Not Myself Lyrics - John Mayer

Review The Song (10)

Suppose I said
I am on my best behavior
there are times
I lose my worried mind

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

Suppose I said
Colors change for no good reason
words will go
From poetry to prose

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

And I, in time, will come around, come around
I always do for you

Suppose I said
You're my saving grace?

My grace
My self
Not myself, my myself and I...
When I'm someone else
When I'm someone else
When I'm someone else
When I'm not myself

The best | Reviewer: JM fan | 9/3/09

John Mayer is simply the best! For those who say they're not into this type of music...just listen to one of the many great John Mayer songs there is, guarantee you'll be hooked! His music is so real and all have a great melody to it. He's just an amazing artist.

i think this song is about loving someone when they are going through something terrible...and you just need to understand them and remember who they are underneath. and honestly, thats what love is.

Love the cause, not the effect.... | Reviewer: Narck | 2/9/09

We express ourselves in different ways through our children when we're young, like lovers when we're in love...And as we see the passing of time, it changes us, not in a evolving or devolving way..just different...For some people though, our change is perceived in a bad way, because they want us to stay the same...we are the same, just expressing it differently...Our loved ones often get hurt because of this part of human's nature....

LOVE IT! | Reviewer: JoAnn | 2/26/08

My husband who I am separated from right now, texted me to download this song....I listened to the words and I understand a little bit now that he needs time away to be somebody else. THANKS JOHN!!

Each person alive can relate to this song, because many times we are "Not Ourselves". The lyrics are beautiful and it's on of my favorite songs. Thank you John for letting everybody realize that for "not being themselves" is so normal from time to time. How boring would we all be if we didn't have those moments. I love your music, listen to it everyday, have all your CDs and if in fact you do read these comments, I'm 61 years old. This is just to prove to you, that your songs relate to any age, you should be so proud. Thank you.

A true fan,

perhaps the most amazing reflective song I have heard.. it makes me sad in a way.. because it's like a song that acknowledges change
