You Should Have Loved Me


You were supposed to love me
You were supposed to hug me and tell me how proud you were when I graduated high school
I told myself you never meant to be cruel
You should have been there for me on my wedding day
You sent me a card and went on a cruise to Aruba you just sailed away
You never held my babies in your arms, never met the man I love
I always tried so hard to be your good little girl as sweet as a dove
Because I always knew someday you would disappear
You should never have been the source of my fear
You should have protected me and held me close
Instead of the one who hurt me the most
