Charted: 31
  • She said its not about you
    It's not about you, it's me
    She said it's not about you
    It's not about you, it's me

    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you, well it's driving me mad
    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you is, well it's becoming a drag

    She's a beautiful smile, she's a gleam in your eye
    Dresses like a princess, playing games in your mind
    Falling out of her top, runs a hand through her hair
    Playing so hard to get, cause she knows that you care

    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my friend
    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my

    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got nothing to say
    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got

    It's not about you (don't you go)
    I guess we got
    It's not about you (don't you go)
    I guess we got

    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you, well it's driving me mad
    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you is, well it's making me sad

    So is this how it ends? Well nobody knows
    She'll be gone for a year and we'll see how it goes
    Moving out of your flat, slipping right through your hands
    She's a difficult girl and your a sillier man

    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my friend
    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my

    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my friend
    I don't know how to love you more, how to love you more
    How to love you more, my

    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got nothing to say
    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got

    It's not about you (don't you go)
    I guess we got
    It's not about you (don't you go)
    I guess we got

    It's not about about you
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you, well it's driving me mad
    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you is, well your driving me)

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    How to love you, but I love you so
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    Why I love you, but I love you so

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    Why I love you, but I love you so
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got nothing to say
    I guess we got, I guess we got
    I guess we got (nothing to say)
    I guess we got (nothing to say)
    I guess we got (nothing to say)

    It's not about about you
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (don't you go home, don't you go home, don't you leave me here alone)
    (And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you, well it's driving me mad
    And sometimes its good
    Sometimes its bad
    But living with you is, well your driving me) Writer/s: ROY NEVILLE STRIDE

  • Heather from Halifax, NsI think it's about a guy whose girlfriend breaks up with him. He tried to make her happy but he couldn't figuare out how. He didnt't know how to love her more. He asks her not to go but she's made up her mind and he doesn't know what to say or what he'll do when she's gone. That's just my interpretation of the song, it's probably wrong but whatever. Awsome band by the way.
  • Louise from London, United KingdomThis song is obviously about the lead singer and his girlfriend breaking up, and how he cant bear to see her go her own way. Great band, coming from the uk i guess we have heard alot more about them than u fellow americans?
