LyricsEdit

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 
Me
