(jane mariash, dianna rae)

So here you are again
Standing at my door
You know I'd understand
Well that's what friends are for

What's he done this time
What did he say
To make you so darn mad
That you're running away
Now you say you want to be like me
Independent and free

Chorus:
But if you only knew
What a single girl goes through
The long working days and the lonley nights
The empty I love yous
Oh if you only knew what it's like to be alone
Youd put your anger down
Turn around and go back home

My life looks good to you
Im always in control
No one to answer to
But no one there to hold
You see in my eyes you are the lucky one
With loving arms that you can lean upon
Id give anything I could to say
What you're throwing away

Cause (repeat chorus)

I know it's hard to face that love aint perfect everyday
But I know a hundred girls who would gladly take your place

So (repeat chorus)

Youd put your anger down
Turn around and go back home
If you only knew

    The woman's exboyfriend's current girlfriend shows up with a rant, and she wishes she was single. The woman advises her against dumping him. This is one of my favorite Reba songs.
