"You're Not The One" as written by Sky Ferreira, Daniel Leonardo Nigro, Justin Louis Raisen and Ariel Zvi Rechtshaid....
Dreams stay with you
Always on my mind
I got a lust for love
Seasons bring truth
When I found mine
It was summertime

It’s the middle of the night and I’m so gone
And I’m thinking about
How much I need you but you really want somebody else
Should be given the right to carry on
I’m still thinking about
How much I need you but you really want somebody else

You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one

Streets like a zoo
Through a city of lights, love at first sight
Silent rays of blue
They slowly glide
Right down my spine

It’s the middle of the night and I’m so gone
And I’m thinking about
How much I need you but you really want somebody else
Should be given the right to carry on
I’m still thinking about
How much I need you but you really want somebody else

You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one
You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one

I was enjoying the ride
And now we’re standing on the graveside
Left unsatisfied
Won’t even bother to fight, I know

You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one

You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one
You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one

You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one
You’re not the one
Guess you’re not the one

    My InterpretationShe wants someone who wants someone else

    A classic love triangle

    As she goes through verse by verse, she talks about how it was, "love at first sight" and how she first started dreaming about the one she wants in the "summertime"

    He's always on her mind

    But she knows he doesn't want her back and likes someone else instead

    Because he wants somebody else
    She figures he must not be the one for her, despite how much she "needs" him, because if he wants someone else it wouldn't work out between them

    Because of this, she refuses eve n to fight for him

    My InterpretationSimple, she wants somebody and can't stop thinking about them. But she knows that the feelings are not mutual and her lover has eyes for somebody else. It's the most depressing thing and I think it's liberating to sing about it like this with the upbeat song to try and move on.
