"If I Were You" as written by Anthony S. Crawford, Shae Jones and Stacey Daniels....
I look in the mirror, with you in my arms
And I see a reflection
Of a smile that says you believe in love
And just for a moment, I drifted away

But I couldn't stay 'cause
A hint of love, a bit of fear
I'm tryin' to say

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cause I think my heart has given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here
Ooh yeah

I'm tryin' to protect you
From the lies that your heart tells
Even though it says that you love me
All I see is pain and misery

Seasons may change
But I can't forget the days of old
My heart ached when you walked away
I said I'd never love again

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cause I think my heart has given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here

The days go by
And I feel that you could make me happy
Time goes on
And I feel that love is at my door
And though I tell myself that you're the one

Who said those words before
Thought it hurts too much
I can't trust in love
Again
Again

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here

And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
'Cause my heart has given up

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here
And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
I wouldn't come near this broken heart
Just turn around and leave here
And find someone who won't hurt you
Make sure that she still believes in love
My heart has given up
Can't be here

If I were you, I wouldn't be here
If I were you I would stay right where you are
'Cause my heart has given up
If I were you, I wouldn't be here

Ooh
I wouldn't, if I were you
I wouldn't be here
Oh oh oh

    General Commentshe has given up on love...cuz she was in love with a man b4 that was telling her the same things that this new man is saying to her now. so shez hesitant and fearful this relationship will end up like her last. so shez warning him that shez "damaged" and her heart is broken, but she doesnt think he deserves a damaged woman he deserves someone that will love him the same way he'll love her
