The first time we met I swore I hated you
When all you had to do was walk into the room
You got everyone's attention just by bein you
Something I could never do
But always wanted to
You were beautiful, you had it all
Never bought yourself a drink
And sittin there just watchin you
I couldn't help but think

If I could be you
I'd take your place
For an hour, for a day
I could do anything I wanted to
If I could have your perfect life
In a second I'd trade mine
There's nothin in this world I wouldn't do
If I could be you

Standin in line after too much wine in the ladies room
We started talkin bout the things men do
Yeah we'd been in each others shoes
Now it's ten years later and we've shared everything
Tears, clothes & dreams
I helped you pick your wedding ring
I remember when I held your hand the day the baby came
How that whole first year you'd call in tears
So worn out you would say

If I could be you
I'd take your place
For an hour for a day
I'd do the kind of things that I used to
What I wouldn't give sometimes
For a second that's just mine
On days like this there's nothin I wouldn't do
If I could be you

Well time flies by and how things change
Sittin in this room today
There's not much either one of us can say
The doctors have done all they can
I'm holding your hand again
Wishin I could take it all away

If I could be you
I'd take your place
For an hour for a day
And I'd gladly bear the pain you're goin through
To give you back your perfect life
In a second I'd trade mine
There's nothin in this world I wouldn't do
Girl there's nothin in this world I wouldn't do
If I could be you
