"Shoulda Been Simple" as written by Marie Christina Digby, Brian Kennedy Seals and Andre Darrell Merritt....
Had every word prepared
Wasn't even scared
Rehearsed the scene a million times and still felt no where
You were just down the hall
Not knowing at all
What was about to happen when I laid it on the line

'Cause it's written on my face
Though you see it in my eyes
How do you tell someone you love
What's gonna hurt (What's gonna hurt)
Don't wanna hurt (Don't wanna hurt)

This went on too long
And telling you what's wrong
I tried and couldn't bring myself
(It shoulda been simple)
So many times I've tried
The time was never right
It was so complicated
(It shoulda been simple)

Oh, oh oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)

Oh, oh oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)

Please don't point the finger
This just kinda happen
No matter how this ends today, I wanna leave here as friends
It's not that I don't love you (Don't love you)
Don't think that I don't care (Don't care)
We were trying to fly a plane, the wings were just not there

And it's written on my face
Though you see it in my eyes
How do you tell someone you love
What's gonna hurt (What's gonna hurt)
What's gonna hurt (What's gonna hurt)

This went on too long
And telling you, "Be strong."
I tried and couldn't bring myself
(It shoulda been simple)
So many times I've tried
The time was never right
It was so complicated
(It shoulda been simple)

Oh, oh oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)

Oh, oh oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh, oh
(It shoulda been simple)

Remember the day that we said that we wouldn't change
We changed
'Cause nothing's the same anymore since that day
That day

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(Shoulda been, shoulda been)

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(Shoulda been, shoulda been)

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(Shoulda been, shoulda been)

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(Shoulda been, shoulda been)

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(oh, oh)

Shoulda been, shoulda been, shoulda been
(oh, oh)

    General CommentThe song is pretty self-explanatory. She is in a relationship with someone she loves but she has to end it because things have changed "since that day" but she can't bring herself to do something so simple.
