I got some things to do, but I don't want to do 'em
I got some things to say, I will never say 'em to your face

I lost my lungs, I don't really need 'em
I lost my heart, I don't really need it anymore

I am in love with somebody and guess what? It's not you
It's not you
You are in love with somebody, yeah, you love yourself so well
Love yourself so well

Smokey hands and sweaty palms
Black water and half-clear lungs
And I know I'm not going home

Broken bottles and dirty dishes
Acid flashbacks in your kitchen
You know I'm not going home

I am in love with somebody and guess what? It's not you
It's not you
You are in love with somebody, yeah, you love yourself so well
Love yourself so well

There's someone else
They love them well
Someone else
They love them


I got some things to do, but I don't want to do 'em
I got some things to say, I will never say 'em to your face

I got some things to do, but I don't want to do 'em
I got some things to say, I will never say 'em to your face
To your face

There's someone else
They love them well
This is someone else
They love them

    My InterpretationOddly enough, this song is not exactly my style but it's been one of my go to's for years as it has become personal to me.

    "I got some things to do, but I don't want to do 'em
    I got some things to say, I will never say 'em to your face"

    Although this may be true for all of us, this slapped me in the face the first time I heard it. There is so much I should be doing but I am not, I am holding myself back. There is also a girl who I have held back expressing myself to for so long. It feels like I'll never say it to her face.

    "I am in love with somebody and guess what? It's not you
    It's not you"

    I have had this tendency in my life to believe I can do anything on my own and that I shouldn't rely or fall back on anyone else. As I result, any time I start to fall for someone I instantly abort mission. So basically this line shows my indecision, I love them and then tell them that I don't because of my own fear.

    "You are in love with somebody, yeah, you love yourself so well
    Love yourself so well"

    This is when I tell myself that the only love I need is from within. I love myself so well, so what do I need anyone else for?

    "There's someone else
    They love them well
    Someone else
    They love them"

    My fear of commitment and opening up to love has caused this person to leave and love someone else. I realize that I let them go because of my own fear and that they are gone for good, to someone else.

    Someday I'll break down these walls I've built so tall.
