Not Your Fault Lyrics

She was built with a brain
and some swagger.
A little scream, little cry,
little laughter.
She's a ten,
I'm a joke in my own mind.
But she still loves to dance
with my punch lines.

This love found us
now I see it.
This love up...

    in the music video, its kind of weird actually. everything is stop motion, and made of clay apperantly. it is aaron and his band going to save a girl from all these monsters and stuff but, saying "its not your fault" could mean that it is aarons fault that she is getting into trouble a lot.

    I kind of feel as though is it's directing towards the idea of an accidental birth? "... And maybe it's a wonderful news. It's not your fault.."

    I think what the meaning of the song is the guy is deeply in love with the girl he used to date. He feels like she's too good for him, but he would do anything to protect her and keep her safe.

    I have my own interpretation of this song. I think its about a guy, meeting a girl he loves, but she likes him as a friend. He also suffers from depression, and hes humble. (Shes 10, im a joke in my own mind.) He also has a bad past (Anyone from my past get your ammo.) He begins obsessing and begins to talk to her all the time. He also blames himself for her not wanting to be with him. He may also have a disorder, and is going insane. Idk, its just how i interpret this amazing song.

    This song is about when a couple is fighting, and even if he's mad, he still loves her. He just wants to make things better, even if it calls for damaging his own ego.

    I think it's about being bi-polar. How he battles with it daily and how it affects/hurts his friends and love interest, but they still stick with him and eventually overcome it together.

    Hes an alcoholic. Think of the lyrics in that light

    I think that it involves mental illness. Bi-polar maybe.

    The gentler 'It's not that you should care, I just wanted you to know' makes me think of a woman telling the guy that she's pregnant, but she expects him to run. Him yelling all the rest: I'm confused, I'm yelling, and 'baby that's wonderful news'.....it's not your fault- is him coming to terms and accepting it, but more so her. 'This love found us now I see it', is just furthering how much he trully loves her.

    It's about him coming out of the closet. Duh.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think it's about a guy obsessed with a girl. Trying to come to grips with the way he acts toward her and trying to explain his behavior after she's left him.

    I kinda feel like this girl is so incredible that he can't believe she's with him, and he fights with himself about it...Sometimes taking his frustration out on her...

    definitely a love song
    "This love found us
    now I see it.
    This love up down.
    Please believe"
    I think the "Oh, it's not that you should care." means I understand if you've lost patience and don't want to be part of this but "I just wanted you to know."
