Catherine McGrath – Thought It Was Gonna Be Me Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] Put my hair up, did my make up
Fifteen minutes in the mirror ’cause you said
That tonight was the night you were gonna be back in town
Little nervous, it’s been a while since
The day you left and we didn’t but we almost did
And it’s all that I can think about

[Pre-Chorus] You said the band goes on tonight
You had me high on butterflies
Then I saw the girl standing by your side
Had to smile so I wouldn’t cry

[Chorus] And I don’t know what hurts the worst
Me alone or you with her
Or all the time I wasted on the things we never were
Or the way her hand was in your hand
Like I wanted mine to be
Or standing in the brand new dress I bought
‘Cause I thought it was gonna be me

[Verse 2] I try to sneak out, felt like such a fool
You came running, said “it’s so good to see you
Meet my girl, yeah I think you’re gonna get along”
I had to sit there and be polite
Wanted to hate her but she’s so damn nice
She made you happy, I could see in your eyes
Had to smile, so I wouldn’t cry

[Chorus] And I don’t know what hurts the worst
Me alone or you with her
Or all the time I wasted on the things we never were
Or the way her hand was in your hand
Like I wanted mine to be
Or standing in the brand new dress I bought
‘Cause I thought it was gonna be me

[Bridge] Shoulda told you, shoulda told you
Only got myself to blame
Shoulda kissed you, shoulda kissed you
Now it’s too late
Guess it’s too late
I really thought it was gonna be me, yeah

[Chorus] And I don’t know what hurts the worst
Me alone or you with her
Or all the time I wasted on the things we never were
Or the way her hand was in your hand
Like I wanted mine to be
Or standing in the brand new dress I bought
‘Cause I thought it was gonna be me

[Outro] I really thought it was gonna be me
I really thought it was gonna be me
I really thought it was gonna be me
I really thought it was gonna be me[Verse 1] Put my hair up, did my make up
