Banks – This Is Not About Us lyrics

[Verse 1]
This is not about me
I can see you taking it personally
I see you put pride aside
I'll wait a minute while you try to compensate
Yeah, this is not about me
I see you thinking I'm the missing piece
To the puzzle that you think is your life
I'll wait a minute while you try to come for mine

[Pre-Chorus]
All this distance
Treated all bad
And I've been covered
Second-
Don't want to live a lie
The reason, battered
And it don't matter
Don't deny I've said too much
Don't ask me why

[Chorus]
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm

[Verse 2]
This is not about me
Or the way that you could never play it cool
I can see you wanting me to say
That me walking away was a big mistake
No, this is not about me
I see you drinking 'til you can't drive home
Trying to get up in my bed
You should be thinking of a way of moving on instead

[Pre-Chorus]
All this distance
Treated all bad
And I've been covered
Second-
Don't want to live a lie
Reason, battered
And it don't matter
Don't deny I've said too much
Don't ask me why

[Chorus]
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about

[Bridge]
What you told me
It never mattered
I never needed it
(This is not about)
That you were tongue-tied
And what you sold me
I never bought it
(This is not about)
How I found out
That you were weak and
You never stood up
(This is not about)
All the times I tried to prove to you

[Chorus]
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Mmm, this is not about us

[Outro]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
