Nobody but Me
Save Ferris Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was on the outside
Trying to find my way back in
You were the answer
I was searching for, my friend

Life is crazy when you're
Always on your own
It's amazing when you
Realize that you're not alone

I should have known
A long time ago that
You were the one for me
I let my ego bring me down
And that's what blinded me

Life is crazy when you
Don't know what you've done
And I'm a fool to think that
There could be, someone else
When I know there's no other one

I said baby
What are you doing
Who are you fooling
Nobody but me
I said baby
Give me some time
To change your mind
Come back to me

I was nothing before you
But I became so strong
Just when things were going right
I had to make them wrong

Life is crazy
When you let things slip away
And now I'm sorry
Ever since the day
You went away

I didn't mean to hurt you so
I never wanted you to go
Now there's nothing I can do
I spend my time
Late at night
Thinking only, about you

I said baby
What are you doing
Who are you fooling
Nobody but me
I said baby
Give me some time
To change your mind
Come back to me

Ever since you went away
I haven't been the same
Now there's nothing I can do

I was on the outside
Tryin' to find my way back in
And now I'm right back there again

Life is crazy
When you find you're all alone
But now maybe
You can change your mind
And come back home to me
Come back to me




Oh baby won't you
Please come back

I was on the outside
I felt like an outsider, struggling to find my way back into a comfortable and familiar place


Trying to find my way back in
I was trying my best to regain my place in life, but it was proving difficult


You were the answer
You were the solution to my problems, the one I'd been looking for


I was searching for, my friend
I wanted to find someone to count on, someone who would help me through tough times


Life is crazy when you're
The ups and downs of life can be chaotic


Always on your own
It's even more overwhelming when you feel like you're alone on that rollercoaster


It's amazing when you
It's remarkable when you finally realize


Realize that you're not alone
that you have people there for you, and that you don't have to face everything on your own


I should have known
I wish I would've realized earlier


A long time ago that
a while ago I would've recognized


You were the one for me
that you were the one I needed in my life


I let my ego bring me down
I let my pride get in the way and hinder my ability to see reality


And that's what blinded me
it was what caused me to miss what was right in front of me


Life is crazy when you
Life can be bewildering when you don't realize


Don't know what you've done
how much you've messed up


And I'm a fool to think that
I'm an idiot for concluding


There could be, someone else
that I could find someone else to replace you


When I know there's no other one
when in fact there's nobody else like you


I said baby
I called out to you


What are you doing
what's been going on with you


Who are you fooling
who are you trying to trick


Nobody but me
you're not fooling anyone but me


Give me some time
just give me a chance to


To change your mind
make you reconsider


Come back to me
come back and be with me again


I was nothing before you
I felt insignificant and unimportant until you came along


But I became so strong
but when I met you, I found my strength and confidence


Just when things were going right
as soon as everything seemed to be working out well


I had to make them wrong
I found a way to mess them up again


Life is crazy
Life can be wildly unpredictable


When you let things slip away
when you let good things fall from your grip


And now I'm sorry
I regret everything that has happened


Ever since the day
since the time when


You went away
you left me alone


I didn't mean to hurt you so
I had no intention of causing you pain to such an extent


I never wanted you to go
I desperately wanted you to stay


Now there's nothing I can do
now I'm feeling helpless, with no options left


I spend my time
I spend my time longing


Late at night
especially during melancholic nights


Thinking only, about you
I think exclusively about you


Ever since you went away
since you left my life


I haven't been the same
I haven't been able to recover


Now there's nothing I can do
at this point, there's nothing else to be done


Life is crazy
Life can be a trainwreck at times


When you find you're all alone
when you discover you're alone in your struggles


But now maybe
but perhaps now


You can change your mind
you can alter your mind


And come back home to me
and find your way back to me


Come back to me
You're invited to return to me


Oh baby won't you
Please, oh dear


Please come back
come back and be with me again
