If you're trying to find yourself then keep searching.
This is not you.

You always had to learn the hard way,
and I always point my finger.
Putting judgement aside
I just want you to know that I care.

I'm tired from staying up late rehearsing
the faces that I'll make when the bad news hits my ears.
I don't want to hear that you've given up on everything.

After all the times we said that we'd never change for anything.
After all is said,
no matter what you do,
you can come back,
and I'll always love you.
(you know this is not who you are)
(not where you belong)

This is not you.
This is not you.

    General Commentmimicry, you're awesome for putting up all these cool hand luke lyrics. thanks so much.
    so about this song... it seems pretty self-explanatory to me, it's about two friends. one has gotten into some pretty bad stuff, but the other has kept his life fairly good. the good friend says that he ends up always pointing his finger at his friend, accusing him and criticizing him for the stuff he does, but all he really wants to get across is that he genuinely cares for this friend of his. and no matter what the lost friend has done, is doing, or will do, he can come back to his friend; he will always love him.

    parts of this song can be taken as a metaphor of God and man, where God sees that man has wandered off and He just wants us to know that we can come back and He cares for us, but certain parts of the song imply that it is between two earthly friends. pretty much because God never "points the finger."

    this may be my favorite song on the "I Fought Against Myself" record.
