If I was good
I'd tell everyone I know
If I was free
I wouldn't be so keen to go

If I was wrong
I would take it like a man
If I was smart
I would get out while I can

If I was broken
I would probably let it be
If I was dying
I wouldn't go out quietly

If I was lost
Well my heart would feel the same
If I was honest
I would probably be ashamed

But if I were you
I would notice me
If I were you
I would wait for me

If I were you
I would easily hold me and say
It's all gonna be OK

If I was rich
I would spend it on my own
If I was dignified
I'd only smoke at home

If I was dark
I would only dress in black
If I was chosen
I would gladly give it back

It's not for you to judge
From all this kind of stuff
I'm only half of what you see

    General Commentwell to me she is basically saying don't judge me b4 u know who i really am...am shes saying if u knew me as well as i knew myself-(if i were you) then u would notice me...wait for me..and hold me and say its all gonna be OK...people can really relate to this song..expesssialy teenage girls!!...it can also be about loving someone so much and u know that you would be so good for them if only they knew you...but they don't notice u becoz they don't see who u really are...

    "It’s not for you to judge
