"If I Were You" as written by and John/fuller Hobbs....
If I were you
I wouldn't hurt the ones you love the way you do
I wouldn't make them cry
If I were you

I would learn to see the other point of view
You don't even try
Let's say that you were me
We'd do things differently

Cut out all the fear and lies
Then maybe you could see
The possibility to compromise
If I were you

I would look at all the quarrelling we do
'Cause that's no help at all
If I were you
I would give a little credit where it's due

That would be my call
Let's say that you were me
We'd do things differently
And cut out all the hurt and pain

Then maybe you could see
The possibility to love again
If I had the choice
You would make yourself heard

Without raising your voice
In my master plan
You could get your own way
Without raising your hand

I don't want to be the one
Getting it wrong time after time
I no longer want to play games
For any reason or rhyme

Nobody's asking you to do something
You don't want to do
If I were you
I wouldn't hurt the ones you love the way you do

I wouldn't make them cry
If I were you
I would learn to see the other point of view
But you don't even try

If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
If I were you
