'Is It Me' was recorded in London and New York with producer Tony Hoffer,
Whose previous credits include Beck and Air. It is The Kooks first album
With bassist Pete Denton, who replaced founding member Max Rafferty.

(First Verse)

Is it me, is it you
Is it the times that we're living through
Was it hard when I had to leave
That day you seemed to change
We all need someone to guide us
Someone to introduce the show
I needed someone just like you
Someone to let me know
I could loose it all

(Chorus)

Well I began to breakdown
Searching overtime
Bring me a pigs heart
And a glass of wine
There was nothing that you could of done
There was nothing that you should've said
We're both still chasing shadows in our hands
It was all to soon

(Second Verse)

But is it me, is it you
Is it the times that we're going through
Was it hard did your heart breakdown
Is your mind still in control
There is a violence in love
Somethings I'll never understand
So where the bullets missed you out
They hit me I'm falling down again

(Second Chorus)

Well I began to breakdown
Searching overtime
Bring me a pigs heart
And a glass of wine
There was nothing that you could of done
There was nothing that you should've said
I'm still chasing shadows in my head
It was all to soon

(Outro)

Was it me, was it you
Was it the times that we're living through
On my way to see you again
You were my only friend
I know you needed someone to guide you
And the world you should've owned
I need someone to guide me
Someone to let me know
I could loose it all

    I think this song is about a relationship where one person, let's say the the girl, changed which destroyed the relationship. And the boy is wondering who should take the blame.. Is it him? Is it her? Or just society and the way things are at the moment? And while she isn't feeling any pain, he is. All he wants is the 'old her' back.

    A relationship between two people, but one of them had to end it to prevent further destruction but it was too soon, it was for all the wrong reasons and that then caused problems for both of them not just in their daily life but how they felt towards one another. Now they want to mend, they miss one another but there's still tension, there's still hesitation but its getting there, slowly. Moonlight.

    It's about how he's about to leave for college and the other person isn't ready to continue the relationship, the boys heart is now broken and he doesn't know if it's something he did or her own insecurities that caused the relationship to crash
