"If" as written by Beyonce Knowles, Kelendria Rowland, Juanita Wynn, Chuck Jackson, Marvin Yancy, Dana Stinson, Michelle Williams, T. Blacks and Shannell Irving....
If I had a place to call my home
If I wasn't on the streets feeling alone
Maybe I could take this chance to build a life
That I could be proud of

But I don't have a job to pay my bills
I never got the chance to prove that my life could be more than cheap thrills.

I could be anything
Just take the chance
One time
But after all this and all the looks that I get
I understand(understand).

If I had a chance to wash my clothes
If I ever found a way to patch these holes
Maybe I would find the pride to straighten up
And look you in the eye

But I don't have the head to make this work
I never got degrees to prove that my life has more worth

I could be anything
Just take the chance
One time
But after all this and all the looks that I get,
I understand

(I could be anything)Understand.

I could hole the world in just one hand
If I looked like you and all your friends.

I've never found the words to show you that my life is more than what you ever had heard.

I could be anything,
Just take the chance
One time
But after all this and all the looks that I get
I understand

I could be anythign
Just take the chance
One time
But after all this and all the looks that I get,
I understand(x3)
