"You've Got You" as written by and Eric Hutchinson....
I've got a bone to pick with you and this opportunity
I couldn't live this down enough to make up for you and me
I feel a swelling in my soul I've been choking up inside
I'd bite my tongue just for your sake but I'd swallow too much pride

[Chorus]
And who will be sorry first who will be sorry first
And if you won't be the one to budge I can tell what I am worth
And you've got you to blame for what you do to you
There's nothing shocking so it must be true
And let me set this record straight on the drama you create
Before you go and turn your back on me

I've got a lot to pay you back I've been saving up for years
I'm gonna break you into two now who's gonna hear your tears
I've been the friend you never had now you'll never have me back
I bear a witness to your faults and that line's severely cracked

You're gonna live your life and stay on your side
You're not ashamed to try you're more afraid of why
This bridge is burning now it's caving in
We're never gonna win we'll run in circles till we fall in line

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl that made a lot of drama and everything went her way but eventually it came back to get her, and now her only explanation for what happened to her is that she brought it on herself. What a great song, it can be related to so many situations in life.

    "I got a bone to pick with you
    And this opportunity
    I couldn’t live this down enough to make up for you and me
    I feel a swelling in my soul, I’ve been choking up inside
    I bite my tongue before you say, but I swallowed too much pride
    And who will be sorry first?
    Who will be sorry first?
    And if you won’t be the one to budge I can tell what I am worth

    You’ve got you to blame for what you do to you
    There’s nothing shocking so it must be true
    And let me set this record straight
    On the drama you create

    I got a lot to pay you back
    I’ve been saving up for years
    I’m gonna break you into two
    Now who’s gonna hear your tears
    I’ve been the friend you never had
    Now you’ll never have me back
    I’ve been a witness to your faults
    And the lines have barely cracked
    And who will be sorry first?
    Who will be sorry first?
    And if you won’t be the one to budge I can tell what I am worth

    You’ve got you to blame for what you do to you
    There’s nothing shocking so it must be true

    Who will be sorry first?
    And if you won’t be the one to budge I can tell what I am worth
    And who will be sorry first?
    Who will be sorry first?
    And if you won’t be the one to budge I can tell what I am worth"
