"It's About You" as written by Scott Michael Underwood, Charles Colin, James W Stafford, Pat Monahan and Robert S Hotchkiss....
This ain't about the things I've done
Where I've been or what I won
Stand on your corner a thousand time
Lose what I got keep what I find
It's about you
It's about you

This ain't about the things you say
Or how you make me feel this way
Stand on your corner a thousand time
Lose what I got keep what I find
It's about you
It's about you

And when I get this feeling
It's hard for me to come back down
And when I get this feeling
It's hard for me to come back down
And I could be
That everything you need
And I know this could be
That free fall back to me

This ain't about the things I've done
Where I've been or what I won
Stand on your corner a thousand time
Lose what I got keep what I find
It's about you
It's about you
It's about you
It's about you
And when I get this feeling
It's hard for me to come back down
And when I get this feeling
It's hard for me

'Cause I could be
That everything you need
And I know this could be
That free fall back to me

But keeping you ain't easy
With everyone that sees me
Telling me get back on the ground
It never could be easy
Instead of you just pleasing me
You're keeping me down
And I know this could be
That free fall
Come on jump to me

    General CommentIt's about a guy who is willing to make huge sacrifices, "What I've done, What I've won" to "Lose what I got keep what I find"

    for a girl who is beyond his reach (from a different social strata perhaps - or some other fundamental difference)
    "But keeping you ain?t easy
    With everyone that sees me
    Telling me get back on the ground"

    ironically he finds the girl of his "dreams" is just keeping him down
    "Instead of you just pleasing me
    You?re keeping me down"

    regardless of that he still is falling for her and tries to make her understand it's her selfishness that's preventing true love. Hence "It's about you."

    General Commentin my honest opinion i think this song is truly about forbidden love..

    "But keeping you ain't easy
    With everyone that sees me
    Telling me get back on the ground
    It never could be easy"

    the person is floating on air, is in love but everyone else around her is telling her to forget him vice versa ...

    General CommentI think song is about a guy, who met a girl and is now sacraficing a lot to be with her. My guess is that he had a lot of plans before meeting her that he is giving up on. She is preventing him from following his dreams and everybody therefore thinks that she's bad for him. He isn't making excuses for her, though, because he knows it's true, hence the line "it's about you". However, he's still in that elated stage of love and he plans to "keep what he's found" regardless. That's my take on it, anyways. Senseless love- the best kind.
