After hours of deep thoughts
I came to the conclusion you're just not
meant to be with me
Everytime there's a mistake
you leave
Suffering under my smile
I'd be better off, alone for awhile
crying to myself
Cuz I don't belong here
You're so different from me
Well, I want to be with you
But you make it so hard
And don't try to hold my hand
And don't try to understand
Don't tell your lies
I know them all
By now

You say you love me
and do you love her less than this?
No.
I can tell by those "I love you" kisses
you give her in front of me
and I don't want this any more than you do
and I don't want you to say
that it's all gonna be OK
Cuz I don't belong here
You're so different from me
Well, I want to be with you
But you make it so hard
And don't try to hold my hand
And don't try to understand
Don't tell your lies
I know them all
By now

Cuz I, I don't belong here
You're so different from me
Well, I want to be with you
But you make it so hard
And don't try to hold my hand
And don't try to understand
Don't tell your lies
We've been over this
A hundred times...

    General CommentI'm surprised there aren't more comments on this song!

    As for the meaning...this is my interpretation.

    "After hours of deep thoughts..." - The narrator has given a lot of thought to the situation, and realized that it isn't "meant to be" with the guy she loves. Every time something wrong happens, the guy leaves. She smiles at the world, but inside she's "suffering." She says she's better off by herself while she cries.

    "Cuz I don't belong here..." - The two of them are opposites. She wants to be with him, but he's making it difficult. She doesn't want to rely on the guy's false promises or attempts to comfort her; she wants to rely on herself to get through this situation. She's heard the guy's attempts to comfort her dozens of times and she doesn't believe him anymore.

    "You say you love me..." - The guy gets her hopes up by telling her "I love you." But the narrator sees how he treats another girl, how he kisses the other girl and makes her feel wanted and needed and loved, and knows the guy loves them both. He can't seem to choose. She's tired of this, and he probably is too ("I don't want this any more than you do"). She doesn't want him to say "it's all going to be OK" because it won't be. The situation won't change, and she'll still be hurt.

    "Cuz I, I don't belong here...Don't tell your lies/We've been over this/A hundred times..." - Again, the narrator knows she's better off out of this situation. It's not doing her any good to stay in it. She and the guy have gone through this multiple times, but nothing ever changes. She doesn't want the guy to feed her any more lies, and she's tired of getting hurt.

    Amazing song, both in terms of words and the way Shelby sings it. Rest in peace, Shelby!
