George Jones – If I Were lyrics

If I were your friend then I wouldn't be very blue
Cause sometimes you would have me around you
If I were a smile I could feel your lips so warm
If I were your love then would I be in your arms.

If I were a prayer you say before you go sleep tight
Then I know I'd be in your mind tonight
If I were a song the words you sing would tell of me
If I were your love then I wouldn't be lonely.

Wishful thinking in a world of fantasy
Yes, someone you just forgot
And you only might as well believe
For I can be something that I'm not.

If I were your picture your love for me would always last
If I were your love then I wouldn't be just your past
If I were your love then I wouldn't be just your past
No, if I were your love then I wouldn't be just your past...
