"What If" as written by and Kara Dioguardi Johan Alkenas....
Don't speak,
I can't believe
This is here happening,
Our situation isn't right
Get real who your playing with,
I never thought he'd be like this
You were supposed to be there by my side

When you say that you want me,
I just don't believe it
Your always ready to give up
And never turn around

But what if I need you baby
Would you even try to save me
Or would you find some lame excuse to never be true
What if I said I love you
Would you be the one to run to
Or would you watch me walk away
Without a fight

So sick of worrying, that ya
Gonna quit over anything
I could trip and you'd let go like that
And everything that we ever were
Seems to fade but not the hurt
Cause you don't know the good things from the bad
When I say that I want you
You know that I mean it
And in my hour of weakness
There's still time to try

But what if I need you baby
Would you even try to save me
Or would you find some lame excuse to never be true
What if I said I loved you
Would you be the one to run to
Or would you watch me walk away
Without a fight

Every time I speak you try and stop me
Cause every little thing I say is wrong (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You say your noticing but you never see
This is who I really am that you can't leave
Makes me wanna know right now
If it's me you'll leave without
Or would you change your mind

What if I need you

But what if I need you baby
Would you even try to save me
Or would you find some lame excuse to never be true
What if I said I loved you
Would you be the one to run to
Or would you watch me walk away without a

Oh baby what if I need you (what if I need you)
Yeah, yeah
What if I need you, what if I you
What if I need you
What if I need you
Oh what if I need you
What if I need you
Need you, you, you

    General CommentI love this song so much.

    It's pretty self explanatory in my opinion -

    She's in a relationship with a guy and she doesn't think he actually cares about her as much as he says he does, and she's not sure if he'll be true to her or not throughout this relationship.

    General Commentthe song makes me cry. like the first verse kills me in tears.

    it can be about a break up too. or like falling apart.

    and its amazing song and its beautiful!.

    her voice is so powerful. you can hear like she been thru it.

    its a great song to cry to, and just clear up your mind too. its just bout a guy thats not faithful and the girl is asking what if i need you. and she thinking he cant but he can if he just opens up his eyes.

    its just amazing song my favorite on the cd. i bought the cd. worth the buy all her songs are breathe taking.
