You were standin' at my front door
When I came home tonight
And I could tell by the look you gave me
You were needin' my advice
You say you want more out of life than he can give you
As a tear rolls down your face
But girl, I've seen the way he looks at you
And I know someone who'd gladly take your place

Chorus:
If I were you
I'd run back home tonight
Tell hime everything's all right
Yeah, I know what I'd do
If I were you
I'd never let him go
I'd have someone to hold
My whole life through

If I were you

You shouldn't think you're missin' out on something
Because you wear a wedding band
'Cause I can't seem to find somebody
Who wants more than just a one night stand
You know this single life I'm livin'
Ain't all it's cracked up to be
So you've come to the wrong place
If what you want is sympathy

(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat Chorus Again)

If I were you
