If I Were You Lyrics

If I Were You by Edie Carey  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



If I Were You I'm not so good at this kind of thing
Too bad this has to be perfect
I'm a decent player
I know how to sing
But damn, damn this is tough

And hollow is all
that comes out of me
It all sounds so sickeningly familiar
I can't believe I just said that aloud
I can't believe you can stand to stand there

If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
I'd leave me

Anyone halfway normal
Would be scrambling
to make their case
I just get so damn scattered
I can't remember what you even asked me
In the next ten seconds
I've got to learn to think on my feet
You'll be that much
closer to the door
You'll be sprinting down what used to be our street

If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
I'd leave me

I tend to surrender before defeat
It's so much neater that way
With me never right
and you never wrong
There's no pretty way to balance the blame

I tend to focus on the darker side
I forget there ever was light
I tend to forget how I love this
And the fucked up reasons why

If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
I'd believe me
