Lyrics to Should’ve Been Me

Should’ve Been Me by Citizen Way

I’ve read the story
I’ve seen the movie
I give to charity and tithe my ten percent
These I remember but I so easily forget
All these years never heard it like this
It should’ve been me
It should’ve been us
Should’ve been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame
All of these scars
Should have 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 sayin’ thank God
It leaves me sayin’ thank God
Thank God for the should’ve been
I live a good life
I love a great wife
Our kids are beautiful
We’ve got friends down the street
If I’m so thankful
Why do I easily forget
Oh that you died for all of this
For this heart you changed
This soul you raised
My God for taking my place
