I’ve read the story, I’ve seen the movie
I give to charity and tithe my ten percent
These I remember but I so easily forget
All these years never heard it like this

It should’ve been me, it should’ve been us
Should’ve been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame, all of these scars
Should’ve been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide, why do You try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves me saying thank God
Leaves me saying thank God, thank God
For the should’ve been

I live a good life, I love a great wife
Our kids are beautiful, we got friends down the street
If I’m so thankful, why do I easily forget
That You died for all of this

For this heart You changed, this soul You raised
My God, for taking my place, yeah, yeah

I guess it just leaves me saying thank God
For the should’ve been
For the should’ve been
