"That's Just Me" as written by and Deryl Dwaine Dodd....
You think that I will change
But you know that will never be
I'm just that way
And that's just me

Well it's just the way I am
And I am doing all I can
Why can't you see
I just can't change

I could care less what you see
I'm just never the less here for me
You're always getting what you want
But you still keep looking

I guess you're just never getting what you need
With your eyes wide open
You still keep looking for your dreams
That's just me

It doesn't matter what you say
My confidence will lead the way
Words will never do, sad but true

And if I didn't act this way
Well it just wouldn't be the same
That wouldn't do, 'cause I'm not you

And I could care less what you see
I'm just never the less here for me

You're always getting what you want
But you still keep looking
I guess you just never getting what you need
With your eyes wide open

You still keep looking for your dreams
That's just me
With your eyes wide open
You still keep looking for your dreams

That's just me
That's just me
That's just me

That's just the way I am, I am no Larry or a Sam
Why can't you see, I'm just that way!

Well there it is,
It's right here, so crystal clear
Well there it is,
It's right here, so crystal clear in front of my face!

You're always getting what you want
But you still keep looking
I guess you just never getting what you need
With your eyes wide open

You still keep looking
Eyes wide open
You still keep looking
With your eyes wide open
You still keep looking for your dreams, yeah
That's just me, oh!

Ah, you're always getting what you want
But you never get what you need
You want it
I guess you just ?

Looking for your dreams
Your dreams!
You're looking for your dreams
You're looking for your dreams

Your dreams

I could care less

    General CommentI can't believe AGAIN that I'm the first person to comment!! This is my absolout all time favourite No Doubt song! It's pretty simple. It's just saying that everyone else is looking for what they want to be and are trying to be what everyone wants them to be, but Gwen's totally happy with what she is and doesn't care what anyone else sees. This is so my song because that's exactly how I am!!

    General CommentThis song was written by Eric Stefani and his buddy Eric Keyes. Maybe this song is about Eric's confidence that No Doubt would be successful despite what some naysayers told them.

    Consider the line:
    "It doesn't matter what you say
    'Cause my confidence will lead the way"

    And it could also be about their determination to be successful doing things their own way, without changing up their musical style to fit the grunge style that was popular at the time. It could also be a message to some other musician(s) who sell out just to be popular.

    "You're always getting what you want
    But you still keep looking "
    ..."You still keep looking for your dream"

    They get what they want, but they still never fulfill their dream because they went about it the wrong way.

    By the way, I'm not trying to apply this theoretical meaning of the song to No Doubt in their later years (which I also love) or to Gwen Stefani in her solo career. I really believe she's just doing what she wants and staying true to herself and to the meaning of this song.
