If It Was Me (Original)

Story Behind The Song

The Inspiration of "If It Was Me" It was a fall October evening. We were in the studio kicking a few ideas and piano riffs around for our next song and not really formulating anything that we liked. So, we took a break and just starting talking for a little bit. We talked about good girls, bad girls, fun girls and pretty covered our female understanding from a-z. However, there was one topic that we could not figure out. It seems like all the "good girls" that are devoted, caring, and there for there man always date guys that cheat or mistreat them. We wonder what it is that makes a lot of good girls overlook good guys and go for the guys they think they can "change". As we stayed on this subject a riff here and a riff there started to form and verse by verse we realized we were creating a song that was everyone's heart all the way from the group to the producer to the engineer to the label managers! Once the train started rollin', it was impossible to stop and within mere hours, If It Was Me had been born..... We hope you can relate to our emotions and longing to be her boyfriend in this song. There has to be women out there who still appreciate a good, devoted man. - Sentury

Lyrics

If It Was Me by Sentury

(Rico)
Baby the questions you ask me so crazy
Being with you is easy, he just lazy
No I never be out late at night
Knowing you're at home, crying out your eyes
Now some say relationships take work, and I agree
But it aint hard, if you put love first
If I was in his shoes, you'd never have to worry about me....

Chorus

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me

(Charles)
Down on my knees and I, pray that sun stay down
Cause I need more time
To make love to you all night, all night
But that's just me, I give you everything I
You mean the world to me,
If I was in his shoes, you'd never have to worry about me.

Chorus

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me

Bridge

Fellas... If you know you do it better say "hey"
If you know you do it better and it damn near hurts say "hey" Fellas, if you know you do it better let me hear you say "hey" say "hey", say "hey"

Chorus

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me

If it was me, I never woulda let you go
If it was me, I woulda never been so
Blind I keep my eyes open wide
If it was me, If it was me
