You Not Me

Album: Falling Into Infinity (1997)
  • Being 'round you is driving me crazy
    Watching you run is making me lazy
    You're trying to buy a place in my head
    Telling me lines I've already read
    Speaking my name to try to confuse me
    Say it again you're starting to lose me

    That's alright, I'm okay
    It happens every single day
    It's all the same
    But I'm not blind

    It's all about you
    Not me
    It's all about the things that you're expecting me to be
    There's not enough time
    To live
    And all that you're expecting me to give

    It's all about you
    Not
    Me
    It's all about you
    Not
    Me

    You're building my prison brick by brick
    Eating your words is making me sick
    You get what you want 'cause nothing is sacred
    You're reading my mind and leaving me naked
    You say I gotta give before I receive it
    One of these days I'll believe it

    It's all about you
    Not me
    It's all about the things that you're expecting me to be
    There's not enough time
    To live
    And all that you're expecting me to give

    It's all about you
    Not
    Me
    It's all about you
    Not
    Me


    That's alright, I'm okay
    It happens every single day
    It's all the same
    But I'm not blind

    It's all about you
    Not me
    It's all about the things that you're expecting me to be
    There's not enough time
    To live
    And all that you're expecting me to give

    It's all about you
    Not
    Me
    It's all about you
    Not
    Me
    It's all about you
    Not
