Lyrics: It's not you; it's me
I think you finally see
I can't keep my heart to myself
It's out there on the shelf
For the whole world to see

It's not you; it's us
Sorry for all of the fuss
I keep thinking I can change my ways
One of these days
Oh one if these days

If I wave the olive branch
Can I have another chance
Sometimes it seem like we're still in love

It's not me; it's you
You're too good to be true
You're too good for a fool like me
It comes naturally
And yet it's still hard to do
So right there baby see
It's not me it's you

It's not me; it's you
You're too good to be true
You're too good for a fool like me
It comes naturally
And yet it's still hard to do
So right there baby see
It's not me it's you
About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
