Five For Fighting – What If lyrics

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 and 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 and what if I were you
?

Oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh

Had a dream of a new tomorrow
If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it
I took a step up and 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 and 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 and what if I were you?

Ooh-ooh-ooh (x2)

[Middle 8]
To the ones who make it better
Vying 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 and what if I were you?

What if your hand was my hand?
Could they hold on or let go?
What if your love was my life?
Could they love what we don’t know?
What if your hand was my hand?
Could we hold on or let go?
What if your love was my life?
And what if I were you?

    The first part of the song tells about a guy who likes a girl he don't know well yet, but that person is not reciprocating his feelings. The guy is making an effort that the girl he is pining will notice him, yet the girl is unperturbed. It's as if she already made a decision not to be bothered by him without even knowing him first. As the song progress, it tells that the reason why the girl is not reciprocating his feelings is because she is already involved with someone else, and so is the guy. Both have feelings for each other and both are already committed to someone else, but are not actually happy. The guy is asking if they change places and the girl will tell his lies about his feelings to the person he is committed and he will cry for the frustrations the girl has for the one she is involved right now. As if he is trying to tell the person all will be forgiven because they are both in love with each other. The guy is initiating the day that they will be together if the girl will only follow her heart. He is initiating the girl to jump in an affair. He is envious of those who would make a decision to be with someone whom they really love. He is asking the girl if they could only change places will she also make the decision to let go or hold on.
