Olly Murs – This Song Is About You lyrics

This is my confessional
Pen and paper I'm gonna right this down
Saying things you never thought
That were on my mind,
Let the truth pour out
Cause I'm tired of the games
I won't lie, no I'm not ok,
You were wrong, you're to blame,
Now the world knows your name.

Chorus:
So here you go,
You're finally getting a song about you on the radio
Are you happy now that you broke me down?
Now I curse the day that I met you
I hope you know this song is about you,
This was no mistake, yes I meant to
I hope you know this song is about you, about you!

This song is about you, yeah!
Seem I'm feeling better now,
I like the way our heads lifting off my chest,
Should have done months ago
If I knew back then it would feel like this,
Cause you done all the games
I won't lie, no I'm not ok
You were wrong, you're the blame
Now the world knows your name.

Chorus:
So here you go,
You're finally getting a song about you on the radio
Are you happy now that you broke me down?
Now I curse the day that I met you
I hope you know this song is about you,
This was no mistake, yes I meant to
I hope you know this song is about you, about you.

When you hear this play,
I hope you feel the same way that I felt that day
That you let me, yeah you left me,
This is my confessional
Pen and paper I'm gonna right this down.

Chorus:
So here you go,
You're finally getting a song about you on the radio
Are you happy now that you broke me down,
Now I curse the day that I met you
I hope you know this song is about you,
This was no mistake, yes I meant to
I hope you know this song is about you, about you
About you, about you, about you,
This song is about you, yeah,
This song is about you
This song is about you, oh.

    Well, to me, it's about a boy, who obviously has had a bad break up with his girlfriend, and is feeling upset with himself, but also angry at her in a way. The line 'this is my confessional' says that he's ready to tell the world his side of the story, and let everyone know what this girl did to him. Another line 'you're finally getting a song about you on the radio' can suggest that this girl was only with him for the money or fame, and that now she's gone, he's ready to tell everyone about her. The two lines 'saying things you never thought, that were on my mind' does suggest that the boy lied or hid things to keep this girl interested, or that there were feelings about her that were never revealed. This song is quite sad, and should be considered as a break-up song.

    This song is so amazing and emotional and I couldn't ever imagine what it would.
    Be like to live without my sisters or brothers and arguments happen but not like olly murs story: simon wouldn't let him leave the x factor for one day to go to his brothers wedding or he would have to quit so olly stayed on and then ben (his brother) said he would never talk to him again and sold a story about him :( so sad.

    Me and my best mate had crushes on each other, and we used to flirt and be totally ourselfes with each other and we were so close we used to tell each other everything. And then he just left me. He doesn't even talk to me properly and I haven't done anyting wrong. He isn't there for me and I always see him I smile and he smiles ack, we were so close and in just under a week hes completely different, and I don't know what is wrong, I never did anything wrong I just miss him :(

    Firstly this song is personal to mr oliver murs (sad face) "this is my confessional pen and paper im gonna write this down" and "saying things you never throught that were on my mind let the truth pour out". It is about what people above have sad. It's about when you have been with someone and they have hurt you very badly "are you happy now that you broke me down now" and " i curse the day that i met you". He also wants them to feel hurt how he felt when he left them when he says "when you hear this play u hope u feel the same way that i felt that day that you left me yeah you left me"
    He is pouring out his heart bless him :((
