Mm Yeah
See how she's lookin in my eyes
Any guy would kill for that
She's a beautiful girl and she's into me but I'm too busy still looking back
Now I'm walking her to the door tryin' to kiss her goodnight
But something inside just don't feel right

My friends tell me, tell me give it up so I've been trying to move on
But my heart's still caught and my head's not clear of the pictures from before you were gone
And I never wanna hurt no one
Tryin' to forget your name
But something inside just don't feel the same

No, she's not you
And I don't know what to say
But I'll say it anyway
No matter what I do
I can't believe the lie
And I just can't see it through
No, she's not you

I woke up in the middle of the night
Started reaching for the phone
Had to take a breath and remind myself that you said you needed time alone
Didn't know what I wanted then and I know I let you down
Baby, I know what I gotta do now, ohh

She's not you
And I don't know what to say
But I'll say it anyway
No matter what I do
I can't believe the lie
And I just can't see it through

She's not you when she smiles
Not you when she wakes
Or you when she cries
Not you when she breaks
And I don't want to hurt her
But I know that it's true
She's not you
Ohhh woah oh, not you

No, she's, she's not you
I don't know what to say
But I'll say it anyway
No matter what I do
I can't believe the lie
And I just can't see it through
(She's not you)
She's not you, yeah
And I don't know what to say
But I'll say it anyway
No matter what I do
But I can't believe the lie
And I just can't see it through
No, she's not you, woah oh

    Meaning: A guy recently broke up with a possibly long-term girlfriend and still thinks about her. Since his friends are urging him to move on, he finds another girl and tries to replace his ex with her. But then he realizes that they are not the same person at all, no matter how much he wants to "believe the lie", he can't. So he explains to his ex through this song in hopes of getting her back. He knows what he's gotta do now. It doesn't matter how beautiful she is, "she's not you".
