It's Not Me It's You

  • Let's get the story straight
    You were a poison
    You flooded through my veins
    You left me broken
    You tried to make me think
    That the blame was all on me
    With the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you (you)

    It's not me it's you (you)
    Always has been you
    All the lies and stupid things you say and do
    It's you (you)
    It's not me it's you (you)
    All the lies and pain you put me through
    I know that it's not me it's you

    You
    You

    It's not me it's you, you

    So here we go again
    The same fight we're always in
    I don't care so why pretend
    Wake me when your lecture ends
    You tried to make me small
    Make me fall and it's all your fault
    With the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you

    It's not me it's you (you)
    Always has been you
    All the lies and stupid things you say and do
    It's you (you)
    It's not me it's you (you)
    All the lies and pain you put me through
    I know that it's not me it's you

    You
    You

    It's not me it's you, you

    Let's get the story straight
    You were a poison
    Flooding through my veins
    Your driving me insane
    And now you're gone away
    I'm no longer choking
    From the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you (you)

    It's not me it's you (you)
    Always has been you
    All the lies and stupid things you say and do
    It's you (you)
    It's not me it's you (you)
    All the lies and pain you put me through
    I know that it's not me it's you

    You
    You

    It's not me it's you
    It's not me it's you, you
    It's not me it's you
    It's not me it's you, you
    It's not me it's you
    It's not me it's you, you
    It's not me it's you
    It's not me it's you Writer/s: JOHN COOPER, JOHN LANDRUM COOPER
