"Should've Listened" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
There's clothes all over the floor
Don't remember them being here before
Smell of perfume is in here, why's lipstick on the mirror
And still I don't understand

No pictures left in the hall
There's three new holes in my wall
Where the hell's my credit cards, why's my wallet in the yard
And still I don't understand

Well, now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why's love gotta be so tough

Should see the look on my face
My shit's all over the place
Why's this happening to me, why'd you take both sets of keys
And still I don't understand

Well, now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why's love gotta be so tough

Oh, and now I guess I should've listened
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh, ahh-oh, ahh-ahh, ahh-oh, ahh-ahh

There's clothes all over my floor
I don't remember them being there before
There are no candles in here, lipstick's still on my mirror
And still I don't understand

Oh, and now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why must love be so tough

Well, now I guess I should've listened
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh
When you said you'd had enough
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh
Why's love gotta be so tough

    General Commentwell this song is pretty srait forward, but I love it anyway.
    Its about a guy who didnt listen to anything his girlfriend was saying and when she told him she would leave he stilldidnt listen and so she left, now he regrets it and he realises he should have listened too her and payed more attention, now he is paying for his lack of attention and he regrets it.
    and "tuff" ? rofl.

    General CommentHoly christ, you spelled it "tuff"???? What is wrong with you?

    It's about a guy who's girl up and left him.

    General CommentShe leaves him because he stops paying attention to her, and she's tired of being ignored.

    General Commenti love this song. i agree that it is pretty straight forward. it takes his girlfriend leaving for the guy to realize he made a mistake in not giving her what she needed. Shes gone, its because of him and now he regrets not treating her better.

    General Comment"Smell of perfume isn't here" i think should be
    "smell of perfume IS IN here"

    "It's plain there's holes in my wall" should be
    "there's 3 new holes in my wall

    "Why's love got to be so tuff?" should be TOUGH
    tuff = stone

    i agree this song is pretty straight forward
    but somehow when i forst listened to it, i had a VERY DIFFERENT idea about what is about, get this.i somehow saw IT as a rape, i know i know CRAZY and AWFUL, the line "didn't listen when you said you had enough" throw me WAY OFF , have to be something i watched that screwed up the way i saw it, but it's straight forward
    HE REGRETS NOT LISTENING TO HIS GIRLFRIEND WHO MOVED OUT OF HIS APARTMENT

    i have to see " a little trick i picked up from my fat
