"Someone Else, Not Me" is the 30th single by Duran Duran, and the only single from the album Pop Trash.

About the songEdit

The song is a melancholy ballad, and one of the few songs on the Pop Trash album with lyrics actually written by vocalist Simon Le Bon -- the rest were composed by bandmates Nick Rhodes and Warren Cuccurullo.

Lyrics (English)Edit

Now while the beat is slow
Here in your arms I sway
Now that the light is low
Something I want to say
I guess you've known it for a while
But I mean trouble
I only want to see you smile
And I burst this bubble
The hardest thing is to let go

When love is real...
Like a flower loves a bee
But I know you're meant to give yourself to someone else
Not me

And I could carry on with you
Does that sound crazy?
I think you feel the same way too
And you can't face it
The hardest thing is to let go

But it's not defeat
When you set somebody free
And I know you're meant to be yourself with someone else
Not me

Can you let go?
'Cause that's love that's real
Like a flower loves a bee
And you know you're meant to give yourself to someone else
Not me

Somebody else not me
Meant for somebody else not me
Somebody else not me

Lyrics (Spansih)Edit

Acuéstate junto a mí
que la noche ya llegó
no prendas la luz, mi amor
te tengo una confesión

Desde hace tiempo has de saber
no quiero herirte
me importa tu felicidad
pero no sé cómo

Y lo peor es el adiós

si el amor es grande
como abeja en la flor
sé que tú te quieres entregar
a alguien que no soy yo

Podría seguir contigo así
y suena loco
tal vez te pase igual que a mí
mas no lo aceptes.

Y lo peor es el adiós

si el amor es grande
no sentí que te perdí
sé que tú te quieres entregar
a alguien que no soy yo

Alguien que no soy yo

Te puedes ir
pues mi amor es grande
como abeja en la flor
sé que tú te quieres entregar
a alguien que no soy yo

Alguien que no soy yo…
Buscas alguien que no soy yo...
Alguien que no soy yo…
Buscas alguien que no soy yo...

Lyrics (French)Edit

Quand je suis dans tes bras
je n'ai plus rien à dire
J'aime quand tout est lent
pour mieux nous attendrir

Depuis longtemps tu le savais
Ma vie s'écroule
Je voulais juste que tu sois bien
Mais j'ai brisé le lien
et c'est si dur de te quitter...

Quand l'amour est vrai
comme la fleur aime l'abeille
Mais je sais que tu pars
pour te donner à quelqu'un d'autre que moi

Je voulais tant que cela dure
comment te le dire
Depuis longtemps tu le sentais
mais n'en voulais plus
et le plus dur c'est d'accepter...

Mais c'est à la fin
tous mes espoirs sur nous deux
et même si tu pars
pour te donner à quelqu'un d'autre que moi

Aimer un autre que moi

Vas-tu lâcher ?
Ça c'est l'amour vrai
comme la fleur aime l'abeille
et tu sais que tu pars
pour te donner à quelqu'un d'autre que moi

Aimer un autre que moi…
Juste pour aimer un autre que moi…
Aimer un autre que moi…
Juste pour aimer un autre que moi…
Aimer un autre que moi…

B-sides, bonus tracks and remixesEdit

At Le Bon's request, the lyrics were translated into French and Spanish so he could record alternate versions, which were included as bonus tracks on various global releases:

  • "Un Autre Que Moi" ("Someone Else Not Me" en Français) - 4:19
  • "Alguien Más Que No Soy Yo" ("Someone Else Not Me" en Español) - 4:16

Chart positionsEdit

"Someone Else Not Me" only reached #53 in the UK a dissapointing placing considering most previous singles have hit the top 40, however it made the top 10 in Latvia, #1 in Poland, and #4 in Italy.
