"Keep It To Yourself" as written by Kacey Musgraves, Luke Laird and Shane L Mcanally....
You turn on the light
Then you turn it back off
'Cause sleeping alone, yeah it ain't what you thought
It's the drip of the sink
It's the click of the clock
And you're wondering if I'm sleeping

You heard from your friends
That I'm doing okay
And you're thinking, that maybe you made a mistake
And you want me to know
But I don't wanna know
How you're feeling

Keep it to yourself
If you think that you still love me
Put it on a shelf
If you're looking for someone
Make it someone else
When you're drunk
And it's late
And you're missing me like hell
Keep it to yourself

If you see me out and I'm standing alone
Well it don't mean that I'm gonna need a ride home
If you walk up to me like it ain't what it is
I know that it ain't gonna end with a kiss

So keep it to yourself
If you think that you still love me
Put it on a shelf
If you're looking for someone
Make it someone else
When you're drunk
And it's late
And you're missing me like hell
Just keep it to yourself
Yeah keep it to yourself

Yea, when you're drunk
And it's late
And you're sad
And you hate going home alone
'Cause you're missing me like hell
Keep it to yourself
Yea keep it to yourself

Yeah, keep it to yourself
Hm yeah keep it to yourself
Hm

    General CommentI love this song. I feel that this song is about a guy who decides to end it with his girlfriend because he thinks the grass is greener on the other side, either being single or leaving her for an ex, or even a new girl. He then realizes that after a while of being "free", it's not all that it seems and he misses her, he realizes she was his other half. She was completely heartbroken when he did this, because it all came out of the blue. He regrets what he did, but she does not want to hear it from him that he misses her because her heart still hurts and she can't bear to look at him. "Keep it to yourself, if you think that you still love me." The thoughts cross her mind and she is trying to move on by keeping him away. Possibly even no contact. I love this song :)

    My InterpretationThe couple just broke up the guy thinks he made a mistake. He wants to tell her that he wants her back. The girl thinks its way over, and she doesn't want to know if he regrets it or not so she won't go back to him. She knows it will end the same way if they go back to each other.
