Bouncy new wave style. Very, very good use of title to create a strong lyrical hook. Very nice use of musical hooks throughout this song. Sections separated very well and their distinct roles brings a power to this song that propels it forward. Engaging and captivating lyrics that are delivered with a passion that makes the narrator instantly believable. There is no bitterness just a stance that it's not about you, its about me. This song could act as supportive for any relationship breakup or resigning from a hated job. Lyrically, this track is outstanding and should act as a role model for anyone leaving either a job, relationship, parent or any where else where you are not being heard! Very nice guitar work. Dual guitar leads and back and forth play in the musical interlude work very well together.

Why are you standing outside my door
When I told you to leave me alone?
Don’t you think if I’d wanted you here
I’d have called you on the phone?

It’s not a matter of what you do
It’s more about what I’m going through
It’s not about you
It’s about me

It’s about my life
About what I want
Finding who I am
Knowing who I’m not
It’s all about loving, hating, passion, and playing
Destiny, fate, do you hear what I’m saying?
It’s about my life

Never mind wasting time on me
‘Cause I’ve got things to do
Right now I gotta’ be free
And you just gotta’ be you

Every time I think about the way I want to be
I can’t do what I need to do
When you’re a part of me

It’s about my life
