Not Myself
John Mayer Lyrics


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
And 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
I always do for you

Suppose I said
You're my saving grace

Would you want me when I'm not myself? (My grace, myself)
(Not myself, when I'm someone else)
Wait it out while I am someone else? (When I'm someone else)
(When I'm someone else, when I'm not myself)
Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

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
Myself
Myself

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
Myself

Probably his easiest to learn but one of the most heartfelt songs he's written. Love the line words will go from poetry to prose.

Once you're past 50 it really hits home.
