"If I Were You" as written by Jason Rene Castro, Amund Bjorklund, Espen Lind and Zachary David Maloy....
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 him 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

[Chorus]

If I were you

    General CommentThe singer says that the friend isn't missing out on anything by being married and she shouldn't complain.

    So is this song just about someone regretting being married because she longed to be single? That's kinda an odd thing to make a song about. Weird.
