Bruno Mars, When I was you man: testo e video

Bruno_Mars_When_I_was_Your_Man

Come il precedente "Locked Out of Heaven", anche il video di "When I Was Your man" è stato diretto dal 27enne regista e cantante Cameron Duddy. E' un binomio affiatato quello tra i due, poiché già per alcuni pezzi del precedente disco, hanno collaborato anche, come per “The Lazy Song,” e “The Other Side”.

Anche per questo video, che potete vedere dopo il salto, è rimasta l'atmosfera retrò dei precedenti lavori. Al centro del concept troviamo Bruno Mars al pianoforte mentre esegue la canzone, secondo estratto dall'album Unorthodox Jukebox. Un tema semplice, forse troppo ripetitivo che rischia di limitare l'emozione del brano in questione

Bruno Mars, When I was you man (audio e testo)

Unorthodox Jukebox è il titolo del nuovo album di Bruno Mars, in uscita il prossimo 11 dicembre 2012.

In attesa di poter ascoltare interamente il suo disco di inediti, il cantante ha rilasciato un nuovo singolo promozionale. Si tratta di "When I Was your man", una ballad nella quale l'artista canta della ragazza persa e ormai di un altro uomo a causa della sua incapacità di trattarla come davvero meritava.

Potete ascoltare l'audio e leggere il testo dopo il salto:

    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 that it does is just tear me down
    Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
    And it all just sound like uh, uh, uh

    Hmmm 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 is 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
    And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
    It all just sounds like uh, uh, uh, uh

    Too young, too dumb to realize
    That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
    Should have gave all my hours when I had the chance
    Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
    Now my baby is 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!
