"Should've Said No" as written by and Taylor Swift....
Strange to think the songs we used to sing
The smiles, the flowers, everything
Is gone
Yesterday I found out about you
Even now just looking at you
Feels wrong
You say that you'd take it all back
Given one chance; it was a moment of weakness
And you said "yes"

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should've thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word like what you did with her
Would get back to me (get back to me)
And I should've been there
In the back of your mind
I shouldn't be asking myself why
You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby, and you might still have me

You can see that I've been cryin'
Baby, you know all the right things
To say
But do you, honestly
Expect me to believe
We could ever be the same?
You say that the past is the past
You need one chance; it was a moment of weakness
And you said "yes"

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should've thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word like what you did with her
Would get back to me (get back to me)
And I should've been there
In the back of your mind
I shouldn't be asking myself why
You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby, and you might still have me

I can't resist
Before you go, tell me this
Was it worth it?
Was she worth this?

No, no
No, no, no, no

You should've said no
You should've gone home
You should've thought twice before you let it all go
You should've known that word like what you did with her
Would get back to me (get back to me)
And I should've been there
In the back of your mind
I shouldn't be asking myself why
You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
You should've said no
Baby, and you might still have me

    General CommentThis guy cheated on her, and she is never going to let him back into her heart. He had a chance to prove his loyalty to her, and he didn't take her. He was stupid for thinking she wouldn't find out. He has no RIGHT to even think about asking forgiveness. He could still be happily dating Taylor if only he had said no.
    Then I love the line "I can't resist, before you go, tell me this, was it worth it? Was she worth this?"
    She needs to know one thing: Does he regret it?
    I <3 her

    General CommentA guy cheated on her, and then tried to give reasons behind why it happened, and asked for forgiveness. She tells him that he could've left, he could've said ''no'' to this other girl.
    She makes sure he knows it was his poor judgment, that is causing her to walk away from this relationship.
