"If There Was No You" as written by Brandi M. Carlile, Timothy Jay Hanseroth and Phillip John Hanseroth....
When I see myself I'm seeing you too
As long as I remember and I'm feeling like I knew
That my jokes aren't funny the truth isn't true
If there was no you

If you were my boat in the deep blue sea
I probably sink you down
I know I should have thanked you for carrying me
But for you I would happily drown

Out on your way the darkest night the longest day
I know what to say to make you laugh
And nothing you could do
Could make me turn my back on you
When you're looking for a fight I'm your man
When you need a friend you got my hand

And what I really mean what Iâ??m trying hard to say
Is that I'm counting on you and you got me too
Our secrets aren't safe I'm singing out of tune
If there was no you if there was no you

Out on your way darkest night the longest day
I know what to say to make you laugh
And nothing you could do
Could make me turn my back on you
When you're looking for a fight I'm your man
When you need a friend you got my hand
When you need a friend you got my hand
You got my hand

    General CommentI thought this was a love song too but I saw something where she said this was actually a song written after a break up but she wanted to be a good sport and not take blows at the person or something but she still got a small one in there (if you were my boat in the deep blue sea, i'd probably sink you down) I still like to think of it as a love song though because it's way cute.

    General Commentaww (: if you notice, the last cd was so much sad than this one, most of the song talk about love, friendship and loyalty.

    The other one, which i love, its about how lonely can we feel we are.
