What If Lyrics

by Five For Fighting

Threw a line out to pull you to me
If you don't get it then you don't get it
You made your mind up before you knew me
If you don't get it then you don't get it

Take my hand for a minute
We're in it
Imagine all the pain that might be forgiven

What if I had your heart
What if you wore my scars
How would we break down
What if you were me
What if I were you

What if you told my lies
What if I cried with your eyes
Could anyone keep us down
What if you were me
What if I were you

Had a dream of a new tomorrow
If you don't get it then you don't get it
I took a step hoping you might follow
If you don't get it then you don't get it

Take a chance for a minute
Jump in it
Imagine if you asked yourself for a minute

What if I had your heart
What if you wore my scars
How would we break down
What if you were me
What if I were you

What if you told my lies
What if I cried with your eyes
Could anyone keep us down
What if you were me
What if I were you

Do the ones who make it better
Find to get out, got to touch the other side
What if all that it took to save our lives
Together was to rise up

What if I had your heart
What if you wore my scars
How would we break down (Break down)
What if I were you

What if I told your lies
What if you cried with my eyes
Could anyone keep us down
What if you were me
What if I were you

What if your hand was my hand
Could we hold on and let go
What if your life was my life
Can we love what we don't know

What if your hand was my hand
Could we hold on and let go
What if your life was my life

And what if I were you
