"Not Me" as written by Tommy Stewart, Pete Murray, Neil Matthew Godfrey and John L. Fahnestock....
Always waiting..
For the truth to come out
I'm caged in your eyes, and it's making me lie

So I'm not everything you wanted..
..Me to be
Sorry I ever dissapointed
I am not me

I lied my way in
Through to your heart
I feel so ugly and it's tearing at me

So I'm not everything you wanted..
..Me to be
Sorry I ever dissapointed
I am not me
So I'm not everything you wanted me to be
Sorry I ever dissapointed
I am not me..

    General CommentWow, first comment.
    I think it's about a guy trying to impress a girl. He really likes her and has been nice for a while and is waiting to find out what she really thinks. "I'm caged in your eyes"... possibly he's just a friend to her. So he goes along with everything she says to try to impress her.

    Then the chorus. It's sarcastic, he's saying he's sorry about not being what she looks for even though he's never hurt her, never made her upset. Still though, he's in deep with leading her on about how he is, but he still is a nice guy.

    Now he's lied to make her happy and he feels bad about it. Maybe this is when they are together finally or after. Probably sometime during the relationship. But now he's upset that he lied but he knows he would never disappoint her. So now if she figures out all he's lied about to get her heart, it would disappoint her.

    A little complicated and confusing, but the main point:
    He's a nice guy, always loyal and whatnot. He's gone along with what she says to get her heart. He's never hurt her though. But now that they're together, she's bound to figure out the real him and finally disappoint her.
