Not About You

this song is not about you
makes not one mention of your name
this song's got nothing to do with you
but i bet you'll read into it just the same

this song is not about us
got nothing to do with our pain
why would i choose to discuss us
in a poorly constructed melodic refrain

julia harrison: brown hair, green eyes
lives at 104 Lakeview Drive,
has a pet turtle, takes antidepressants
social security # 033-97-2165

this song's not a message from me
conveying some feeling or claim
and this song's not an apology from me
besides, well, i'm not the one who's to blame

julia harrison: brown hair, green eyes
but she'll color you black and blue; take my advice
enjoy her smile, but don't let it fool 'ya
ask her about the time she flipped out on me in front of those rabbis

this song is not about you
makes very few mentions of your name
this song's got nothing to do
with you, but I bet you'll read into it just the same
yes I'm sure you'll read into it just the same
