Anyone but Me
Heather Cameron-Hayes Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I wish the couple on the corner would just get a room
Seems like everyone around me is on their honey moon
I'd love to take a pin to a heart shaped balloon
Everybody's got somebody but me

I don't know how I landed on this movie set
It's like a casting call for 'Romeo and Juliet'
I never would have noticed if we'd never met
But everybody's got somebody but me

And I miss you
Without you I just don't fit in
I know we're through
But I'm wishing we could try it again

I hear loves songs playing on the radio
People slow dancing everywhere I go
I'm a good slow dancer but you'd never know
'Cause everybody's got somebody but me
Yeah, they do

Everybody
Got somebody but me (got somebody)

And I miss you
Without you I just don't fit in
I know we're through
But I'm wishing we could try it again

Sitting here lonely at a table for two
Watching lovers being lovers in the corner booth
Seems like even cupid don't know what to do
Everybody's got someone but me

Yeah, I don't know if I'll ever find another you

But everybody's
Got somebody
But me

Everybody
Got somebody
Oh, everybody, everybody, everybody but me, now

Everybody's (everybody)
Got somebody (has got somebody)
Everybody (everybody but me)

Everybody's (everybody)




Got somebody (I miss you)
Everybody but me (everybody's' go somebody but me)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Anyone but me" by Heather Cameron-Hayes capture the feelings of loneliness and longing for love amidst a world where everyone seems to have found someone except the singer. The song begins with a sense of frustration as the singer wishes the couples around them would find a more private space, highlighting the prevalence of love and romantic relationships in their surroundings. The imagery of popping a heart-shaped balloon with a pin symbolizes the singer's feelings of isolation and exclusion from the love that surrounds them.


The lyrics then delve into the singer's realization of feeling like an outsider in a world that seems to revolve around romantic relationships. They compare their own situation to a movie set where everyone else is cast as the main characters in a love story, while they feel like a mere extra. The mention of 'Romeo and Juliet' emphasizes the intensity and passion of the relationships they observe, further emphasizing their own feelings of being left out and unnoticed.


The chorus of the song expresses the singer's deep yearning and longing for their lost love. Despite knowing that the relationship is over, they can't help but wish for a chance to try again. The references to love songs on the radio and people dancing romantically around them serve as constant reminders of the love they once had and now miss dearly. The singer's admission that they don't feel like they belong without their former partner showcases the depth of their emotional struggle.


Towards the end of the song, the singer paints a poignant picture of watching couples embrace and share moments of intimacy, further reinforcing their sense of loneliness and longing. The mention of Cupid, the symbol of love, being clueless about their situation adds a touch of irony to the lyrics. The final lines of the song express a mix of resignation and hope, as the singer acknowledges the difficulty of finding another love like the one they lost but still holds onto the possibility of a future connection. Overall, "Anyone but me" delves deep into the emotions of heartbreak, loneliness, and the universal desire for love and companionship.

But not me


Oh, everybody, everybody, everybody but me, now
Everyone seems to have found love but me

Everyone else has a partner


Got somebody (has got somebody)
They are in love with someone


Everybody (everybody but me)
Yet I remain alone

Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Inside my head, there's a voice that controls me
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Oh, love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Been down so long now that happy is holy
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me

Seven years strong with my therapy
Making mosaics of my memories
Puzzled with doubt, I'm my closest enemy
It's like this girl is squatting in my identity
She's a raver, a likkle libertine (ayy)
And a bouncer to my dopamine
Tried so hard to become a referee
To even out the game that's between my mind and me

Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Inside my head, there's a voice that controls me
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Ooh, love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Been down so long now that happy is holy
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Anyone but me (mmm), anyone but me (uh)

She's dependent, she's my man and wife
Peckham preacher, give 'em bad advice
She just does the spendin' and then I pay the price
Tryna be Calise but she always trip me twice
But, I know I could do better (I could do better)
Baby, we're no good together (together, together)
You are you, I am I
Now you gotta go bye

Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Inside my head, there's a voice that controls me
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Ooh, love me or leave me and let me be lonely (let me be lonely)
Been down so long now that happy is holy
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me

Anyone but me, anyone but me
Anyone but me, anyone but
Anyone but me
(But, I know I could do better)
Anyone but me
(Baby, we're no good together)
Anyone but me
(You are you, I am I)
Anyone but me
(Now you gotta go bye)

Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Inside my head, a voice that controls me
I'd rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
