If I Were You

lyrics

If I were you
I'd say it to their faces
If I were you
I'd set em straight
When every rumor that you leave
Could be your gravestone's decree
I'd tell em true
If I were you

If I were you
I'd leap before I looked
If I were you
I'd say hello
Cause every hour spent indoors
Ignores the lives that aren't yours
I'd live a few
If I were you

If I were you I'd hop a train
I'd run barefoot in the city
I'd dance naked in the rain
I've so much to see and do but I've got nothing to lose
Yeah I'd know just who I was if I were you

If I were you
I'd go on a vacation
If I were you
I'd take a break
Or were your eyes not meant to see
More than these same well-worn streets
I'd change my view
If I were you

If I were you I'd hop a train
I'd run barefoot in the city
I'd dance naked in the rain
I've so much to feel and hold but I've got nothing to lose
Oh I'd know just who I was if I were you

Well it's your life
And it's your story
And regret won't get the reaper to hold off
But when your actions bring a curse
Remember all my brave words
Of what I'd do
If I were you

If I were you I'd hop a train
I'd run barefoot in the city
I'd dance naked in the rain
I've so much to learn and love but I've got nothing to lose
Oh I'd know just who I was if I were you
