"You Should've Been There" as written by and Leroy Preston Marshall Crenshaw....
You should've been there as the sun went down
Colors ran all across the ground
Then a thousand stars were spinning all around
Do you care, you should've been there
I saved you place right by my side
And waited there in the candlelight
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair
You should've been there

[Chorus:]
Ran into some people we used to know
They were going somewhere I didn't want to go
So I kept on waiting for just a little bit more
Not getting anywhere, you should've been there

Then I thought I saw you walking by into town
Into the crowd I went chasing you down
When I grabbed your arm, she spun around
A stranger glared, you should've been there

You should've been there
There's always so much to see in this old town
Don't you agree
But then again I never said I'd be anywhere
You should've been there

I saved you a place right by my side
And waited there in the candlelight
But the only friend I had in sight was an empty chair
You should've been there

[Chorus]
