"It's Not Me, It's You" as written by and John Cooper....
Let's get the story straight
You were a poison
You flooded through my veins
You left me broken
You tried to make me think
That the blame was all on me
With the pain you put me through
And now I know that it's not me it's you (you)

It's not me it's you (you)
Always has been you
All the lies and stupid things you say and do
It's you (you)
It's not me it's you (you)
All the lies and pain you put me through
I know that it's not me it's you

You
You

It's not me it's you, you

So here we go again
The same fight we're always in
I don't care so why pretend
Wake me when your lecture ends
You tried to make me small
Make me fall and it's all your fault
With the pain you put me through
And now I know that it's not me it's you

It's not me it's you (you)
Always has been you
All the lies and stupid things you say and do
It's you (you)
It's not me it's you (you)
All the lies and pain you put me through
I know that it's not me it's you

You
You

It's not me it's you, you

Let's get the story straight
You were a poison
Flooding through my veins
Your driving me insane
And now you're gone away
I'm no longer choking
From the pain you put me through
And now I know that it's not me it's you (you)

It's not me it's you (you)
Always has been you
All the lies and stupid things you say and do
It's you (you)
It's not me it's you (you)
All the lies and pain you put me through
I know that it's not me it's you

You
You

It's not me it's you
It's not me it's you, you
It's not me it's you
It's not me it's you, you
It's not me it's you
It's not me it's you, you
It's not me it's you
It's not me it's you

    General Commentyou know this songs has absolutly nothing to do with arguments in relationships although it may remind you of one but the meaning of this song is to break away from bad influences and how people like that can basically wreck your life

    MemoryIt reminds me of this girl i loved and she broke me heart over and over again, with all her lies and the way she would treat me. I was put through a lot of pain.

    "It's not me it's you
    Always has been you
    All the lies and stupid things you say and do
    It's you
    It's not me it's you
    All the lies and pain you put me through
    I know that it's not me it's you"

    exactly how i feel...

    My OpinionThis song is about every abuser out there. The way the get into you and make you feel like everything is your fault. The way they act and everything else. I know this song definitely applies to the abuser I am with now.

    General CommentThis song practically describes the relationship with my ex. But, as already mentioned, it's most likely about his father.

    General CommentFor me this song reminds me of my ex bf. we went out for 10 months and broke up with me on our 10th monthaversary thingy. HE said it was because he was falling out of love with me. But the real truth was that he was just scewing around with my best friend. (who no longer is my best friend). Then a month or so ago we started talking again and he blamed me! he said that i abandoned him all along and that i left him in the cold. so when he says "You tried to make me think, that the blame was all on me with the pain you put me through" sometimes when i listen to this song i feel like they're stalking me because this is exactly to the T what i went through with him.

    General CommentI do believe this is another song, (along with "Older I get" and "Open wounds") about Johns bad relationship with his father.

    Kick-ass song though, this new albums AMAZING!!!!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the relationship I have with my dad...along with open wounds. Hes always telling me everythings my fault, and that everything wrong in our lives its my fault.

    "So here we go again
    The same fight we're always in
    I don't care so why pretend
    Wake me when your lecture ends
    You tried to make me small
    Make me fall and it's all your fault
    With the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you"

    I have just now began to realize its his fault...not mine so I dont care what he says...thus I ignore his lecturing and yelling at me.

    General CommentFor me, this is definitely about my biological father. I can't speak for John or whoever wrote it, but it is exactly how I feel/don't feel about the heck that man has put me through all my life.
