Bruno Mars-When I Was Your Man [One Heck of a Painfully Soulful Ballad]

Bruno Mars is talented and most of all are already aware about this. Just when I thought I have heard the best of Bruno Mars who brought us Just The Way You Are, The Lazy Song and Grenade...I was completely blown away when I listen to When I Was Your Man, taken from his second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox. Co-written by Mars himself, I can't believe how good When I Was Your Man is. I am sure a lot of people can identify with this beautiful ballad.

Bruno Mars-When I Was Your Man

Men who have taken their ladies for granted will acknowledge this whimsical number from Bruno Mars. When I Was Your Man is a soulful piano ballad supposedly about Mars himself who suffered a heartbreak on his way to stardom whereby he took the woman he loved for granted. He regretted it...but of course it was too late. Indeed this is a soul searching song depicting how vulnerable we can be at times. A very emotional ballad that shows how good Bruno Mars' voice is!

An unbelievable song!

Although the MTV appears to be somewhat simple and a bit monotonous...and you can't help but feel you are watching an MTV from the 70s or 80s...but that is exactly what MTV exudes-emotional resonance to accompany the soulful When I Was Your Man! I really love this song as it also serves as a reminder for all men to cherish the women in our lives even more. It's time...to buy them roses...spend more hours with them...

Bruno Mars-When I Was Your Man Lyrics
Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh…
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

Although it hurts
I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know

I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

Do you love this song? I must say that When I Was Your Man is by far Bruno Mars' best ballad. With only the piano as his companion, his unmistakable unique voice makes this song more profound and definitely has made his lost more excruciating heartfelt. So guys~listen to this song more often so that we will treasure our beloved woman even more. :)
