"It's Not You (2006 EP version)" as written by and Elizabeth Mae/ivory Hale....
I'm in love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody
Hey hey!
This may come as a bit of a shock to you
How could I possibly find somebody new
I don't mean to bruise your ego
But I've had your type nailed down for so long
And I'm in desperate need of something true
Oh, you understand, it's been a long time comin'
Oh, you understand, no offense
I'm in love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody
And it's not you
I don't wanna waste time runnin' in circles
We'd end up a scratch from my broken record
Master of puppets has pulled my heart in
I found someone who has raised the bar, and
I don't think you could have lived up to my challenge
Oh, you understand, we could never make it
Oh, you understand, no hard feelings
I'm in love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody
You've probably never been shot down before
I'll try and make it easier
I'm in love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody
And it's not you
It's not you

    General CommentI love Lzzy Hale and the rest of Halestorm. They came to my town with Shinedown on June 26, 2006 and I can honestly compare her vocals to those of Brent Smith. I remember her coming out onstage and holding one note for what was probably 2 minutes.

    General CommentHer and Brent have great vocals. Their Duet of the song "Shed Some Light" from the album Us & Them is amazing. I have a rough copy from one of their shows but if you search on youtube you can see it as well.

    General CommentWho put those lyrics up? Those are terrible. Barely close to the song. These are the real lyrics:

    I'm in love with somebody
    Found someone that completes me
    I'm in love with somebody
    Oh yeah (oh yeah)
    And it's not you

    I’m now single
    Now whatcha gonna do
    See these lips are all done talkin to you
    I don't mean to bruise your ego
    But I've had you nailed down for so long
    I don't see your name on my tattoo

    I hope you understand
    It's been a long time coming
    It's for the best
    No offense

    I'm in love with somebody
    Found someone that completes me
    I'm in love with somebody
    Oh yeah (oh yeah)
    And it's not you

    I know who you think you are
    Sorry I've turned you on
    But I'm kissing you off
    Lines of whiskey and cigarettes
    But not enough to make me forget
    I got someone who has raised the bar
    I heard it all before
    Stop spinnin your wheels
    You'll use the door
    No hard feelings

    I'm in love with somebody
    Found someone that completes me
    I'm in love with somebody
    Oh yeah (oh yeah)
    And it's not you

    You probably never been shot down before
    You probably never been shot down before
    I'll try and make it easier

    I'm in love with somebody
    Found someone that completes me
    I'm in love with somebody
    Oh yeah (oh yeah)
    And it's not you
    It's not you
    It's not you

    General CommentI agree with the above. I saw this group at Rockfest '06 in Kansas City on June 10. They opened up the day and I was blown away by the talent that these guys (and gal) have. Lzzy has got a set of lungs on her!!! DAMN!!!

    General CommentActually tboesen71, they changed the lyrics to the song between their EP in 2006 and their self-titled debut in 2009. The lyrics here are the original ones.

    Lyric CorrectionFor the first verse, it's "Read my finger whatcha gonna do?"

    Not "I’m now single now whatcha gonna do?"
