Anyone but Me
Chase Huglin Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I never really cared about Christmas or your birthday
finding out your friends still hate me.
Cause I'm stuck in my old ways.
I never want to see you again.
then you call on my birthday
and said you were sorry for that one day in August
it was sunday, you weren't sorry then.
I don't know if we can get back all the love that I thought we had.
Cause I don't want to hear about your new boyfriend
you met just last week cause I never really cared about who you let inside your sheets




so I write this song, some sing alongs and try to get some sleep and maybe next year
this world will revolve around anyone but me.

Overall Meaning

In this verse from Chase Huglin's song Anyone But Me, the singer expresses a general apathy towards significant events, such as Christmas or birthdays, and shows a resigned acceptance of being stuck in his own ways. The lyric "finding out your friends still hate me" suggests that the singer has experienced a breakup or some other form of falling out with someone close to him. Despite this, he does not seem particularly bothered about the situation, until he receives a call from this person on his birthday. The apology offered on this occasion, however, does not seem to have been genuine; the singer recalls that it was a Sunday, implying that the apology was simply given out of obligation rather than sincerity.


The second half of the verse delves further into the singer's feelings about the situation. He seems resigned to the fact that the love that once existed between him and this person may be beyond repair, and specifically avoids hearing about their new partner or romantic prospects. The use of the phrase "who you let inside your sheets" suggests a certain degree of bitterness or resentment towards the person. The verse ends on a note of emotional exhaustion, with the singer attempting to find solace in writing music and hoping that the focus of the world will shift away from him.
