"You And I Will Never See Things Eye To Eye" as written by and Laurence Paul Hardy Myles Jonathan Howell....
You grew up in the sticks
Where you struggled to get your kicks
I was raised in the town
Where the kicks keep you down
You want to make the fewest falls
So never take a chance on a jump
I'm drumming my head against the wall

Because I know that you and I will never see things eye to eye
you and I will never see things eye to eye

Maybe it's the crooked cry
A looser looking for the lost
But it's nothing that can change
A leopard change it's spots
This life's about succumbing
And using other peoples blue-prints
It doesn't mean you've given in

But I know that you and I will never see things eye to eye
you and I will never see things eye to eye

You may be built for comfort
I'm obviously built for speed
But we're all bound for the same
When your hair starts to recede
I may be no Parisian
But time is a series of poses
But I souldn't die
just to go down smelling of roses

You and I will never see things eye to eye.
you and I will never see things eye to eye

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship which is doomed to fail due to the differences in upbringing. I also think the writer is coming to terms with losing his youth and accepting that he can't win the battle to be an individual but must conform in some ways. This doesn't mean he's given in completely it just means he's going to have to take other peoples mistakes a s a guide. Great lead guitar and vocals from an underrated band from just before Brit Pop. Great days to be a kid.
