like the phantom doors we used to ride
Cause it's tryin to open up, it's like suicide

God teaches lessons every day
You was all I need in life, Meth and Mary J
The sun don't shine forever
Any time that we fall I just need to climb together
Guess we avoided when we couldn't went through
That don't change the fact that it should'be been you

Girl it's should be you

[Hook - Ne-yo:]
It should be you, (oh), should be you, should be you
Should be you with me, right now, right now
Said it should be you, should be you
Should be you and me, right now (aha)
Uhh uhh, I said it should be you, it should be you baby (ahh)
