If I Were You Lyrics

by Tamia

I look in the mirror, with you in my arms
And I see a reflection of a smile that says, "You believe in love"
And just for a moment, I drifted away but I couldn't stay 'cuz
A hint of love, a bit of fear, I'm tryin' to say

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cuz I think my heart has given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here, ooh yeah

I'm tryin' to protect you from the lies that your heart tells
Even though it says that you love me all I see is pain and misery
Seasons may change but I can't forget the days of old
My heart ached when you walked away, I said I'll never love again

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cuz I think my heart has given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here, ooh

The days go by and I feel that you can make me happy
Time goes on and I feel that love is at my door
And though I tell myself that you're the one who said those words before
Thought it hurts too much, I can't trust in love again, again

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

Find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cuz my heart has given up

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
In love, in love

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

Find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
My heart has given up
Can't be here

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I would stay right where you are
'Cuz I think my heart's given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you, I wouldn't be here
