You should’ve been there
Should’ve burst through the door
With that “Baby, I’m right here” smile
And it would’ve felt like
A million little shining stars had just aligned
And I would’ve been so happy

Christmas lights glisten
I’ve got my eye on the door
Just waiting for you to walk in
But the time is ticking
People ask me how I’ve been
As I comb back through my memory
How you said you’d be here
You said you’d be here…

*****

And it was like slow motion
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick
With no one to impress
And they’re all laughing
As I’m looking around the room
But there was one thing missing
And that was the moment I knew

And the hours pass by
Now I just wanna be alone
But your close friends always seem to know
When there’s something really wrong
So they follow me down the hall
And there in the bathroom
I try not to fall apart
And the sinking feeling starts
As I say hopelessly
“He said he’d be here”

*****

And it was like slow motion
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick
With no one to impress
And they’re all laughing
And asking me about you
But there was one thing missing (missing, missing)
And that was the moment I knew

What do you say, when tears are streaming down your face
In front of everyone you know?
And what do you do when the one who means the most to you
Is the one who didn’t show?

You should’ve been here
And I would’ve been so happy…

*****

And it was like slow motion
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick
With no one to impress
And they’re all standing around me singing
“Happy birthday to you”
But there was one thing missing
And that was the moment I knew
Ooh, I knew
Ooh

You called me later
And said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t make it”
And I said, “I’m sorry too”
And that was the moment I knew…

You should’ve been there,

Should’ve burst through the door

With that “”Baby I’m right here”” smile

And it would’ve felt like

A million little shining stars had just aligned

And I would’ve been so happy

Christmas lights glisten

I’ve got my eye on the door

Just waiting for you to walk in

But the time is ticking

People ask me how I’ve been, as I

Comb back through my memory

How you said you’d be here

You said you’d, be here

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they’re all laughing

As I’m looking around the room

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

And the hours pass by,

Now I just want to be alone,

But your close friends always seem to know

When there’s something really wrong

So they follow me down the hall

And there in the bathroom

I try not to fall apart

And the sinking feeling starts

As I say hopelessly “”He said he’d be here””

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they’re all laughing

And asking me about you

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

What do you say when tears are

Streaming down your face in front of

Everyone you know?

And what do you do

When the one who means the most to you

Is the one who didn’t show?

You should’ve been here,

And I would’ve been so happy

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they’re all sitting around me singing

“”Happy Birthday To You””

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew

Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,

You called me later

And said, “”I’m sorry I didn’t make it””

And I said, “”I’m sorry too””

And that was the moment I knew
