If That Were Me

If That Were Me

Written by Melanie Chisolm/Rick Nowels

Where do they go and what do they do
They're walking on by, they're looking at you
Some people stop, some people stare
But would they help you and do they care

How did you fall, did you fall at all
Are you happy where you are
Sleeping underneath the stars
When it's cold
Is it your hope that keeps me warm

A spare bit of change is all that I give
How is it gonna help when you've got nowhere to live
Some turn away so they don't see
I bet you'd look if that were me

How did you fall, did you fall at all
Is it lonely where you are
Sleeping in between parked cars
When it thunders
Where do you hide from the storm

Could you ever forgive my self-pity
When you've got nothing
And you're living on the streets of the city
I couldn't live without my phone
But you don't even have a home

How did we fall, can we get up at all
Are we happy where we are
On our lonely little star
When it's cold
Is it your hope that keeps me warm

Where do they go and what do they do
They're walking on by, they're looking at you
They're walking on by, they're looking at you
