"Not Me" is the tenth song in Elton John's and Tim Rice's musical Aida.

The song follows the points of view of Radames, Aida, Amneris and Mereb, as they each notice and contemplate the change in Radames behavior, due to him having fallen in love with Aida, to which only Radames himself realizes.

Lyrics

Radames (Mereb): I once knew all the answers
I stood on certain ground
A picture of true happiness
A confidence so effortless
No brighter could be found (Oh no...)

I never asked the questions
That trouble me today
I knew all there was to know
Love worn lightly, put on show
My conquests on display (I can't believe he's changing)

And who'd have thought that confidence could die? (Oh no)
Not me, Not me (Not me, not me)
That all I took for granted was a lie (Oh no)
Not me, Not me (Not me, not me)
And who'd have guessed I'd throw my world away
To be with someone I'm afraid will say
Not me, not me? (This can never be)

Mereb: He's in love
But he's not the only one
Who'll be changed

Amneris: Why hasn't Radames come to see me again? We're to be married in three days, and yet...
Aida, I must make things right with him.

Aida: I shall not envy lovers
But long for what they share

Amneris: An empty room is merciless
Don't be surprised if I confess
I need some comfort there

Aida & Amneris: And who'd have thought a love could be so good?
Not me, not me
And show me things I never understood
Not me, not me
And who'd have guessed he'd throw his world away
To be with someone 'til his dying day?
Not me, not me

Radames / Amneris & Aida (Mereb): And who'd have thought a love could be so good? (No good)
Not me, not me (Not me, not me)
My/his secrets & my/his passions understood (No good)
Not me, not me (Not me, not me)
And who'd have guessed I'd/he'd throw my/his world away
To be with someone 'til my/his dying day?
Not me, not me (This can never be)

Radames: Not me
Oh, not me
