Yea! The author's note comes first this time. This is an upbeat little song I wrote about a month ago. Like I said, up beat for once. lol


It's Not You (It's Me)

I met you just a week ago
And we were moving nice and slow
Then suddenly we picked up the pace.
I picked out the time and place
You bought a condom just in case
Now I feel bad for leading you on.
It's something you won't want to hear
Please sit back, just drink you beer.
Listen to these words that I say.

It's not you it's me.
It's really not you,
It's really just me,
I swear it's not a simple excuse.
But I realize
That when I look into your eyes
I see him.
No there's nothing you have done
And there is nothing you can do,
This is just the way that I am.
It's not you it's me.

I thought about this yesterday
And even though it sounds cliché
You have no choice but to believe.
There's something I did not perceive
Was not a plan held up my sleeve
Can't you see I'm not over him?
I didn't mean to lead you on,
Or to cause you any harm
But right now I need to leave.

It's really not you,
It's really just me,
I swear it's not a simple excuse.
But I realize
That when I look into your eyes
I see him.
No there's nothing you can do,
This is just the way that I am.
It's not you it's me.

I really thought that I could do
Everything and more with you
Understand I gave us a try.
But every time he made me sigh
And every single tear I cried –
They're all still holding me back.

I'm sorry for wasting your time,
But he's always on my mind,
And I don't believe it's fair,
To make you believe I care.
Oh it's not you it's me!

Yeah!

It's really not you
It's really just me
I swear it's not a simple excuse.
But I realize
That when I look into your eyes
I see him.

Just the other day,
I almost called you by his name.
I'm tired of this game!
It's not you it's me.

It's really not you
It's really no excuse.
Yeah, it's not you it's me.
