Lyrics for Shoulda Woulda Coulda (Live) by Brian McKnight :
[Spoken Intro]
So, you think we could slow it down just a little bit?
Now, um, we all want the same things, is that right?
We all wanna love somebody and be loved the same way in return
But it doesn’t always work out that way, does it?
And I’m sure that we’ve all been there
And we sit there mad at something we shoulda done, or woulda done, or coulda done
Like this

[Verse 1]
Baby, can you put them bags down?
Just wait hold on for a minute
Gotta say a couple things before you go
Even though I know that we’re finished
I don’t want you to leave without knowing
Just where I’m coming from, babe
So I gotta say I made a big mistake
And now I gotta face the fact that I…

[Chorus]
Shoulda been a better man
The kind of man that you needed
Woulda been better off
If I’d done right by you
I coulda done this, could done that, but I know I can’t go back
‘Cause now it’s just to late
I’m saying shoulda, woulda, coulda, yeah

[Bridge]
I should have done my best to love you, baby
I should have placed no one above you
And now it’s killing me more than you know
Letting you go

[Outro]
That’s why I…
Girl, I know that I shoulda…
Coulda been a better man to you, baby
Shoulda been there for ya, every time you needed me
Every time you called me
But you that I coulda done this and coulda done that, yeah
No no no I can’t go back
‘Cause now it’s just too late
I’m saying, do you still love me like you used to?
No no no no no no no no no no
I’m saying shoulda, woulda, coulda
