Destiny's Child – If lyrics
(Michelle)
If I don't pick up the phone like I use to (for you)
Don't you take it personal
(Kelly)
If I don't do all the things that I use to do (to you)
I ain't mad at you
(Beyonce)
If you get to feeling stressed up in your chest thinking that you're about to lose
Baby it's true
(Michelle)
And If you're losing out on sleep
Home worrying about me (that's how it be)

[Chorus:]
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I ain't stressing bout a dog gone thing
Because I was true when I gave you (my love)
My love
If you search you will never find another love like (my love)
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my (my love)
My love

[Michelle]
If you think I caught a feeling when I
Heard about that other chick (no)
I already knew about it
[Kelly]
I just needed time just to clear my mind and ask myself
(Why I didn't handle it)
[Beyonce]
If you would've taken care of home
Stead of leaving me alone (I)
Still would be right here with you
Taking care of you
Steady loving you
Like I use to do

[Chorus:]
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I ain't stressing bout a dog gone thing
Because I was true when I gave you (my love)
My love
If you search you will never find another love like (my love)
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my (my love)
My love

There was once a time I blame myself for what was wrong (Michelle)
I can see so clearly now because you are gone

That's how I spent all my time when you weren't at home

(Beyonce)
Playing around with them raggedy heifers
There'll be no more stressing
No more crying
No more trying
I would rather be alone
I'd rather be all by myself yeah
(beyonce)
Cause this valuable heart of mine was yours
Until I realized
Beyonce
Finally opened my eyes
(Kelly)
You see ladies, I know I knew better.
What was I thinking?
He gone miss me when I'm gone.

[Chorus:]
If you don't know
Now you know you're gonna miss (my love)
And I ain't stressing bout a dog gone thing
Because I was true when I gave you (my love)
My love
If you search you will never find another love like (my love)
You're gonna miss me
I ain't got time while you sit around and play with my (my love)
My love
