"That's Not The Issue" as written by and Jeffrey Scott Tweedy....
You've got a problem, I think you know
I'll tell you mine before you go
You've been thinking about somebody new
That's not the issue

Secrets, I have some too
I'll tell you mine before I say goodbye to you
I've been thinking 'bout leaving too
That's not the issue

I'm leaving, I'm leaving now
I'd say goodbye, but I don't know how
You've been sleeping with somebody new
That's not the issue

    General CommentWho can't relate to these lyrics? Classic song. He's saying all these things aren't an issue but they really are and that's why they broke up. This girl has serious ISSUES! She thinks she's bad ass but she isn't! Make her realize what she is gonna be missing when you're gone.

    General CommentI think that this song about a relationship, which is driven apart by one underlying problem. Thinking about(seeing)someone else is just a an after effect of an unstable relationship. It is not "the issue" itself.

    General CommentOr this could be about a guy who is in denial and doesn't wanna believe all these things he suspects about his girlfriend/spouse. Who knows?

    I do know that Wilco is awesome!
